Giving

Donate to Galilee here.

Giving to God and your community through Galilee couldn’t be easier. You can make a donation the same way you pay your bills.

BILL PAY – Your bank can automatically send a check for your offerings on a regular basis. There are no merchant or processing fees, so Galilee receives the full amount of your gift. Simply add Galilee UMC as a vendor through the Bill Pay service on your checking account, and have the check sent to the church at this address:

45425 Winding Road
Sterling VA 20165

If you would like to designate your gifts for something other than the General Budget of the church (Chapel at Lansdowne Woods, Building Fund, etc.) please add that information to the memo line or account reference.

ONLINE GIVING – Make a donation any time by clicking “Give” at the top of our website (or by clicking here). Online giving is a great way to support the church even when you can’t be present at worship. Make a single donation or set up recurring gifts by credit card, debit card or electronic check. Galilee pays fees associated with credit and debit card giving (approximately 2.75%), so electronic check is the least costly method of online giving.

STOCK AND SECURITIES – Stock gifts can benefit the donor and the recipient. Donors who give appreciated stock (stock that has risen in value since the time it was purchased) can transfer the stock directly to Galilee and take the full, appreciated value off their taxes as a charitable donation. You never pay taxes on the stock price gain. To make a stock transfer the donor should follow these Stock Transfer Guidelines.

LEGACY GIVING – Planned giving and estate gifts can have impacts that last for generations. There are myriad options for creating such gifts, and the Virginia United Methodist Church Foundation can help you plan your gift to Galilee. For an overview of Planned Giving, click here.

Please Contact Rev. Jason Duley if you are considering Planned Giving or Estate Gifts.
