Giving

Guide to proportional giving

Giving proportionately means offering a percentage of your income. We suggest you begin your stewardship journey where you are able, and aim to increase that percentage each year. If giving 10% seems daunting, please consider starting with a pledge of just 2% of your income. For an estimate of what your pledge would be, here is a chart showing proportional giving at various income levels and percentages:

Annual Gross Income 2% 4% 6%
$10,000 $200 $400 $600
$20,000 $400 $800 $1,200
$30,000 $600 $1,200 $1,800
$40,000 $800 $1,600 $2,400
$50,000 $1,000 $2,000 $3,000
$75,000 $1,500 $3,000 $4,500
$100,000 $2,000 $4,000 $6,000
$150,000 $3,000 $6,000 $9,000
$200,000 $4,000 $8,000 $12,000
