 Give the Perfect Gift this Christmas

A "Tribute Gift" in honor or memory of a loved one

Give the Perfect Gift this Christmas.jpgNow is the season we give thanks to God for all He has done for us this past year and throughout our lives.  It Is also a good time to begin considering how we might give back some of our wealth or assets to Him through His Church with a special year-end gift of cash and appreciated stock or other investments. A “tribute gift” in honor or memory of a loved one is a special way to show your gratitude, advance the mission of the Church and honor or remember a loved one at the same time.  You can also make other financially advantageous gifts such as real estate, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, will/trust bequests and IRA/retirement accounts.

Three easy steps for making your gift:

  1. Select the organization/ministry or cause that you would like to support by clicking on one of the four images below.  You will be taken to that particular organization's page.
  2. Once you arrive at the organization's page, determine the amount of your gift and the payment method.
  3. If you would like, make your gift a “Tribute” gift in “honor or memory” of a loved one, see below.

Thank you for your faithful generosity at Christmas and may your giving bring you great joy!
