Other Forms of Stewardship at Trinity
Pledge: You may make an annual pledge to support the Church’s overall operating budget. Making your pledge and scheduling payments allows Trinity to confirm its annual operating budget. Funds from pledging help Trinity maintain the Church building, administer the parish, and provide for the Church’s many programs and outreach ministries. Because a pledge to Trinity is not a legally binding contract, payment may be made through most donor-advised funds as an alternate to paying by check or online. To arrange or modify a pledge, contact Business Manager at (203) 776-2606 or email Business Manager.
Partnership: Another way to contribute to the operating budget is through an annual designated donation to a particular need at Trinity, either separate from or in addition to pledging. You may make a one-time contribution or schedule periodic payments. Many of Trinity’s partners are friends of the church who do not identify themselves as members, but value and provide critical support to the music program or one of our outreach ministries. To arrange or modify a partnership, contact Business Manager at (203) 776-2606 or email Business Manager.
Gifts to Trinity’s Endowment: Contributing cash, appreciated equities, or other assets to Trinity’s endowment—either now or as legacy gift through your estate planning— is another important form of stewardship. Endowment income allows Trinity to plan for large expenses, mostly related to our building, our choir programs, and our outreach ministries. A healthy, growing endowment is critical to ensuring Trinity’s fiscal health today and for future generations.
