Why We Give

Giving generously is a matter of identity, gratitude, and impact.

  • First, giving is a matter of our identity. We are created in the image of God who is exceedingly good and generous. As we give generously, we fulfill a deep truth of our identity and purpose as children of God. Because giving is what we were created to do, being a generous giver is the way to live a full and meaningful life.
  • Second, it is a matter of gratitude. Giving generously is a way to thank God for all the blessings we have received: our individual lives; the loved ones around us; our time, talent, and treasure; the forgiveness of our sins; and the promise of resurrection to eternal life. We express our gratitude by loving God and neighbor, following Christ’s teachings, and generously sharing from what God has given us.
  • Third, it is a matter of impact. Jesus told us to make disciples, feed the hungry, clothe the naked…to transform both people and the world. Our generous giving through Second Presbyterian Church makes a difference in the world.

    Development Assistant for Stewardship and Endowment

    (317) 253-6461 | HWolfe@SecondChurch.org

    Hillary serves as the Development Assistant for Stewardship and Endowment.

    Hillary grew up in Indianapolis but after graduation quickly found herself living in Austin, Texas, then in Kenya working for a local organization. It was there she learned the importance of steadfast engagement in her own community and the “why” behind fundraising. After her time in Kenya, she was able to apply her new knowledge in her role as an Indianapolis Young Life Area Director. Hillary wholeheartedly believes it is a gift to partner with ministries and organizations through giving, and it is incredibly important to honor those gifts well. The Lord is on the move, and we have the opportunity to be a part of it!

    She lives downtown on the near eastside with her husband Trevor and their rescue dog, Mousse. While few things excite her more than international travel, you will most likely find her with power tools in hand working on house projects, hosting friends, or just enjoying the city.
