A pledge to the Operating Fund isn’t about keeping on the lights – the Operating Fund is what keeps the church ministering to you and to your community on a daily basis. And it’s all made possible by you. Making a pledge to the Operating Fund or a onetime gift is a decision that will bless the church and beyond.
God has called many friends and members of the church to support this important tool for long-term growth. We hope you will pray for the future of your church, and we hope you will consider making a one-time gift or a pledge to the Building Fund.
Gift of Securities
Appreciated Securities make a fantastic gift to the Operating Fund or the Building Fund. You may be eligible to take advantage of a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift.

Gift of Real Estate
If you owned your home, a vacation home, acreage, or a farm for many years, a charitable gift of that real estate can be especially tax-advantageous. The property may have so appreciated in value over the years that its sale would result in a sizable capital gains tax. If given to the church, you avoid the capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the real estate. It also removes this large asset from your taxable estate. If you would like more information on generosity planning, click here.
Gift of Life Insurance
If you own a life insurance policy that is no longer needed, it could be the perfect gift vehicle for a year-end charitable gift. You can contribute a life insurance policy either by declaring Emmanuel Anglican Church as the owner of the policy or simply the beneficiary. It’s easy to contribute a life insurance policy – just check with your life insurance agent for details on which forms to complete.

Gift of Individual Retirement Accounts
The church or one of its institutions can be designated as the beneficiary of all or a portion of a retirement account at death. A gift of this type provides an estate tax charitable deduction for the value of the amount distributed to the church or one of its institutions. It also provides important benefits by limiting the tax on income in respect of a decedent. If you would like more information on generosity planning, click here.
Planned giving is a term used to describe a variety of ways that gifts can be made to the church from accumulated resources. Usually, planned giving involves financial or estate planning. Those who make planned gifts to the church and notify the church will become members of the Emmanuel Legacy Society (ELS). Members of the ELS help to establish and sustain vital ministries, including: the purchase of real estate for a new cathedral campus, funding capital improvements to our future campus, establishing an endowment, funding other church plants in the diocese, providing numerous grants for missions and outreach, and much more.
