Ways to Give
When you give you glorify God. When you give to the EFCA you make possible our mission of multiplying transformational churches among all people. Through your gifts millions are impacted by the gospel worldwide.
Automatic Monthly Donations
The first automatic deduction from your bank account will occur in about four to five weeks. Donor Services will send confirmation of your enrollment in this monthly plan and note the date of the first deduction. From then on, everything is automatic! A record of the deduction will appear on your monthly bank statement.
This is a convenient way to give to the EFCA. When making your gift online, you will have the opportunity to indicate if you would like to have a monthly reoccuring gift. However, please note that 2-3% of your gift is deducted by the credit card company for their processing fee and never reaches the EFCA. For regular funding partners, we recommend using personal checks or automatic bank withdrawal to ensure that your entire gift goes toward kingdom work.
Gifts of Stock
The EFCA welcomes all stock and mutual fund transfers. Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent option for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.
To make a gift of stock, please notify us by email specifying the number and type of shares, and the ministry designation for the gift.
