Planned Giving

There is no better way to support the future growth and strength of Central Congregational Church than with a planned gift … of any size.  Planned gifts can sustain church programs and facilities, add capacity, establish endowments, and launch new initiatives.  Plus, they offer an excellent return for relatively little cost or upfront investment.

There are many incentives for planned giving under current tax laws and many different options available.  We can help identify those that make sense for you and your family.  It is entirely possible to make a generous gift to Central and simultaneously obtain significant financial and estate-planning benefits.  For more information, contact Patrick Faulhaber, Senior Minister, at 401-331-1960 or
