The heart of the stewardship effort at St. Mark’s takes place every fall, when members, friends and newcomers are asked to make a pledge of financial support for the coming calendar year. St. Mark’s depends on donations to sustain its programs and facilities. The annual church operating budget is based on the sum of these pledges, and the number of programs that St. Mark’s is able to offer depends directly on our donors’ generosity.

How Pledging Works at St. Mark’s

A pledge is a promise to pay an amount to support St. Mark’s over a period of time, usually a calendar year.

A pledge payment is a donation made to fulfill all or part of a pledge. Parishioners can choose to make contributions toward their pledge weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually or in any installment plan that they wish.

A pledging member is a parishioner who has made a financial pledge. Pledging members are eligible to vote in leadership elections at our Annual Meeting in March and are eligible to be listed in the Parish Directory.
