Download the Giving Chart to help guide your decisions.
How to use the Chart:
Step One: Figure your income for the past month.
Step Two: Find the intersection of your monthly income and your percentage of giving to discover your monthly contribution.
Step Three: Divide the amount by four if you will be making your gift weekly:
(i.e. $4,000 monthly income, 7% gift, $280 monthly gift, $70 weekly contribution)
If you make a decision to increase your giving by one percent next year, take the following steps:
- Locate your monthly income in the left column.
- Move to the right in that row until you come to the amount you give per month.
- Move one more box to the right.
- The amount noted in that box includes a one percent increase over what you are now giving.
