All are Welcome!
Planned Giving Program Now Available at St. Luke’s
The Planned Giving Program has been in place two weeks and we have just received our first donation. The Planned Giving Program was created in response to Goal III-C of the Long Range Congregational Development Strategic Plan and the objective is to raise $500,000 for capital project and facility needs, as well as special ministries and outreach endeavors. A reminder: these monies do not go into the Operating Fund for regular expenses and are beyond your annual pledge. Currently, there are approximately $100,000 in the Capital Projects fund. A great start!
The emphasis of the Planned Giving Program is in estate planning through your will, trust or other methods. Special gifts in the present time are another way to support the Planned Giving Program. Click here for general information about Planned Giving and here for St. Luke’s Planned Giving Brief. Also, feel free to contact any of the Planned Giving Investment Committee members if you have specific questions. Co-chairs are John Empsall and Dave Parkinson, other committee members are Chris Jessen, Bill Skelton and Marc Wallace and ex-officio members are Fr. Pat Bell, Mike Dolan and Andy Storjohann.
We certainly do not expect to raise the funds overnight, rather we anticipate this will be an ongoing effort - low pressure with high visibility. You are invited to consider completing a Planned Giving Disclosure form and submitting it to the Planned Giving Committee. Rest assured, your information is kept strictly confidential.
