Covid-19 and our programming

A faith-based response to epidemics or large scale outbreaks of infectious diseases, such as Covid-19, remind us to maintain consistency in our spiritual lives, to be compassionate to those affected, and to work hard at diffusing general fears with truth and knowledge. During this time, we will be offering prayers and worship services via Facebook Live. You can watch them at their appointed times, or later on Facebook after they are posted, or on our YouTube channel.

Online Giving

It is easy and convenient to give online. Click ONLINE GIVING to begin.

Sunday Offering

Offerings are taken at all worship services. Simply place your cash or check in an offering envelope and drop it in the offering plate when it is passed during worship. Be sure to include your name and address on the envelope or check, so that we can credit your account properly. We also now offer text giving. Please see below for more information on text giving.

Text Giving

Please use text giving for one-time contributions to the plate (general fund). Because of higher fees associated with text giving, we encourage pledgers and regular members of the congregation to continue to give via check or through our existing ONLINE GIVING platform.

Simply send a text message to 855-966-3394 with the amount you would like to contribute (example: 20). Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and debit or card information. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt of your donation via email. Registration is necessary only for the first payment. See video below for complete instructions.

Donate by Mail

If you would like to mail your contribution, please make your check payable to: St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 79 Denton Road, Wellesley, MA 02482

Online Banking

Online banking allows donations to be drawn regularly from your bank account. Just as you pay for many of your bills, you may sign up for an automatic bank draft from your checking or savings account. Please be sure to include your pledge number in the memo line. Please contact Joanne Butler if you need your pledge number or have any questions.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities such as shares of stock, mutual fund units, bonds or other securities offer significant tax advantages and are easy to make. Generally, contributions of appreciated securities held for more than one year are deductible at fair market value for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and do not trigger any capital gains taxes on the appreciation. Additional information about gifts of securities can be downloaded here. Please contact Joanne Butler for questions and assistance.

Making a Planned Gift

St. Andrew’s benefits greatly from planned gifts made by parishioners through a will or trust agreement. Many members of our community have already planned gifts to help assure the future well-being of St. Andrew’s beyond their lifetime through the St. Andrew’s Legacy Society. We are deeply grateful for your generosity. Please contact Joanne Butler for questions and assistance.
