Giving

We ask every member to invest in our church with your time, your talent and your treasure. We ask each member to commit a percentage of your income as a gift to God through St. Francis’. We leave that percentage to you, but we know that the national average of gifts to churches is about 2.6%, and we think St. Francis’ is a little bit above average. So if you don’t know what percentage of your income to give to St. Francis’, we suggest you start by considering 3%, and see what that looks like. Some of our parishioners have adopted the Biblical tithe as their benchmark for giving, and find it a meaningful and satisfying practice.

We also ask every parishioner to remember your church in your will, maybe with a percentage of your estate to be left to the church as a permanent legacy of your care. Talk to a financial advisor. There are many creative ways to make a significant planned-giving bequest, and many of them have very attractive tax benefits. Whatever you give, do it gratefully.
