Ways to Give

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. 1 Peter 4:10

All that we have and all that we are comes from a God who loves us.

As such, we recognize our roles as stewards who are accountable to God. Sharing of our “first fruits” is the response of mature Christian Disciples who choose to “return to the Lord with increase” the blessings that God bestows.

At St. John Vianney, we encourage our members to make a planned, proportionate and prayerful commitment to praise God through the sharing of our first fruits. We have the ability to support online giving and text-to-give through Faith Direct . We bring these gifts forward at every Mass as an expression of our gratitude. Every November, we renew these commitments together as a community through our annual Stewardship Renewal Campaign.

You’ll find a variety of resources and information on various forms of financial stewardship. If more information or assistance would be helpful, please email Angela Bravata, our Director of Stewardship & Communications, or call 262-796-3947.

  • Future Planned Giving

    Planned giving represents a conscious decision on the part of the donor to recognize the blessings one has received from God and to give back in gratitude to further the mission and growth of the Church, through Saint John Vianney Parish.

    From a practical perspective, a planned gift is a charitable contribution that takes into account the donor’s personal tax, financial and estate circumstances and goals. Planned giving can be a creative tool for making a special financial contribution to Saint John Vianney, while maximizing tax and related benefits for the donor and his or her heirs.

  • Year End Gift

    As the end of the year approaches, we reflect upon the many blessings bestowed upon us.

    We have a great opportunity to thank God for all he has done for us this past year and throughout our lives.

    It is also a good time to consider how we might give back some of our assets to Him through His Church with a special year-end gift of cash or appreciated assets such as shares of stock or other investments.
