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. To make a pledge to the church, please click here.
