2020 Per Capita is $37.75 Per Member
Each member of Covenant is also a member of the larger church, the Presbyterian Church USA. As such, it is part of our responsibility to support the work of the administrative bodies of the national church – the General Assembly, the Synod, and the Presbytery. The per capita for 2020 is $37.75 per member. We invite you to pay your share of the per capita so that this money does not need to come from this year’s budget which frees up funds for other vital church programs. Per Capita envelopes are on the Welcome Table. Contact Ingrid Smith.
If you are 70-1/2 years or older, have you thought about taking advantage of the IRA Charitable Rollover provision and making a pledge from your IRA? This provision allows you to make an outright gift directly from your IRA to a qualified charity (Covenant) without paying tax on the distribution. This is an excellent way to use your IRA dollars. One hundred percent of your gift goes to Covenant, and you pay zero percent tax on your distribution from your IRA.
Giving stock through your investment broker allows you to maximize your tax deductions. Please contact Ingrid Smith in the Finance Office for stock transfer instructions.
