We partner with VANCO for our online giving. Their system is secure and easy to use. Simply click the Online Giving button below to get started. You can set the frequency of recurring contributions in addition to making one-time special gifts. Giving methods include: (1) Automatic withdrawals from your bank account – the church is not assessed merchant fees on these transactions. (2) Credit and debit cards – you can choose to help cover the merchant fees assessed to the church on these transactions.
This is a simple, cost-effective way to give. You designate the frequency and the amount to have withdrawn from your checking account via automatic bank/ACH withdrawal. Just complete the ACH Form below and return it to the church office to get started.
Text the word GIVE to (734) 869-8052 to make a one-time or recurring contribution.
You can mail your contribution to the First United Methodist Church of Saline office, 1200 N. Ann Arbor St., Saline, MI 48176.
There are two drop boxes located in the rear of the sanctuary and two located in the balcony near the entrance doors where you can leave your contributions on a Sunday morning. Please use the pew envelopes if you’ve forgotten your offering envelope or don’t have one.
Automatic bill pay is a great way to set up recurring giving and there are no transaction or processing fees for the church. You will need to contact your bank directly for specific instructions on setting this up. Contributions should be made payable to First United Church of Saline and mailed to 1200 N. Ann Arbor St., Saline, MI 48176.
If you are 70 ½ 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 (QCD). QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met. In addition to the benefits of giving to charity, a QCD excludes the amount donated from taxable income, which is unlike regular withdrawals from an IRA. Contact your investment advisor to initiate this transaction.
Non-cash gifts of stocks, bonds, or other estate gift planning can provide you with some great tax benefits. Please contact our Financial Secretary, Michelle Grill, for stock giving instructions and other questions. Call Michelle at (734) 429-4730 or email her at .
If you prefer to mail in your offering or use the offering boxes in the sanctuary, please use our offering envelopes. You can request personal offering envelopes by calling the office or indicating your request on one of our pew envelopes. The envelopes will be mailed to you monthly. Please specify the amount and where you wish your contribution to be applied on the envelope. If nothing is checked, your contribution will automatically by applied to the General Fund.
If you forgot your envelope or don’t have offering envelopes yet, blank pew envelopes are available in every pew for your use. Simply fill out the envelope, insert your cash or check offering and place the envelope in our boxes located in the back of the sanctuary and in the balcony.
