We were made to share. Our default mode is to get as much as we can for ourselves and our little kingdoms. But God redirects our desires to give as much as we can to others and to His Kingdom. Giving tells your heart that God will provide. It’s an act of trust and it’s an act of love.
Thanks for considering an online donation; this is the most common way we receive donations. Giving to Grace Presbyterian Church is a great way to both celebrate the work of God in your life and also support the ministries of the church.
Place your gifts, cash or check, in an offering basket during any worship service or mail your check to the church.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
Giving assets such as stocks or bonds is a particularly tax-advantaged way to donate. If your stock is in a brokerage account, transferring is relatively easy. The only information that your broker needs to make the transfer is just our account numbers and maybe our Church’s EIN:
DTC#: 0164, Code 40
Charles Schwab & Co. Inc.
211 Main Street
San Francisco, CA 94105
Account #: 77759612
Grace Presbyterian Church of Silicon Valley
Also, when you do make the transfer, please mail firstname.lastname@example.org the type of stock and the amount so that it is recorded under your name and you receive the appropriate tax deduction (on our end we are unable to see the name of whom it came from). Grace Church’s policy is to sell the assets after they are received so that the funds can be used for ministries.
A number of companies like Google, Netflix and Apple, match their employees’ giving up to a certain level through benevity.org. Those company gifts go directly into our diaconate mercy fund, which means your company can help support our compassion efforts! Check with your employer to see if they do some kind of matching.
