Online Giving through your Bank Account
Many of us have discovered the ease of paying our bills through electronic bill pay. Just as you can pay your light bill through bill pay you can also give in the same manner. If you wish to give by electronic bill pay, please observe the following:

 

Checks should be payable to FEC or Fellowship of Evangelical Churches
The “account” line should have the name of your international worker.

 

If the check comes from a banking center, and does not include your name and return address, the “account” line should be your name, followed by the international worker’s name. For example: Account: J Austin for M Watson. Your donor number can be found on any receipt.

If you need assistance, please call FEC at (260) 423-3649. Or send us an email at giving@fecministries.org.

 

Giving Stock, Mutual Funds or Other Potential Assets

Good stewardship includes wise planning. Wise planning allows people to give more to the Lord’s work. Those who own securities and who want to make substantial gifts to any of FEC’s ministries have a number of ways to help.

 

If you have securities with long-term capital gains, US tax law allows donors to give appreciated securities and deduct the full market value as a charitable contribution. FEC can sell the securities without paying capital gains taxes.

If the securities are now worth less than you paid for them, the wise thing to do is sell the securities and give the cash. This allows you to claim the loss on your taxes and then to deduct the amount of the gift as a charitable deduction if you itemize.

 

If you would like to make a donation to FEC by giving stock, mutual funds, or other assets please contact FEC’s Administrative Department. Please give us your name, stock information and donor ID (if you have one) as well as the designation of the gift so that your stock contribution can be processed correctly.

 

If you need assistance, please call FEC at (260) 423-3649, or send us an email at: giving@fecministries.org.

 

Wills and Trusts – Planned Giving

FEC has partnered with CSF (Christian Service Foundation), FECs financial arm, to help you with any estate planning needs. Whether you would like to leave a gift to FEC in your will or give an annuity, CSF can help you utilize the resources God has given you. Call the FEC Office to learn more about giving through wills and trusts.

 

Other CSF Services benefiting FEC

In 1949, the Christian Service Foundation was founded. CSF helps individuals make charitable contributions to local FEC churches, to FEC and to other FEC affiliate corporations.

 

CSF can help create and manage Donor Advised Funds, Differed Gift Arrangements, Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Trusts.

If you need assistance, please call FEC at (260) 423-3649, or send us an email at: giving@fecministries.org.

 

Matching Gifts

Many companies will match charitable gifts given by their employees, sometimes more than doubling your contribution. Check your company’s policy to see if they have a matching program.

 

Please note that some companies exclude matching contributions for “religious purposes.”
