Light Up a Life

Holiday Gifts Program at Fourth Church

Make a Gift | Initiatives Supported by Your Giving

Have someone hard to shop for on your list?

Looking to say a special thank-you to someone special?

Want to spread double the joy with each gift you give?

Light Up a Life gifts accomplish all that and more!

Through Light Up a Life gifts, you can honor or remember someone special while also helping neighbors whose needs are great this holiday season.

Simply designate where your gift should be directed and provide the names and addresses of those you wish to honor. We’ll announce your gift by sending
personalized cards to the people you wish to honor.

Give a meaningful gift and light up a life by donating to any of the following initiatives connected to Fourth Church:
