You Will Be My Witness

Give

We give as stewards of God’s gifts to us. In addition to donations of time and services which you can learn about at this link, your monetary gifts to Epiphany enable us to continue to provide a venue, teachings, music, and opportunities for community and transformation in ways that bring more love, joy, and peace into your life and our shared world.

Annual Appeal Pledge Drive

Take inventory of what is important to you; assess what God is doing in your life; count your blessings; then, in response to this discernment, give in proportion to what God has done and is doing in your life. Be wildly generous if you can, but at the very least, be faithful in reflecting your connection to the important work that happens at your church. Every single pledge matters.

How to Give

There are many ways to share your blessings with Epiphany. The easiest way to manage and monitor your giving is through Realm, the church management software that Epiphany uses to administer both financial and ministerial activities. Once you create your profile in Realm, you can routinely give through your bank account or credit card. If you haven’t already signed up for Realm, click here to join.

Pay by Check/ACH

The best way to pay your pledge is by transferring money from your bank account to Epiphany using ACH, the Automated Clearing House, which is also used to enable payroll deposits, Medicare payments, etc.  Once this is set up, your pledge payments will be automatically transferred from your bank to the church on a date and amount of your choosing.  Not only is this convenient for you but is a benefit to the church as well. Contributions and pledge payments may always be mailed to the church or left in the offering plate with the intent noted in the memo line.

Securities

When you give appreciated stock directly to Epiphany, it helps Epiphany and may also be beneficial as you are credited with the full market value on the day of the gift.  For assistance with this transfer to Epiphany’s account contact Pam Demian, Epiphany Business Manager/Accountant,  pdemian@epiphanyseattle.org

IRA Contributions

Depending on you age, you may be able to make a contribution to Epiphany directly from your IRA.  In doing so, you do not pay tax on the withdrawal nor do you get tax credit for charitable giving.  For assistance, Contact Pam Demian, Epiphany Business Manager/Accountant at pdemian@epiphanyseattle.org.

Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

One means of charitable giving is to contribute to a Donor-Advised Fund.  Such a contribution, may provide a tax advantage to the donor.  Overtime, the donor may then indicate distribution by the DAF to various eligible charities.  Contact Epiphany Business Manager/Accountant Pam Demian at pdemian@epiphanyseattle.org for assistance.

Bequests

Please consider Epiphany with a bequest in your will. You also may wish to consider a Charitable Remainder Trust, which allows you to continue to draw income from securities which have been bequeathed to the Church. See your financial advisor to discuss whether this approach makes sense for you. If you would like to discuss a bequest with someone at Epiphany, please contact Contact Epiphany Business Manager/Accountant Pam Demian at pdemian@epiphanyseattle.org
