St. Bart’s is a place that offers comfort and nourishment. We are, first and foremost, a spiritual home, but we also provide comprehensive services to those in need, creative and educational programs for adults, youth, and families, and a lively forum for arts, culture, and social interaction. Your thoughtful gifts allow us to continue this vital work for the benefit of this landmark New York City institution.
There are a myriad of ways that you can support St. Bart’s. For more information about each individual fund, please see below, or to donate now to any of these initiatives, please click here.
The Annual Stewardship Campaign
The annual Stewardship Campaign funds more than 60% of the Church’s operating budget; it keeps the doors of this remarkable place open 365 days a year. By donating to the annual Stewardship Campaign you allow for us to continue our vital programs and ministries. To learn more about the Stewardship Campaign, including how to declare a pledge, please visit our Stewardship page.
The Mosaic Society was formed in 1997 as a way to recognize members and friends who have included St. Bart’s in their estate plans. Membership in to the Mosaic Society has grown each year, as more people recognize the importance of providing future support for St. Bart’s. Unless otherwise stated, legacy gifts support the growth of St. Bart’s endowment, which is critical to St. Bart’s long-term success and the continued preservation of our landmark building.

Funding Capital Needs
In 2014 St. Bart’s publicly launched a highly-directed Capital Campaign with one goal - to raise $6 million beyond annual Stewardship efforts to address four core projects crucial to the preservation of our landmark building: the restoration of our main roof; replacement of our sidewalks; refurbishment of our great dome; and improvement of our interior worship space. In the beginning months of 2016, we successfully met our goal. We are humbled by your support and generosity and incredibly grateful for your belief in our mission. As an historic landmark, our building will always have continuing capital needs, but St. Bart’s is proud that we were able to raise funds to take these important first steps.
