Matching gifts can double, or even triple, your impact for the mission and ministry of the Covenant. Consult your Human Resources office to find out if your employer has a matching gift program and what steps are necessary to enroll in that program.

Types of Gifts
Your monthly support of the Evangelical Covenant Church provides regular and predictable funding for ECC ministry opportunities and projects that are transforming lives daily. It is an easy and affordable way for individuals to make their support go further both locally and globally. When you give monthly, you join a special group of people reaching out each month to provide prayer and support for the mission and ministry around the world.
MEMORIAL AND HONORARIUM GIFTS
A gift made in memory or in honor of a relative, friend, missionary or pastor is a thoughtful way to recognize an individual’s life and their service to God’s mission around the world.To make an honorary gift, send a letter indicating the purpose of your gift as well as the name and address of the honoree. For memorial gifts, if a memorial fund has not already been established, you should note on your check the name of the honoree and include the name and address of his/her next of kin so that we can properly notify their family of the gift.
