How Much Should I Give?
St. Ann Catholic Church Restoration Campaign – Honoring our Past…Building our Future
As members of the St. Ann Roman Catholic Church, we are faced with a challenge that only together can be overcome. The projects which are planned for the restoration and renovation of the parish are important to each and every member of the St. Ann family. It is only by our generosity and reflection for a sacrificial commitment that we will be able to accomplish our objectives.
We have established a goal of $2,500,000 in order to put forth our projects. While this seems like a large amount, participation by all members of the parish family will not only make this goal attainable, but surpassable.
Suggested Gift Plans
In order to assist you in your consideration of a commitment to our appeal, we have listed a suggested gift plan. We understand that each individual or family has different financial obligations and abilities. Yet one of these plans should be within the means of most of the parish family. Please consider which plan best fits your budget, and this may be the best guideline for your commitment. Remember, this endeavor is based on equal sacrifice, not equal giving.
Note: If possible, your total pledge in one payment is encouraged as it will enable us to accelerate the restoration effort.
We are asking our entire parish family to consider any pledge amount. For example, a pledge of $3000 would be a sacrifice of a little more than $2 a day in order to ensure a promising future for St. Ann Church, and should not pose a burden for most parishioners.
For most, this amount comes to about what many parishioners pay each month for FiOS/cable television.
Please Consider a Special Commitment…
Some of us have been especially blessed by the Lord with material means. A heartfelt appeal is made to those parishioners to reflect on their ability to make a very generous pledge to the campaign. We ask that those who are capable of making pledges of $10,000, $20,000, $25,000 or more lay the foundation of success for this appeal.
• Your commitment contribution payments are made over a one, two or three year period.
• Your commitment to the St. Ann Catholic Church restoration campaign is in addition to your weekly stewardship contribution.
• Your financial commitment to this appeal will help ensure a strong future for the parish.
• Payment reminders and envelopes will be mailed according to your payment preference.
Tax Advantages of Thoughtful Giving
Federal and state laws on income and inheritance taxes encourage charitable giving. All annual contributions to the restoration fund are tax deductible for those who itemize their deductions.
• You may drop off your pledge at the parish office.
• You may also contact the Parish Center at (201) 659-1114
• You may drop off your pledge in the weekly collection basket.
Thanking you in advance for your consideration and generosity. Always remember that everything we are and have is a gift, given to us for only a short time. May God bless you all!
