  • There were 192 different pledges
  • Smallest Pledge = $39.25
  • Largest Pledge = $300,000.00
  • Average Pledge = $7,132.29
  • Over 160 pledges were for $10,000 0r less
  • There were 22 pledges of $10,000 or more.
  • There were 9 pledges for $25,000 or more.
  • The largest one-time cash gift was $125,000.
  • Stock in several different companies were donated to fulfill pledges. All stock was sold as soon as it was received and the funds were added to the building fund.
  • Property was donated to fulfill one pledge
  • Some contributed directly from an IRA through the Pension Protection Act of 2006
  • One interesting gift was 40 shares of stock from a company in Ohio. The stock is not publicly traded which made it somewhat complicated to sell. The Lord graciously provided a buyer who paid $400/share adding $16,000 to the capital campaign.
