Welcome to the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church online contributions page.
St. Andrew's Presbyterian provides multiple ways for members and visitors to Live Generously through donating to the ministries of St. Andrew’s.
The goal of the current capital campaign is to pay for the recent renovation of the Warren Family Center and construction of a gathering area on the Rutgers street side of the church. The campaign plans to conclude the fund raising by the end of 2011 so that the Church will be debt free. Donations of check, money order, or stock to the Capital Campaign should be sent to the church office.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian can accept gifts of securities, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. These types of gifts can be positive for both the donor and the Church. Since St. Andrew's Presbyterian is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the gift will qualify as a charitable contribution and is tax deductible to the donor. The gifting of stock enables the donor to receive the full benefit of the security’s market value as a contribution, and avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated value.
Keep in mind that it is always a good idea to consult with a tax advisor on these matters prior to making your gift.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian maintains accountability for a variety of different gifts that result from the generosity of the church family and friends. An existing plan is in place to accept gifts of all sizes, administered by the trustees of the Church. To discuss your ideas on making a gift to St. Andrews, please contact the church office at (713) 667-1703 to speak with a pastor or trustee.
If there are any questions or concerns with your past or future donation, please contact either the Resources Chair or Maria Ibarra-Astorga (Pledges & Giving) at the Church office (713) 667-1703 x230.
St. Andrew’s conducts an annual stewardship campaign in the Fall of each year where members return cards to the Church office indicating their pledge for the following calendar year. The church depends to a large degree on these pledges to pay for its operating expenses of worship, ministries, benevolences and facilities. Members can increase or decrease their pledge by communicating with the church office.
