Planned Giving

Are you interested in securing your church’s future?

Congregational Resources

We are happy to help as you explore planned gifts for our churches, related organizations and the Diocese of Virginia.

The diocesan planned giving website includes resources for individuals interested in exploring gift options from the privacy of their own home. Planned gift calculators can provide illustrations for gift annuities, annuity trusts, deferred gift annuities, etc. And don’t forget to subscribe to our planned giving e-newsletter

Another excellent resource is The Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF). Their webinars, along with Planned Giving On-Demand, are a great place to begin. These webinars from the ECF cover the basics and will give you much of the information you’ll need to get started.

ECF also has fantastic brochures for congregations to use. They are available to download for free or you can purchase them through Forward Movement.

To have a conversation about meeting your church’s current and future needs, please feel free to contact Stephanie Gurnsey Higgins:, schedule a phone call, or call 800-DIOCESE X1031.
