Planned Giving

pledgeblock3Since its inception, the Chapel of the Cross has been buoyed by visionary leadership, by people who could see beyond the present to the great things that our parish could be and do in the world.


William Mercer Green, whom we think of as our “founding priest,” was the first of those visionary leaders.  Not only did he lead with intangible gifts, he also provided the kiln to fire the original bricks of our chapel.


To that end, we have created the William Mercer Green Society to recognize those who have made planned gifts to the Chapel of the Cross, as well as to educate those who are interested in supporting COTC ministries in perpetuity.


This Planned Giving Chart outlines the many ways you can include Chapel of the Cross in your financial plans.  Click here to read an interesting short talk by former rector Stephen-Elkins Williams, presented at the first meeting of the William Mercer Green Society.


If you have already included the Chapel of the Cross in your legacy planning, welcome to the William Mercer Green Society! Please contact the parish ( or 919-929-2193) for more information or to make additional arrangements in a confidential setting.


If you have questions about planned giving, you may communicate via the same form. We will contact you if you would like us to do so.


Thank you for prayerfully considering this opportunity to “build on the legacy of past parishioners by reflecting the simplicity and generosity of letting go.”
