“Bill Payer” Contributions

Banks and savings institutions provide a service whereby they will send a monthly check to the church and deduct the amount from your account.  Several do this at no cost to the donor.

Gifts of Stock and Securities

Gifts of stock can provide tax savings. Contact your securities advisor and work with the financial secretary at Lovely Lane UMC to ensure the transaction protects your tax advantage.

Qualified Distributions

Contributions can be made through qualified distributions from Qualified Retirement Plans such as 401k, 403B, or IRA. Please contact your financial planner for this type of contribution.

Corporate Matching Gift Program

Some employers have a Corporate Matching Gift Program where employee contributions to charitable funds are matched by the employer. Please contact your employer for information about these programs.

Endowments and Estate Gifts
