What is Christian Stewardship?
Christian Stewardship is using the gifts God has given us to do the work God is calling us to do. All that we have in this life is a gift from God: our time, our talent, our treasure. Part of being a good steward is giving back to God some of what we have been given, in loving gratitude for God's many gifts to us.
God calls us to share an abundant life that is marked by communion, communication and community.
As good stewards of God's gifts, we nurture and share them with the community as we work for the greater good.

Planned giving is a generous and effective way of making an intentional gift to The Riverside Church to ensure its future vibrancy.
It usually involves financial or estate planning; however it is not reserved for the wealthy. Planned giving is a means by which anyone concerned with the wise use of his or her personal resources makes a considered choice about their ultimate disposition.
Planned giving establishes a way for a donor to provide for family members while remembering the church as well. It often enables the donor to provide more for his or her heirs and to make a larger gift than thought possible. It often reduces taxes as well. You should consult with your financial advisor or attorney for guidance in determining the planned gift approach that is right for you and your family.
Planned gifts are usually made in one of several ways:
- A Bequest in a Will
- Designations of Retirement Plans or IRAs
- The Bequest of a Life Insurance Policy
- A gift plan that provides income to you
If you would like to explore these options, please contact Interim Director of Stewardship, Margery Whiteman at email@example.com , 212-870-6782.
You can take a leadership role at Riverside by making a major gift contribution, which is one way to help ensure that our core programs continue. In a time when so many have so little, we're asking those who can to give more.
