St. Alban's Annual Stewardship: Online Pledge Card
A pledge is a financial commitment made in faith, after prayer and discernment, to give a specific amount to the church's annual operating budget. This form allows you to submit your pledge online.

When you make a financial pledge to St. Alban's, it allows you to practice the spiritual discipline of stewardship and it allows the vestry to do the same as they prayerfully plan our budget for ministry and mission.

This form allows you to use the amount of your annual pledge. This form is not for submitting actual payments. To make a payment towards your pledge, you can do so in the offering plate on Sunday, mailing or dropping off a check at the church office, or by using our secure online giving portal at stalbanswaco.org/give.

Planned Giving
The Book of Common Prayer directs that all Christians have a duty "to make wills, while they are in health, arranging for the disposal of their temporal goods, not neglecting, if they are able, to leave bequests for religious and charitable uses" (BCP p. 445).

St. Alban's members may include the following St. Alban's Funds in their estate planning:

1. The Endowment Fund (for the long-term sustainability of St. Alban's mission and ministry)
2. Our One Foundation (Phase 1 of the campus Master Plan: the Parish Hall and Welcome Center)
3. Renew & Restore (Phase 2 of the campus Master Plan: The Church and Organ)
4. The Memorial Fund (Covers materials used in worship)
5. The Organ Fund (for ongoing organ maintenance)

They may also leave an undesignated bequest for the vestry to apply to the church's needs. The vestry invites all St. Alban's members to prayerfully consider a planned gift to the parish.
