Trinity is a congregation richly blessed.
People of diverse talents give generously of time and creativity. People of varying financial means give generously throughout the course of a year.
There are multiple ways to give financially to Trinity:
When you make a pledge you enable the Trinity vestry, the parish‘s lay governing board, to be able to plan for, and build, an annual budget to support Trinity’s many vibrant programs.
This is different from contributions you may make on Sundays or any time throughout the year. Pledged funds translate into the budget for planning, they are very real evidence of our intention to build the kingdom of God here at Trinity.
Offering Basket: On Sundays, you can place your checks or cash in the offering basket which is passed during the service. Checks placed in the offering basket are recorded on the Sunday they are received. To receive proper documentation for tax purposes, your name and address must be clearly readable on your check.
We also provide “I Donated Online” cards that you may use if you’ve given online and still would like to put something in the basket. Just fill out the quick info and place in the basket.
By check: Mail your checks (do not include cash) to the church office.
Checks are recorded according to the postmark on the envelope.

Automatic Banking: If offered through your bank, you can setup automated bill paying. Trinity will receive an electronically generated check(s). This can be setup for recurring payments or one-time payments as you choose.
Directed giving involves the special occasions that arise in the life of Christian communities that call us to give beyond our ordinary habit in order to help the community realize an especially important goal.
Gifts provide for special furnishings or support particular ministries and are important enhancements to the life and mission of Trinity Church. Such gifts may be dedicated in memory or in honor of loved ones.
Contact a member of the clergy if you’re considering a directed gift. From time to time, identified needs are noted in our parish publications. So are special appeals to aid victims of crisis or catastrophe.
Planned giving is the way in which we address the matter of sharing the blessings of our lifetime. It is the opportunity to leave a planned gift that constitutes both a legacy to generations yet unborn and a final witness to those whom we hold most dear.
Members of the clergy will gladly direct you to financial advisors with expertise in the wide range of available opportunities for planned giving. You can arrange for a planned gift to establish or advance a particular ministry through Trinity’s Memorial Fund and/or strengthen Trinity’s endowment which helps support all our ministries while also providing loan capital to launch new ministry initiatives.
