Your Place to Give
Our Annual School Supply Drive helps GMES students start the school year off on the right note!
Christ Church has been in partnership with George Mason Elementary School for many years. We always love this time of year, when we can help these young learners in a tangible way. Your small gifts make a big impact! If you are able, please purchase school supplies using the list below and bring them to church by August 25.
Convenient Way to Make a Gift
If you are 70 1/2 or older, an IRA Rollover is a simple and easy way for you to use your IRA to help us fulfill our mission. You can transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA to your church or another charity this year without paying any federal income tax. Your gift can be made, simply by notifying your IRA plan custodian of your intent to make a current transfer to us, or another charitable organization. And you will feel good knowing that you were able to make a simple easy gift from your IRA this year.
