Ways to Give - Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church

Parish Giving

Our Lady of Hope is a parish richly blessed with parishioners who give generously to support the many ministries and programs of our active parish. Your monetary gifts make a necessary and meaningful impact while contributing to the vibrancy and spirit of our community. Your support—no matter the amount—is vital to continue the work of our parish and its ministries.

E-giving with Faith Direct

Faith Direct

Sign up for electronic giving today. It’s safe, secure, and simple.

By using Faith Direct, our chosen e-giving provider, you help us save money, save paper, and save time. You also get to relax a bit more on Sunday mornings–since your offering is automatically transferred, hunting for that offertory envelope will be a thing of the past!

Faith Direct works directly with your bank, credit, or debit card in the same way as other electronic funds transfer payments you may already conduct (such as utility bills or your mortgage payment). All transactions are processed electronically, debiting your bank account or charging your credit\debit card automatically for the amounts you designate.

We also offer text-to-give! Just text the dollar amount you would like to give to 703-343-9211. Text-to-give is also supported by FaithDirect, so you know it’s safe, secure, and easy to manage. This is the perfect online option for those with varying incomes–you’re not tied to an automatic monthly withdrawal, so you can give with confidence, no matter your budget.

Use our Parish code, VA79, to enroll securely online.

Offertory Envelopes

Offertory Envelopes
New parishioners are automatically added to our envelope distribution list upon registration; however, they may take a few weeks to arrive. During this time, you make use a regular envelope with your name or parishioner ID number on it.

I haven’t received my envelopes
If you haven’t received the most recent offertory envelopes, one of two things may have happened.

From time to time, the packet of envelopes can get lost or damaged in the mail. Please call the Parish Office and let us know that you have not received your envelopes, and we will have the printers send you a new set. Since this may take a few weeks, you may use a regular envelope with your name or parishioner number on it while you wait for replacements to arrive.

We also update our distribution list annually, and remove those who have not used envelopes over the last year. If you believe you were removed from this list by mistake and would like to begin receiving envelopes again, please contact the Parish Office.

Matching Gifts

Many employers (or their charitable foundations) match donations made by their employees to charitable organizations dollar for dollar, sometimes even more. These are called Matching Gifts or Matching Funds. Some employers match gifts to religious organizations, but many do not; however, educational agencies like Our Lady of Hope Catholic School are usually eligible to receive matching gifts.

Do you know if your employer has such a program?  If you work for BAE Systems, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Cigna, Costco, Dominion Energy, ExxonMobile, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Home Depot, KPMG, Leidos, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Northrop Grumman, PWC, Red Hat, Starbucks, Symantec, or Verizon the answer is yes!  CLICK HERE  to see if your company is eligible or ask your company’s Human Resource Department. Be sure to let us know what you find out! This simple inquiry could double your impact without costing you one penny more.

If you have any questions, contact Pat Sabas in the parish office.

Stock and Mutual Funds

Our Lady of Hope gratefully accepts gifts of stock and mutual funds.  All such donations are handled by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington’s Finance Office.
