NACCC Shared Ministries Giving

Member churches, individual donors, and associations committed to Congregationalism can provide a financial contribution to the overall operations and programming of the NACCC through the Shared Ministries Fund (SMF). Each member church is required to make an annual contribution to SMF, which directly supports the NACCC operations, programs, resources, and services. We ask that churches prayerfully give at their “Fair Share” level or above ($13 per member annually). Member church donations assure the continuation of educational programs, church resources, fellowship opportunities, and administrative support that churches and their members find so valuable.

Leave a Legacy Through Planned Giving

A Planned Gift is any major gift made to a non-profit, in a person’s lifetime or at death that is part of the donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Estate and gift planning incorporates many different kinds of financial and tax benefits. By making a planned gift or bequest to the National Association or the Congregational Foundation you are helping to insure its ongoing health and future success.

The 1620 Society

The 1620 Society was created to recognize donors who have already made the decision to leave a legacy through their estate and gift planning. We hope you will consider joining them.

Wills and bequests provide a simple way to make a gift that will keep on giving after your lifetime. Designating the charity in a life insurance policy or retirement account is commonly used. A life Insurance Policy that is no longer needed for family protection or is specifically purchased to benefit the organization can be donated during your lifetime and will benefit the organization upon your death. Declaring a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate to go to a charity is also used.
