Annual Giving Pledge

We have a business plan, a life plan, and a financial plan, how about a contribution plan.

Why do we pledge?

Operations at the North Parish are 100% supported by contributions from members and friends. 

  • Some of those contributions are through volunteering – giving our time and talent to programs within the North Parish community, including fundraising activities.
  • The biggest portion of our revenue comes from the financial contributions we all make – the pledges received as an Annual Giving Pledge.
  • The biggest portion of our expenses necessary to support our mission goes to our amazing staff – their payroll and benefits.

Making an Annual Giving Pledge

Early each year our Stewardship Committee holds an Annual Giving Campaign, asking members and friends to pledge their financial support for the coming fiscal year (July 1-June 30). Your pledge indicates your plan to contribute. Our Treasurer, Board of Trustees, and Finance Committee tally the pledges received during that campaign, plus the anticipated revenues from Fundraising efforts, and use that amount to plan our Annual Budget – how we pay for our staff, care for our building, and offer the diverse array of programs offered to our congregation and the wider community. 

Annual giving is one of the many ways that you can provide financial support. Here are other options.
