Ongoing Gifts

  1. Bill Pay through your bank – NO FEES TO GALILEE – this is the most beneficial way you can give to the church

  2. Amazon Smile – make purchases at Amazon Smile instead of Amazon and designate Galilee United Methodist Church as your beneficiary. A portion of all purchases will be donated to Galilee

  3. Stock transfer – transfer stocks directly to Galilee, and in most cases you can avoid taxes on the appreciation of the stock

  4. IRA Distributions – If you are 70 1⁄2 or older, in most cases you can donate IRA distributions (including required minimum distributions) directly to Galilee and avoid taxes on the distribution

  5. Planned Giving – make Galilee the beneficiary of your bequests or trusts. You can make a lasting difference well beyond your lifetime

For all forms of online giving, using the electronic check option generates fewer fees to Galilee. This makes your gift go further toward ministry.

Among other things, your giving supports:

Sunday school curriculum, snacks and supplies; youth group events; Bible studies; congregational care; worship and communion; volunteer teams; choir; audio and visual equipment; prayer ministry; mortgage and utility bills; facility maintenance; staff salaries; local and international missions – and more.
