Where does my money go beyond the church's operating expenses?
Receipts for donations by check, electronic giving, and cash (if given in an envelope with donor’s name) are provided each January for the prior year. If you give through another organization (eg Everence advised stock donations, or through employer matching programs), you can expect a tax receipt from that organization directly. Our Tax ID is 93-0550602.

Planning our giving through pledges...
Friends of Portland Mennonite Church,
One of the privileges of being a pastor is that I get to spend a lot of time in our meetinghouse. On Sundays and all through the week I get to see and hear, taste and touch, even smell, what all goes on here. I hope you sense the energy, faith, commitment, and hope of our congregation too.
I am grateful for all of your generous financial support that makes possible the many ministries of this church, both here in Portland and around the world. Right now our Leadership Table is making plans for 2024. To fully fund what we hope to do together will require an increase in giving of just under 3%. We encourage you to prayerfully consider what your giving will be in the coming year. Whatever you are able to give, it would be very helpful to hear from everyone by October 22. You can use this paper form, or the online pledge form, or contact our Treasurer, Melissa Burton, directly.
Thank you for your commitment to PMC,
