You will need a PayPal account to donate here, however, PayPal will cover all fees associated with your gift. Thus, 100% of your donation will reach the church. Also, please note that PayPal Giving Fund, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, will be responsible for acknowledging your gift, and it will not be included in your end-of-year statement from the church.

Otherwise, you can use this PayPal Donate Button without a PayPal account. Please understand that PayPal will charge the church a processing fee, although discounted for non-profits, that may be reflected in your end-of-year statement from the church.
