Annual Giving / Pledges
Pledged financial commitments to Trinity Wilmette directly determine what is possible for us to do through mission and service, education and discipleship, and worship and music. Giving annually to the church is one of the ways we express what it means to be part of this faith community. By our generosity, we express our gratitude for what God is doing in our own lives and in the world.
Legacy gifts ensure the continued vitality of Trinity Wilmette from one generation to the next. These gifts bring a sense of purpose and fulfillment to the giver while also providing other benefits, such as tax savings. Legacy gifts are not just for those who have wealth or special financial expertise, they are for anyone with a generous spirit who wants to designate their giving while they are living. We are grateful for those who have gone before us who gave us gifts to invest in the ministries of Trinity Wilmette into the future.

- Will or Trust
- Retirement Assets
- Life Insurance Policy (with Trinity Wilmette named as beneficiary)
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Charitable Lead Trust
- Donor-Advised Fund
