By the grace of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, our lives have borne much fruit. We are called to return thanks where it is due and offer the fruits of our labor back to the Lord. Hebrews 13:16 states “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.” (NIV)  


There are many ways we can give – Time. Talents. Treasures. Material wealth – those treasures – can be given in a multitude of ways. This page outlines a variety of options for your consideration.  


** The suggestions below are not individual recommendations. Each individual should consult with their financial advisor, accountant, tax advisor, and/or lawyer to determine which strategy may be the most beneficial for them. 

Options for giving now – 


Cash or check – Gifts may be placed in the offering plate on Sunday morning, mailed to the Church Office or hand-delivered to the Church Office. Additionally, you may be able to have your bank automatically send a check to MPC. 


Online giving via Presbyterian Foundation – This portal can be used for credit card payments or bank transfer. Payments can be scheduled as one-time gifts or recurring. Follow the link below for additional directions for the Presbyterian Foundation portal. MPC pays a 2% fee on all transactions.


Gift of Stock and Other Securities – A gift of appreciated stock or other securities may have both the benefit of a charitable contribution and a tax savings. Please contact the Business Administrator ( ) and/or the Chair of the Finance Committee ( ) and ask for the Stock Donation Form. This form will provide the details your broker will need to transfer the stock or securities and will provide MPC with direction on how you want your gift used.  


Gifts from Retirement Accounts – For those who take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from retirement accounts (eg 401(k) or 403(b)), a direct transfer to charities may be made. Similarly, individuals with IRAs may be able to make a qualified charitable distributions (CQDs). Like stock donation, this can have both the benefit of charitable giving and reduce tax burden.  


Options for future giving – 


Will and estate planning – When making and reviewing estate plans, please consider charitable giving broadly and MPC specifically. Your will can provide direction for a portion of your assets to be given as a philanthropic gift.  


Charitable gift from Retirement Plan or IRAs – Next time you are asked to review the beneficiaries of your retirement and IRA account, consider adding a charitable organization in addition to your family or friends. By designating MPC as a beneficiary of any retirement plan or IRA, the Church will receive a gift that can continue to support our mission well into the future. 


Life Insurance Policies – Like the beneficiaries of your retirement accounts or IRAs, you can make MPC a beneficiary of your policy.  


Trusts and Annuities – There are a variety of trusts and annuities that can provide financial support to loved ones and/or charities. Please consult with your lawyer and/or financial advisor to explore options and determine which one will best fit your goals and desires. Please consider where MPC might fit in those plans.  


We are each called to give tithes and offerings as all that we need has been given to us, in sufficient abundance that we might share. The Bible says “each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”  (2nd Corinthians 9:7 NIV)
