Can I give property or stocks to Redeemer?
Yes. Redeemer's Finance Office can assist you in making such gifts. Gifts of physical objects or real estate must be approved by the Vestry before they can be accepted. For assistance, contact Darlene Gilchrist in the Finance Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (410) 435-7333, ext. 236.
Can I make gifts to specific funds at The Church of the Redeemer?
