The Virginia Plan for Covenantal Giving
In 2021, the diocesan Annual Convention adopted the Virginia Plan for Covenantal Giving. It provides for a three-year transition from the previous proportional giving plan to the Virginia Plan for Covenantal Giving.
In preparation for 2024 pledges, all churches in the Diocese received a communication from the diocesan Treasurer's Office. Each church's letter outlined three years of parish income based upon Line 3 of its parochial reports for 2020, 2021, and 2022. The letters also provided the average of those three years' income, along with the parish's proposed contribution to the Diocese based upon 9% of that average. Clergy and wardens: If you need a copy of your church's letter, contact diocesan Treasurer Ted Smith.
June 17 Group Meetings
If your church is unable to meet or exceed the 9% contribution for your 2024 diocesan pledge, please plan to attend one of the area gatherings, to be hosted by the diocesan Executive Board on Saturday, June 17, to request an adjustment to your pledge. In preparation for that meeting, please fill out the registration form (linked above) so that we may best plan for your attendance.
There will be four meetings on June 17, 2023, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. The four locations are:
The Falls Church, Falls Church
St. James, Warrenton
Christ Church, Glen Allen
