Churches, because of their heavy weekly check volumes, were among the earliest organizations to embrace electronic giving as a way to automate contributions. Today, electronic giving in all its forms provides convenience for frequent check writers and donation consistency for churches.
Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation. We anticipate that electronic giving will appeal to many church members – from longtime worshippers who will appreciate an alternative to frequent check writing to younger members and others who prefer to pay or donate by electronic means whenever possible.
On-line Giving lets you go to PHLC’s Simply Giving website to make one-time donations or to set up a schedule of automatic donations. By setting up a password-protected profile, you will be able to log in at any time to make donations, change a recurring donation plan or view your personal giving history. If you would like, click here to sign up for Electronic Giving. Otherwise, you can click here for a printable authorization form which you can bring to the church office, and we will set up your Simply Giving account.
Maintenance Endowment Fund
The Maintenance Endowment Fund was established in 1987. Its purpose is to provide for ongoing maintenance of the church facilities. Overseen by a committee of five Trustees elected by the congregation, the fund maintains a conservative investment policy intended to protect principal while regularly producing income that has been transferred annually to the church budget for maintenance purposes.
Choosing to support the Maintenance Endowment Fund is one of the best ways you can ensure that the congregation’s mission and vision will thrive for years to come. Gifts may be made in many ways; direct contributions, through a will or in memory or honor of another. Stocks, bonds and other forms of investments may be also accepted by the Trustees, in addition to customary cash donations.
Questions about the fund, or questions about contributing to the fund, may be directed to any of the Trustees:
– Bruce Bartlett
– Pat Bolster
– Randy Feger
– Tracy Greenholt
