Offering our Gifts
We joyfully give of ourselves, our time, and our possessions in thanksgiving for God’s abundant gifts and for the care and redemption of God’s creation. Reformation stewards our congregational finances and resources to give glory to God, serve our neighbors, and care for creation.
We invite you to support Reformation's ministries and help us open the doors of God's love to our neighborhood and nation. While we are not gathering in-person for worship, please mail your offerings to Reformation, 212 East Capitol Street NE, Washington, DC 20003. You can also use the online giving portal.
The Simply Giving® Program is an automated stewardship program that helps members live generously. It's a convenient, safe, and simple way for individuals to make automatic payments to nonprofit organizations through electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from checking or savings accounts.

Set up an online donation, either one-time, weekly, or monthly through the Simply Giving Vanco online donation portal:
Reformation works with the ELCA Foundation and the InFaith Foundation to help our members and friends make planned gifts through bequests, stocks, IRA rollovers (for people 70 ½ or older), and life insurance plans (people in their 30’s and 40’s often use this option). Please email or call Alice Benson, ELCA Foundation regional gift planner, 301-963-6570. Or contact the InFaith Foundation at 800-365-4172. Contact with these gift planners costs you nothing--and is confidential. Reformation is informed only by you or by the foundation at your direction.
