Ways To Give

Weekly Envelopes

An easy means of giving and an excellent way to practice Stewardship. Using envelopes allows directed giving to both general and special collections throughout the year. A statement of contributions is sent to all envelope participants who have donated more than $250 at year-end. Please drop by the Pastoral Center to enroll and receive St. Lawrence envelopes by mail. Envelopes are mailed monthly, and may be returned via the US Mail to St. Lawrence.  You may also download the form here, and return it to us

 

Online Giving

St. Lawrence Martyr church has an ongoing program of online giving.  Using online giving allows you to make contributions from either your checking account or credit card. 

One of the great benefits of online giving is convenience.  Once you set up your account, you can decide how often to give – once a week, monthly, annually.  Once you sign up for online giving, you will no longer receive offertory envelopes at your home.

I invite you to consider online giving. This program already accounts for nearly 25% of our weekly collection. It is a great tool to financially support our parish and our many ministries.

Giving Securities

Stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares that have appreciated can be given to St. Lawrence and deducted from your taxes as a charitable contribution for the full market value at the time the gift is made. In addition, Capital Gains Tax is not payable on the appreciated value. Before making a securities gift, please consult your tax advisor for specific details relevant to your tax situation. Please notify the parish office in writing of your intention to donate securities in order to ensure proper accounting and acknowledgment.   We will provide you with the form to give to your broker.  Please contact Virginia Dargen for more information
