Planned Giving is an opportunity for each of us to commit to our parish and determine the level of financial support.
Why planned giving?
Planned giving supports everything we do as a parish including
- Maintenance of parish property & buildings
- Support of the clergy
- Contribution to Diocesan appeals
- Liturgical and sacramental expenses
Planned giving allows a parish to budget for its present and future needs with some certainty.
Who should give?
All parishioners have a responsibility to support their parish. The parish depends entirely on the generosity of its parishioners. It is important that new parishioners are included in this important aspect of parish life.
Get 33% of your donation back as a tax credit. Rebates on all donations can be claimed back from IRD. $1,000 donated means a rebate of $330. An annual receipt is issued by the pledge administrator confirming you have made an identifiable gift such as through the planned giving programme.
Please download the following information, complete form on how you want to pledge and scan then email to the parish, bring it to the parish office or you can put in the collection basket during offertory.
