Pilgrims are a generous people, supporting the staff, building, programs, and outreach of the church, including financial gifts to other non-profit groups.

As is the case with other churches, Pilgrim periodically holds a capital campaign to meet unbudgeted expenses. Currently Pilgrim is in the process of replacing the lift and making its restrooms more accessible to persons with physical limitations.

In addition to making routine pledges and donations, members at Pilgrim also contribute to all of the special offerings of the United Church of Christ, provide food and financial gifts to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry, support the CROP walk, and contribute money individually to PADS/Housing Forward through the 2% fund.
