Fulfill Your Pledge With Tax Free Dollars

If you have an IRA, IRS rules allow you to make charitable contributions through your financial institution directly to your charities. Under the IRS program Qualified Charitable Distributions, these dollars count towards your Minimum Distribution Requirement but are not taxed as income. This could be a tax saving to you. Contact your financial institution for further information as not all retirement savings accounts are eligible.

Save Our Saviour: We thank those of you who have already donated and hope more of you can help preserve our precious church building. All contributions of any size are deeply appreciated. Bring or mail your donations to church or go online https://oursaviourplacerville.org/give to make your donation. In the memo line of your check or in the "Notes" box online be sure to write Building Fund.


S.HA.R.E.: We donate food to this ministry that provides for those in need in our community.  The S.H.A.R.E pantry is run primarily by Federated Church with organizations across our community donating food.   It is currently open three days a week.  Phyllis Smith will be taking in our donations on a regular basis.  Please bring your contributions of canned and packaged, easy to prepare, foods for the bin labeled S.HA.R.E.. If you are bringing canned goods, please bring those that open with pull tops if at all possible.

Recycling: Bring your CRV bottle and can recyclables to church.  Place them in the bins in the Robing Room (that area outside the Parish Hall bathroom).  Boyd Roberts will collect them and the funds from the returns go to the church.


Discretionary Fund: Rev. Debra maintains a Discretionary Fund that she can use to provide assistance as needed. She can provide emergency assistance for food, transportation, and help with medical bills. The Vestry provides some funding for this every year, but additional donations would expand what Rev. Debra can do during the year. Donations may be made to Church of Our Saviour, with "Discretionary Fund" in the memo line.
