How Can I Give?
Bring Your Offering
This is the way many give. You can write a check or give cash. It is helpful if you use offering envelopes. If you do not have them and would like some, email Melissa.
Please remember to designate your gift to:
- Church Ministry (salaries, utilities, insurance, etc.)
- Outreach (supporting our partners in the US and overseas)
- Building Improvement (major repairs and improvements)
- Deacons' Fund
- 2016 Capital Campaign
The budgeted proportions are:
- Church Ministry 64%
- Outreach 30%
- Building Improvement 6%
You can drop your gift in the offering plate or deposit it in one of the oak boxes near the doors of the sanctuary. Gifts deposited in the oak boxes will go to the Project of the Month unless otherwise designated.
Mail or Deliver a Check
There may be times when it is more convenient for you to mail or deliver your gift to Tenth. Gifts are normally processed at the beginning of the week. At the end of the year, the envelope postmark will be used to date gifts. Mailing address: Attention: Accounting, Tenth Presbyterian Church, 1701 Delancey Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103-6714.
Secure on-line giving is available above. You can setup either recurring or one time giving via transfer from your bank account. In order to manage your recurring giving online, you must have an AccessTenth account. Please contact Melissa if you are having trouble accessing your account.
Online Bill Payment
Your bill payment service, usually available through your bank, can process regular weekly or monthly gifts to Tenth in addition to one-time gifts. They will mail checks directly to: Attention: Accounting, Tenth Presbyterian Church, 1701 Delancey Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103-6714.
Speak to your Human Resource Department and ask if matching gifts are available and how they work.
Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds
You can save capital gains taxes and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value for gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual funds that have been held for more than twelve months and have appreciated in value. Direct any questions to Douglas Baker.
Charitable IRA Rollover
The charitable IRA rollover is a special provision allowing certain donors to exclude from taxable income—and count toward their required minimum distribution—certain transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to charities, including Tenth Presbyterian Church.
Appreciated Real Estate
Consider donating real estate that has appreciated in value or placing it in a trust and retaining the use of the property for life. There can be significant capital gains tax savings as well as a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property if it has been held for more than twelve months.
Gift of Insurance
You can donate an existing insurance policy or name Tenth Presbyterian Church as a beneficiary to a new or existing policy.
Gifts in Kind
Your gifts of building materials or supplies can be valuable toward specific projects. Please, though, make sure that your gift is useful to our ministry. Direct any questions to Douglas Baker.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A Charitable Gift Annuity is a gift vehicle that falls in the category of Planned Giving. A contract between a donor and Tenth Presbyterian Church whereby the donor transfers cash or property in exchange for a partial tax deduction and a lifetime stream of annual income. When the donor dies, Tenth keeps the gift. For more information email Clive Stockdale.
Consider leaving a portion of your estate to Tenth. Email Dave Hanrahan for assistance with this planning.
