Gifts from Faith Communities
Many churches, denominations and faith agencies support the Church Council because of the role we play as a regional ecumenical council. If you are interested in encouraging your church to make a donation, we can support your efforts as you inquire with your mission board, pastor’s discretionary fund or special projects team.
Please contact us directly to make a gift through an electronic stock transfer. Our accountant Janet Deters can help you arrange this. Contact Janet at (206) 525-1213, ext 104 or email Janet.
My life’s work has been dedicated to trying to build a more just world with my fellow Christians and others committed to social justice. It simply makes sense to continue that work after I’m gone. That’s why the Church Council of Greater Seattle is in my will. – The Rev. David Bloom, former Associate Director, Church Council of Greater Seattle
A gift of tomorrow…
Through your estate plans you can ensure that our mission of unity, compassion, and social justice continues on for future generations. Planned giving offers many ways to support, and it is possible for anyone, regardless of their means. We hope you will consider giving a gift to the Church Council of Greater Seattle that will live on through the years.
A bequest in your will is the most common planned gift but there are other options as well. Some of those options are a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. You might also name this cause as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy or retirement account.
We’re here to make this process as easy as possible for you. For questions or more information, contact Cinda Stenger at email@example.com or by phone (206) 204-3853.
