Pledging at St. Paul’s on the Green
In the Episcopal Church, making a commitment of regular giving to a parish is known as a “pledge.” Annual contributions of every size are always welcome and appreciated, and we are grateful to each member of our parish who commits to supporting St. Paul’s. Pledges can be made on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual basis, and can take the form of cash, checks, a credit card charge, or automatic debit from a bank account. Your pledge commitment can be amended at any time by reaching out to us, should your financial circumstances change.
To sign up for your 2020 pledge, click here.

Other types of giving
All are invited during services at St. Paul’s to contribute to an offering taken during the liturgy. Cash and checks are welcome and accepted. Checks should be written to “St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.”
During a time of sheltering-in-place and social distancing, mail to St. Paul’s is still checked regularly. Checks may safely be mailed to the Parish Office: St. Paul’s on the Green, 60 East Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06851.

Recurring electronic donations can take the form of a credit card charge or an automatic direct debit from a bank account. If you would like to learn more about a form of regular giving known as a “pledge,” see the paragraph above, or contact our Treasurer.
For one-time donations, you may also simply text the amount of your donation to 855-934-1074 to initiate giving through the St. Paul’s Text-to-Give program. You will receive a text message reply with further instructions. Your giving through Text-to-Give is secure and safe!
Gift of appreciated securities
Securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use when making a gift to St. Paul’s on the Green. When donating appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year to us in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer.
You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. With questions about giving appreciated securities, please contact the St. Paul’s Treasurer.
