Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a term that describes the thoughtful designation of a gift that will be made some time in the future, usually at the end of the donor’s life. At St. Peter’s, planned gifts help ensure that our values as a faith community will be preserved for the future.

Unlike contributions made through our annual stewardship campaign, planned gifts provide resources beyond what is needed to support our daily activities. These resources can be used to greatly enrich areas of ministry such as outreach or music, or to safeguard our future ability to maintain our historic physical property.

Planned gifts can be made in a wide variety of ways, and include gifts of various sizes which come to us through a range of contribution methods. These gifts work together to create a common legacy for all the members of our community who believe in the importance of our mission in the heart of Charlotte. Gifts that come to our parish through planned giving become part of the St. Peter’s Endowment, which was established in 1955.

The Planned Giving Committee was established in 2002 to increase the number of planned gifts to the St. Peter’s Endowment. The Endowment provides resources to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church by funding outreach grants from endowment income and by helping the church meet extraordinary parish needs. People who pledge a planned gift become members 1834 Legacy Society (named for the year Episcopalians first worshipped in Charlotte).

Planned Giving Committee members are Steve Bentley, Chairman; Kristin Bradberry; Abigail Cudabac; Irma Hoffman; Jim Shannonhouse; Bill Williamson.

I want to help build a legacy for St. Peter’s.
