Ways to Give

Your gift is an investment in changing lives.

As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God. Through generosity we demonstrate, in a tangible way, our love for God and our neighbors. Each year we ask our members to commit to providing financial support for our church's ministry and mission. We do this because annual giving makes worship, children's ministry, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, outreach, and numerous programs possible.

Ways to Give

Electronic giving is secure, quick and easy to set up using a debit or credit card or your bank account. You can give a one-time or recurring gift through PushPay, our online giving platform.

Giving with QCDs

If you are 70 1/2 or older you can make charitable donations directly from your IRA. A direct gift from an IRA to a charity is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution or “QCD.”

How do I leave a legacy gift to the church?

Legacy gifts are a purposeful way of supporting the future ministry and mission of our church. Your estate gift can support White Memorial for decades to come. When the church or foundation receives assets as a beneficiary under a will or trust after the donor’s death, the gift is known as a “Legacy Gift.” Legacy Gifts can be made from a variety of asset classes such as cash, securities, qualified retirement plan/IRA assets, the death benefit from life insurance, or real estate. All gifts are welcome. For more information, download our Legacy Gift Planning Guide.

  1. We encourage you to complete and return your Donor Intention Form that will guide the use of your Legacy Gift to the church or foundation.
  2. To include White Memorial in your plans, use our legal name and Federal Tax ID:
    1. Legal Name: White Memorial Presbyterian Church
    2. Foundation Federal Tax ID Number: 51-0153363

We would love the opportunity to connect and answer questions. You can contact the Financial Department.
