Your donations support everything that TUCW does. Click here or above image to make a donation. Thank you for your non-pledge donation!
Other ways to donate include regular checks, as well as your bank’s online bill pay system; please speak with your bank on how to get started with online banking. Also you can donate stock as well as recommend grants from your donor-advised fund, charitable trust or private foundation. Email Dorothy or Sue to let us know that you are the donor of the specific stock and to get the wiring instructions for your broker.
You can also make a pledge or a commitment to give in the future. Pledging is for those who find it easy to plan ahead financially many months into the future. A pledge made in the springtime is your estimate of what you are committing to give for the coming fiscal year — July to June of the following year. You must make a pledge before you can contribute to it. But of course, you can donate separately from your pledge too – both non-pledge and pledge donations are welcome!
The Stewards gather pledges or commitments in the springtime to cover the following fiscal year. The purpose of pledging is to give us an indication of the minimum we can count on for the budget for the upcoming year. All pledge contributions are unrestricted general funds. A pledge must be made for each fiscal year in documentable form. This means on the pledge card that Stewards hand out, by email to Dorothy or Sue or if you set a recurring giving schedule in Realm, we will use the total amount that you have scheduled for those future months. If you need to change your pledge after you have submitted one, please email Dorothy.
How to contribute to your pledge:
• You can contribute to your pledge in whatever pattern works for you, monthly, or once a year or anything in between. Just make sure you’ve completed your pledge by June. If your pledge is not fulfilled at the end of June, the subsequent contributions will be applied to that prior year’s pledge until it is fulfilled before moving onto the next pledge.
• When using checks, or online bank bill-pay systems, please enter “pledge” in the appropriate memo line.
• Realm Online Giving is the only credit card payment method that will connect to your pledge. If you want to donate to your pledge using a credit card or eChecks, you must enter the credit card/eCheck information in your Realm profile yourself; the office is not allowed to. For more on online giving, download the Realm online giving FAQ. Please be aware that other giving methods, like the donate click through above, or other future technologies do not always allow us to connect your gift to a pledge.
Making a provision for TUCW in your will or estate plans is a wonderful way to build for the future. In addition to a bequest through your will, you may wish to make TUCW a beneficiary of your IRA, your 401k or other retirement plan, life insurance policy or annuity or other estate trust. Please do let us know that you have designated TUCW as a beneficiary so that it all goes smoothly in the future.
The Legacy Society is made up of those who have stepped forward to make this special commitment to the next generation. Contact the church office to reach the Legacy Society leaders.
