Members should contribute what they are comfortable with.

Some members pledge to organizations that speak to their heart in addition to the Beacon congregation based on their income level.  Whether you pledge to other charities or just to Beacon, no one is expected to contribute beyond their comfort level.

Here are examples of pledge amounts based on a percentage of income levels:

              Income % Pledge $25,000 $50,000 $75,000 $100,000
3% $750 $1,500 $2,250 $3,000
5% $1,250 $2,500 $3,750 $5,000
10% $2,500 $5,000 $7,500 $10,000

There is no required pledge amount, some members are able to pledge more, and others pledge less.  We believe that this is an equitable way for people of differing financial means to be stewards of our congregation and we encourage those who are able, to do more.

Recent pledges by Beacon members and friends have averaged around $1,500 per donor.
