Westminster has been a Telling Presence in the city of Minneapolis for more than 150 years. Generous members sustain the church through their tithes and offerings as expressions of their faith in God and in the mission of the church. Education, worship, music, art, evangelism, nurturing our youth, mission, and pastoral care are made possible with financial gifts to the church. You can contribute to Westminster in several ways:
Consistent with the philosophy that current members support current needs, pledge income provides nearly 80% of the revenue for the annual budget. Westminster invites all members to make regular commitments to the church by pledging each year, allowing the church to plan and manage most effectively. You are invited to consider taking steps toward the biblical tithe (10% of income). Click to make a pledge or to arrange a regular online contribution.
Many members and friends of Westminster extend their financial support in perpetuity to future generations through a Legacy Gift in their wills, trusts, or estate plans, or with other types of life income or outright gifts. All Legacy Gifts are invested in the Westminster Endowment, an important source of revenue for the operating and program budgets, and, by design, the sole source of revenue for the capital budget of the church. Because of Legacy Gifts, Westminster’s ability to fulfill its mission is greatly enhanced. Learn more here.
Special Offerings and One-Time Gifts
One-time gifts are welcomed from all, including those who choose not to pledge, or those who would like to make a gift beyond their annual pledge. Special offerings are received throughout the year, and are targeted towards ending hunger, responding to disasters, assisting our global partner churches, encouraging peacemaking and social justice, racial and ethnic education, and offering pension help for retired and active church workers and their families.
