Yes. We routinely have a number of members who pay their new pledges before the end of the calendar year. For tax purposes, any donation to the church paid before December 31, 2020 is considered a charitable contribution for tax year 2020. For church record keeping purposes, pre-paid pledges are credited toward the appropriate pledge year. In other words, if you make a pledge for 2021 during this fall’s campaign and indicate you would like to pay part or all of that pledge before the end of this calendar year, you will be credited with partial or complete payment of your 2021 pledge.
