of Giving to Wekiva Presbyterian Church
If you would like
to contribute to the ongoing mission of the church, you may do so in
many ways. Here are a few of them:
Donations via Check
Your gift by check is the simplest and most often utilized means of making a gift.

Pledging & Tithing
It is easy to set up your annual pledge and/or automate your giving via credit card with our EasyTithe system. Give now by clicking the Donate button above, or please follow these Pledging & Tithing instructions to learn how.
If you are low on cash but would still like to contribute an offering to the church, please use our Giving Kiosk on the way into the sanctuary. (I included a photo of the Kiosk) We are able to accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Once you make your offering, please pick up one of the little brown business cards indicating you donated Online to drop in the offering plate during the service.
Watch the instructional video if you would like to see how it works.
Gifts of Appreciated
A gift of appreciated
securities, such as stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares, is another common
way to make a gift. If the appreciated security has been owned longer than
one year, the charitable income tax deduction is the fair market value
of the gift when donated. No capital gains tax is paid on the appreciation.
Such gifts are deductible annually, up to 30% of AGI, with the same five-year
carry-over provision as cash gifts. The security itself must be given,
rather than selling it first and donating the cash proceeds, to obtain
the fair market value deduction and to avoid the capital gains tax on the
appreciation of the security. Since such transfers happen without the donor's
name, please call and let the church office know when you make a donation
of appreciated stock, for the church records and your own records.
Gifts of Real Estate
The same tax advantages
that apply to giving appreciated securities also apply to real estate.
The giving of acreage, a lot, a house, a commercial building or any type
of real estate held longer than one year produces a charitable deduction
for the fair market value of the property and also avoids the capital gains
tax on the appreciation. If accepted, the church will take responsibility
for selling the property.
Corporations are permitted
to give away to qualified charitable organizations up to 10% of their pre-tax
profits as a charitable deduction in any given fiscal year. This provision
allows for significant tax savings for those in a position to consider
such a gift.
The above is for
information purposes only. Please consult a competent professional if legal
or tax advice is required.
