Giving

There are a variety of ways to give at St. Philip, whether it is of your time, your skills, or your income.

Donate!

Annual Giving

We do an annual giving campaign each year which helps us budget for the upcoming year.

Why pledge?

Pledges form the basis of our annual operating budget, but it’s not just about the money: it’s a yearly spiritual and financial commitment to supporting the ministries and work of St. Philip the Deacon. Making a pledge as opposed to making a weekly gift in the offering plate allows us to know we can count on your contribution as we budget for each year.

Pay your pledge

There are a variety of ways you can pay your pledge:

  • You can set up weekly or monthly payments through your bank account. Sending St. Philip a check via the “Bill Payment” feature of your bank account is free to you and St. Philip. To do this, simply add St. Philip as a Payee in your online bill payment service using our address (at the bottom of the page).
  • You can write a check and put it in the offering plate on Sunday. Note “Annual Giving” or “Annual Pledge” in the memo line.
  • You may give online. Online giving incurs a small transaction fee which is taken out of your gift. Please consider increasing the total amount to help us defray these fees. Here are the current fees:
    TypeAmount
    Credit/Debit Cards2.9% + $0.30/transaction
    Bank Transfer (ACH)1% + $0.25/transaction

If you would like to setup ‘Planned Giving’, use your IRA to offer your gift, or would like to contribute in some other form, please contact us.
