Giving During Worship Services
Offering can be placed in the boxes at the back of the Worship Center at your campus. Envelopes are available to those who request them, but you can also donate via check without an envelope. Be sure to make a note on your check if you want your offering to go to General Fund, Impact, Community Care, or ASK program. To request offering envelopes, please contact Jim Feldman, Recording Financial Secretary.
This is a secure, hassle-free way to do scheduled giving for a set amount. Contact Marcella Raine for directions on automated giving.
IRA Charitable Rollover
You also may be able to make a gift to Calvary Church with a distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA), and take advantage of tax savings. If you are over the age of 70½ you could distribute any amount up to $100,000 to a charity of your choice including Calvary Church and the distribution counts toward your minimum required distribution, but is not included in your income for income tax purposes. You should consult with your tax advisor to discuss your particular situation before making your gift.
For 2021, people as young as 59 1/2 can make withdrawals of any amount from their IRAs and gift those funds to charity with no taxation.
About the Transform Campaign
After years of prayer, our congregation and leadership developed a strategic plan to accommodate future growth at Calvary Church—that’s what the Transform Campaign was all about! We’re excited to be done with our three-year campaign which accomplished two growth goals: refreshing and building out new facilities and planting new churches overseas. We’ve been blessed with contributions of around $3.2 million. It’s amazing to see God’s people giving so generously, and we thank you!
COVID and the Campaign
Due to the uncertain economic times resulting from the pandemic, some in our Calvary Church family may need additional time to fulfill their Transform Campaign pledges. Others may wish to continue supporting the campaign beyond the original timeline. All gifts received after the scheduled end date of April 30, 2020 will be applied to reduce the debt we incurred for upgrades to both campuses. Thank you for your continued support!
To fulfill your pledges to the Transform Campaign please mark “Transform Campaign” on your giving (check or offering envelope) or go online and choose Transform Campaign Fund to enter your gift.
Whether you’d like to give a single gift, schedule recurring donations, or view your giving history, you can do it all online. It’s quick, easy, and secure. We are fully committed to providing you with the most secure environment for your sensitive data. The only payment data that is stored in our system is for recurring payments. Any other card information is deleted immediately after the transaction is processed. Thus a relatively small percentage of donors’ information is stored, and all sensitive data (for both single transactions and recurring gifts) is secured using a 256-bit transaction encryption process. That means you can give with confidence!
We’re saving postage AND trees! Starting January 31, 2020, giving statements were emailed to those whose email addresses are in our database. If we do not have an email associated with someone who contributes to Calvary Church, we will continue to send statements via USPS. If you have shared your email with Calvary but prefer to receive a hard copy statement through the mail, please contact Jim Feldman. If we do not have your current email, please update that in the Directory.
