Memorial Gifts

The Memorial Gifts Committee receives requests for and donations to a restricted fund consisting of donations given in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving for a person or event. In recent years, the Committee has authorized funds to be used toward the belfry restoration, which is part of the Grace Restoration Campaign.


Planned Giving and Bequests

A Planned Gift is a gift made during one’s lifetime as part of a donor’s financial planning.

A Bequest is a gift made at death as part of a donor’s estate planning.

These may include the gift of an asset in lieu of cash, gifts that return income or other financial benefit to the donor in return for the contribution, and gifts payable upon the donor’s death. Such gifts have tax benefits.


Grace in Community Restoration Campaign

Grace Church has been nourishing generations of parishioners to serve the world in Jesus’ name, while also continuously reaching out to the larger community of which we are an integral part. Our church and parish house are the sacramental bricks and mortar of our shared ministry. They are outward and visible signs of God’s grace given to us and extended through us to others.

With hearts full of gratitude for what God continues to do through Grace for us and for Greater New Bedford, we embark on the second year of our “Grace in Community” campaign to address crucial building needs due to aging and wear. The campaign will allow us to complete necessary work on our tower and structural renovation of the church so that we might continue and even expand our ministry and collaboration with our surrounding community.
