For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 1 Timothy 6:7-8


Pledges of annual financial giving not only help us plan our church budget, but are a sign that we recognize that God is the source of all that we have. We understand commitments to giving as an important spiritual practice of Christian discipleship.


To complete your pledge to St. Stephen’s, please fill out the form below and click send. If you would rather submit a paper pledge card you can mail in the pledge card sent to you or request one from the church office at


Either way your pledge will remain confidential and only those who track giving will have this information.


Thank you for helping us make a difference!


The Vestry has established a planned giving program to provide us with the opportunity to strengthen the church's existing memorial and endowment funds and help ensure the vitality and permanence of St. Stephen’s and its programs.

Making a gift is a very personal matter. Some of the more common ways in which you may provide a gift to St. Stephen’s as part of your estate planning are:

  • A specific bequest under your will or a distribution under a trust.

  • A contingent bequest of distribution from your estate.

  • Proceeds of a life insurance policy.

  • Establishment of a charitable remainder trust or other split interest arrangement.

By including St. Stephen’s in your estate plan, you become a member of the Society, playing a role in the Parish’s future and remaining a part of its history. As you consider how to include St. Stephen’s in your estate plan, or other end-of-life issues, we invite you to contact Maria Hjelm, Sr. Warden, on a confidential basis (
