Giving

Grace Episcopal Church depends largely on donations from parishioners to maintain our programs and property.  Many of Grace’s parishioners dedicate their time as well; Our Parish Administrator and Treasurer are volunteers; we have a Buildings and Grounds group that helps to maintain our beautiful campus.

For those who consider themselves members of Grace, earmarking a certain amount of our overall income to help with church expenses, sometimes called “tithing,” is also a long-standing, biblically-mandated tradition.  We encourage everyone in our community to consider pledging time, talent, and treasure to our parish.

The church is blessed when someone remembers us in their will.  The ministry of our diocesan Gift Planning Officer is to provide information and counseling for those who wish to consider how they may best benefit their church as well as their family in their plans. If you are interested in remembering Grace Church in your will or estate plan, please let Rev. Deb know.  The diocesan gift planning officer may be contacted at plannedgiving@diocal.org or by calling (415) 869-7812.

Information about writing a will and other forms of estate planning can be found at www.EpiscopalGift.org.
