We give with generous hearts, recognizing that...
Christ Church values transparency and oversight in our budgeting and spending. Our budget is approved by our Vestry, a member-elected lay leadership team, and financial reports are issued to the congregation on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis.
We offer several convenient giving methods. Consider taking advantage of one of these easy giving options as you tithe and contribute to the ministries of Christ Church.
Give a donation to Christ Church without setting up an account. This is best for single gifts where you do not need a record of giving over time.
If you have previously registered for a Christ Christ event or have set up an online giving account, you can give by logging into your account. Your giving account allows you to make online donations and review your donations for the current and prior year.
Online giving is a safe and easy way to support the ministries of Christ Church. Our system enables you to support the church by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution. Use this link to set up an account if you have never given to us online or registered for an event.
For more information about the benefits of online giving and our privacy, security, and refund policies, please visit our policy page.
The easiest way to give with cash or check is during the collection of the offering during our worship services. Contributions may also be mailed or delivered during the week to the business office.
To receive a receipt for tax deductions, enclose cash offerings in the pew envelopes. The IRS now requires receipts or statements to verify contributions of any amount for tax deduction.
When writing checks indicate on the memo line any amount that is designated to a fund other than the general operating budget.
Most banks now provide online banking, another great option for giving for those who prefer not to write checks. Just follow the directions from your bank to create a new Payee and choose to make a regular weekly or monthly payment:
If you desire for your contribution to go to a designated fund, simply add the name of the fund in the memo field.
Donations of appreciated property (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) to the church may provide you with two tax advantages. In addition to the charitable deduction, you may be able to avoid income tax on the appreciated value. Please check with your own tax advisor for the applicability of these advantages to your own situation. The following forms will assist you in this process:
Christ Church has been honored and humbled to receive estate gifts from faithful members who has passed and left a legacy to their church. You should consult with your attorney or financial advisor for guidance in determining the planned gift approach that is right for you and your family.
