Support Our Work
Incarnation is grateful for your monetary support of our ministry, particularly during these challenging times.
We have pledged to continue paying our staff as long as possible during the COVID crisis, to support our members in crisis as much as we can, and to continue being mindful both of the future and any current needs our physical building and grounds may have, even as we are unable to gather in them for the foreseeable future.
Ways to Give
During the COVID crisis, this method is one of the best ways to significantly reduce contact between individuals because it is handled electronically. Click the button below to go directly to PayPal to make your gift online.
We are accepting donations to the following funds via PayPal:
The General Fund: This fund pays our staff and takes care of the other necessities (postage, website, utilities) that nurture our collective life.
COVID-19 Response Fund: A special fund to support members of the ECI community who are in crisis because of the COVID pandemic, either directly as a health issue or indirectly due to job loss or other economic hardship.
Building & Grounds: This fund pays for repairs and maintenance of our building and grounds and is sometimes used for special projects related to our physical space, for example the recent purchase of a dishwasher to allow us to significantly reduce our use of paper and plastic during after-church social hours and other events.
Carbon Footprint/Solar Project: Before the COVID crisis began, the ECI community put together a proposal to reduce our carbon footprint by upgrading our building’s insulation and installing both solar and a geo-thermal system. We can’t let the current health crisis cause us to forget the climate crisis — and as soon as conditions permit, we hope to complete this project.
Note: If you want to give for a specific purpose not listed above, you can still give online! Just make your donation to the general fund and then email our bookkeeper, Tasha Pohrt, at email@example.com with the date of your donation, amount, and how you would like us to use it.
