Thanks to all who have made a pledge toward our 2017 ministry. Congratulations to Nancy Adams, who completed her Passport during the campaign and won the drawing for the three-foot bench hand-crafted from one of FPC’s original pews!

Giving news

Charitable tax provision

Congress has passed a permanent charitable IRA tax provision in December of 2015. This change will permit people who are 70½ years of age and older to donate up to $100,000 to FPC (or another charity) directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts. These distributions will not be treated as taxable income. Depending on your circumstances, this could be an excellent way to fulfill campaign pledges, annual pledges, or to make a special year end gift to the ministries of First Presbyterian Church. Please consult with your tax advisor before making a final decision, but we wanted you to know that this provision is now permanent.
