Text Message

Just text the amount you'd like to give to 316.226.8797 to start your account.

 

Automated Giving

You may have your bank set up an automatic bank draft as a way to give a fixed amount each week or each month for your gift. Contact your bank and they will guide you through the process to establish having an automatic check sent to Eastminster. You may also bring your bank account information to the church during the week and our staff will be happy to help you set up a recurring gift.

 

Weekend Service Giving

You may give your gift during Sunday worship services when the offering plate is passed. In the pew backs, you’ll find blank envelopes which you can use for your gift (with or without your name). Weekly pre-dated offering envelopes can also be provided for your family upon request from the church office.

 

Weekday Giving

You may bring your gift into the church office during regular office hours or mail your gift to the church office to the attention of Kim Case.

 

Stock Gifts

Giving appreciated stock instead of cash may be to your advantage from a tax standpoint. Taxpayers who itemize their deductions can take a deduction for the current market value of the stock which is given (as of the date of the gift) and yet not owe any capital gains tax since the gain is realized by the church. The church is exempt from capital gains tax, so this can make a significant difference based on your tax bracket and on the gain in the stock value during the time it was owned by you. Please consult your tax or financial advisor before making a significant stock gift. Contact Kim Case at 634.0337, ext. 202, to facilitate transfer of stock ownership to the church.

 

Contribution Reports

For contributors who make an annual pledge, contribution reports will be sent in May and November. This allows you to monitor where you stand in your pledge fulfillment. This report is also an internal financial control, so we ask you to please check the report for accuracy and contact Kim Case at 634.0337, ext. 202, if there are any errors. All contributors will receive a contribution report in January which will reflect the prior year’s gifts. This report must be kept with your tax return documents should you use the church gifts as an itemized tax deduction.
