Donate Funds To The Church Or One Of Its Ministry Programs
This page contains information about how to donate funds to the church or to one of its ministry programs by direct transfer from an account at the Christian Credit Union, by a credit card payment, or by donating shares. If you wish to set up automatic regular transfers of donations from your bank account, please contact the church office for the relevant forms.
Contributing Funds Using Credit Union Internet Banking
If you are a Credit Union member (including the Christian Credit Union, Servus Credit Union, and credit unions coast-to-coast), you can now make contributions to West End Christian Reformed Church via Credit Union Internet Banking. You can do it as a one-time payment or as a recurring one.
Choose West End Christian Reformed Church from the list and add it as a ‘payee’. In the ‘account’ box enter your church envelope numbers as a three-digit number (add zeroes in front if your envelope number is below 100; for example, 002 or 068). If you wish to designate your donation for a particular ministry program in our church (other than the general budget), you will need to inform our bookkeeper of your intent also via a separate message to her. There is no cost to the church for such payments.
If you need help setting it up, please contact our church bookkeeper, Arlene VandeKamp. Phone her at 780 488-8622 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contributing Funds Via a Credit Card Payment
This section is intended for people who wish to contribute funds to the church or some designated ministry program but who do not have a church envelope number.
You may do this by charging your contribution to a credit card by clicking on the ‘Donate’ link at the top of the page.
Name and address information for the donor must be included to allow the church to issue a receipt for income tax purposes. If your contribution is designated for a particular ministry program rather than the general church budget, please indicate the name of that program in the comment section.
NOTE: The church must pay a fee for each donation, about 3 percent of the amount contributed, to the organization that handles the transaction. It is not intended, therefore, that this means of making financial contributions be used by regular church members for their contributions.
The document linked below shows how you can donate shares in a way that financially benefits both the church and yourself.
