Grace Brooklyn Heights Conservancy
The Grace Brooklyn Heights Conservancy was established in 2012 to support the restoration of the historic buildings of Grace Church. As a separate tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, the Conservancy is able to receive contributions from organizations that could not otherwise support religious institutions. These organizations may include employer matching gift programs, and private or public organizations that provide grants to preserve historic buildings. The Conservancy directs gifts and grant funds toward those capital projects approved by the Vestry.
To make a gift to the Conservancy, make out your check to “Grace Brooklyn Heights Conservancy, Inc.” and place it in the offering plate, or mail it to the church at 254 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201.
Matching Gifts to the Conservancy
We are grateful to those parishioners who are able to enhance their personal donations through their employers’ matching grants program. Please obtain an application form from your employer, and let us know if you need supporting documents or information from the Conservancy. Please instruct your employer to make out the check to “Grace Brooklyn Heights Conservancy, Inc.” and mail it to Grace Church Brooklyn Heights, at 254 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, New York 11201.
Bequests and Planned Giving
“Where there is no vision the people perish.” —Proverbs 29:18
Honor the Past, Sustain the Present, Nurture the Future.
For more than a century and a half, Grace Church has served the Brooklyn community and conducted outreach activities around the world. During that time, many individuals have expressed their gratitude to the church and to God by remembering Grace Church in their long-term financial planning. These bequests or deferred gifts have played an important role in the life and work of this parish and will continue to do so in the future.
The Grace Church Legacy Society was established in 2008 to celebrate the 160th anniversary of the dedication of Grace Church Brooklyn Heights and to honor those who include Grace Church in their estate plans or make a gift to the endowment during their lives. See our Legacy Society brochure and enrollment form.
To join the Legacy Society, please notify the Rev. Anne F.C. Richards that Grace has been named in your will or that you have planned another type of deferred gift, or that you intend to.
