A Community of Welcome

Pledge Drive 2022


Help us be a Community of Welcome!

Getting to know you.  Getting to know each other. 

Our renewed focus at this time is to get to know you better

so we can share in one another’s joys and be supportive through life’s challenges. 

This isn’t a seasonal campaign for money, but an on-going shared generosity to support a real family.  

All Saints’ has many ministry teams that serve as Christ’s hands and  feet in Central Phoenix.

And as you know, mission and ministry, like families and businesses, require resources.

 

Our annual pledges affirm our parish and tell the world, “We believe in us”

and this enables the following:

 

beautiful Episcopal liturgy

through numerous Celebrations of the Holy Eucharist each week

for our church and day school community, and at outside residential communities

 

glorious music

created by several dedicated choirs

to enhance our common worship

 

livestream & online services

weekly Communion as well as daily Morning Prayer & Evening Prayer

 

on-going pastoral care

hospital visits + communion visits + home visits

intercessory prayer + prayer shawls for comfort

meaningful funeral services

The All Saints’ Stewardship Committee

Use Tax Deferred Accounts

for Your Pledge to All Saints’

 

Pay the remainder of your 2021 pledge or your 2022 pledge using tax savings strategies.

 

Retirement Accounts

 

If you have attained the age of 70 ½ when you must take a required minimum distribution (aka, RMD, in investor lingo) from your taxable retirement account(s), you may be able to benefit financially in two ways. You will not have to pay tax on the distribution as taxable income and you may avoid a Medicare-indexed surcharge if your income is higher than the maximum allowed.

 

If you would like to designate All Saints’ Episcopal Church as the recipient (or partial recipient) of this year’s RMD you should contact your financial advisor or the company that holds your retirement investments (such as Fidelity, Charles Schwab, Vanguard – there are many others). Then make a request to have the amount transferred directly from your account to All Saints’ via check. You will be required to provide the All Saints’ tax ID number which is 86-0133389 so they know funds are going to a tax-exempt organization. It is helpful to the church office if we know to look for a check issued on your behalf and to which pledge year it should be applied. We will notify you when it has arrived. You may want to set this up in November or early December so that checks are dated and mailed in a timely manner and received by December 31 because investment companies often get swamped with year-end requests.

 

When you turn age 70 ½, the IRS requires you to take a distribution or pay a 50 percent penalty of the RMD amount. Wouldn’t you prefer to decide how your retirement funds are used than leaving it to the IRS?

 

Gifts of Stock, Bonds or Mutual Funds

 

A second option for giving to All Saints’ is through a gift of individual company stock, bond, mutual fund or other investment that you may have bought or inherited and has increased in value through the years. When donated, you will receive credit in your giving statement for the current market value at the time the stock is transferred to All Saints’. Please contact the church office for the information you will need to give to your financial organization to effect the transfer. It takes three business days from the time the trade is initiated until it shows up in our account.

 

If you have questions, please call or email Barbara Anderson in the church office: banderson@allsaintsoncentral.org.
