Annual Giving Campaign

We have received 632 pledges so far, with 63 new pledges.

We're 85% of the way to our goal! (updated 1/31/23)

Why pledge?

Pledges form the basis of our annual operating budget, but it's not just about the money: your pledge is a yearly spiritual & financial commitment to supporting our ongoing work.


Making a pledge rather than making a weekly gift in the offering plate lets us know that we can count on your contribution as we budget for the year.


You can fulfill your pledge over the course of the the year in 2023. There are a variety of payment schedules, so you'll be sure to find one that suits you - all the while knowing that your act of faith in the Trinity community sustains our operations and ministries! 

We're in this together.

It takes hundreds of individuals and families giving what they can out of a sense of commitment and gratitude to keep our work going. Not all of us can give as much as we’d like to, but each of us is committed to being a part of the mission – and together, we make Trinity happen.

Every dollar pledged directly supports the mission of this cathedral: to love & serve God, our people, and our neighbors in the Portland metro area and beyond.

Here are some examples what we can accomplish when we come together:

If 100 people gave:


$5 per month, that would cover coffee
$8 per month, that would cover newcomers & hospitality
$15 per month, that would cover janitorial & maintenance supplies
$25 per month, that would cover Spiritual Formation guest speakers
$40 per month, that would cover Chrismas & Easter musicians, weekly children's choirs, and soloists

$80 per month, that would cover utilities

$90 per month, that would cover Family Ministries staff & supplies

$115 per month, that would cover Sunday worship music, altar supplies & security

If 785 people gave:


$169 per month, we would achieve our goal!

How to pay your pledge:

You can set up weekly or monthly payments from your checking account

or by debit or credit card* online using the giving form below.

Or, if you prefer, download a pledge card and place it in the mail:

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral

147 NW 19th Ave.

*Did you know that credit cards cost Trinity much more to process? By giving through your checking or savings account, or by agreeing to offset the processing fee, everything you give directly will benefit Trinity!
