Solicitation Policy


Solicitation Policy for St Marks’s Episcopal Church – Fincastle, VA


The Vestry is charged with the responsibility of protecting the church environment so that it remains a welcoming, spiritually inviting and emotionally comfortable place to come and worship for its members, friends and visitors. We need to safeguard the environment from activities that can result in our members, friends and visitors feeling pressured to submit to solicitations of goods and services.


The Vestry is obligated to protect the privacy of the church members. Church records, directories, and similar material may not be used for personal, commercial or political purposes.


Based on this premise, the Vestry respectfully requests that there be no fundraising on the church grounds and/or use of the church directory for activities or organizations not connected with St. Marks Episcopal Church, without prior Vestry approval. This includes but is not limited to sports leagues, schools and other private activities not directly affiliated and/or supported by St. Marks Episcopal Church.


The Vestry reserves the right to sanction fundraising for organizations and activities on a church-wide basis.
