E-Giving Options
Won’t you join a growing number of families that make recurring donations to UMCL via electronic methods?
It’s easy to do and has many benefits. There’s no need to write and mail weekly or monthly checks, it saves expenses for giving envelopes and it provides a stable foundation for our important ministries. Here are ways you can be an E-giver:
  1. Monthly bank transfers from your checking/savings account to UMCL. You can download the authorization form below and e-mail the completed form to kevin.garren@umcl.org. This is a preferred method because no fees are involved.
  2. Set up recurring (or one-time) contributions by credit card or e-check. Click on the Donate button at UMCL.org and follow the prompts to set up your contribution.
  3. Giving by text is here! Save this number in your phone: 847-961-2332. To get started text the word GIVE to 847-961-2332 and follow the prompts to complete a one-time registration. After that, simply text the desired amount and UMCL to 847-961-2332. For example, text ’25 UMCL’ to 847-961-2332 to donate $25.
  4. You can also set up recurring contributions with the “auto pay” function in your bank account. This generates a paper check that is mailed to UMCL.

There are also other ways to give to UMCL. 

  1. UMCL accepts donations of shares of stock. If you would like to donate stock contact kevin.garren@umcl.org.
  2. QCD is as easy as ABC. You can donate directly from your traditional retirement account to UMCL. This is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). In addition to the benefit to UMCL, it can result in tax-savings for you. Speak to your financial and/or tax advisor for details.
  3. You may be able to make your contributions go farther! Many employers will match your contributions to UMCL. Please check with your employer to see if your contributions to UMCL are eligible to be matched.
