There are many ways to give, big or small, and whether you want to make a pledge for an ongoing contribution or one-time donation. Whatever you choose to give, we welcome you to join us in helping transform the world.
To pledge or donate online, click on the “Make an Online Gift” button below. It’s quick and easy! Using this link, you can also make a donation to our Feed the Hungry ministry, the Rector’s Discretionary Fund, the Flower Memorial fund, the Youth Mission Trip fund and more.
Give by Monthly Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
Don’t want to worry about remembering to pay your pledge online, or write checks? St. Matthew’s would be happy to help with that! We can schedule your gift to be withdrawn from your account on the final Friday of each month. Please fill out the EFT form below, and return it to the Church Office. We will take care of the rest. The other advantage of this method is that there are no fees charged to the church or you!
Give by Mail
Pledges and donations can be mailed to 919 Tennis Ave., Maple Glen, PA 19002. Checks should be made payable to “St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church.”
Make a Gift of Appreciated Stock
If you own shares of stock of an individual stock or mutual fund that have increased in value, you will be able to deduct the full amount of the value (assuming you can itemize deductions), while bypassing recognition of capital gains. Many mutual fund companies, such as Vanguard and T. Rowe Price, have programs whereby they will send us a check directly, once you provide relevant information. We also have a Vanguard brokerage account that can accept shares of stock from other brokerage accounts. Upon receipt, we sell the shares and invest according to our approved investment allocation. Please contact our Parish Manager if you feel this may be a good option for you.
Make a Gift of Required Minimum Distributions from 401K Plans
If you are receiving required distributions from a 401(k) or IRA, you can direct part of those to St. Matthew’s with similar tax benefits as detailed in the Appreciated Stock Gift section above. Please contact your investment adviser or fund, and alert our Parish Manager.
