St. Dunstan’s supports itself through the giving of its members and friends. Each fall we have an annual giving campaign to gather pledges (estimates of financial giving) for the coming year. These pledges support the majority of our operations, with a budget around $500,000. We receive no financial support from outside our parish.
Scripture teaches that our gifts and pledges should be a meaningful portion of our income…not an afterthought, or “what’s left” after everything else is paid for. It’s a challenge…a new way of thinking…but giving comes with marvelous joy and satisfaction as we move along the path.
Our theme for the 2019 Annual Giving Campaign is: "Lighting the Way Forward."
Each of us has a part to play in the future of St. Dunstan's. As we reflect on our congregation and choose a new rector, that support is essential. We want to move into 2019 in strength. The campaign will begin Sunday, October 21 and end with a festive brunch on Sunday, November 18. Information about our parish's ministries, our budget, and about pledging will be available in many forms. Parishioners will speak about their passion for ministries ranging from outreach and justice to worship and formation.
