Giving to West Side Directly
There are many ways you can contribute financially to West Side Presbyterian Church.
- Offering envelopes are available to all our members and may be placed in the offering on Sundays.
- General-use envelopes are also available in the church pews and may be placed in the offering on Sundays.
- Checks may be mailed to the church office (please do not send cash). Please ensure that your name and address are clearly identifiable on any checks so we can provide the appropriate documentation you need for tax purposes.
- If your bank has automated bill paying, you can set up West Side to receive electronically-generated checks, allowing you an easier way to be systematic in your giving.
Donating stocks and mutual funds and other
"property" often provides a double tax benefit (assuming that the
investment has appreciated and that you have held the stock for more than one
year). By donating appreciated
securities you avoid paying the capital gains tax when selling the stock and
the Church pays no capital gains tax when it sells the donated security. Check with a tax professional before
initiating any transfer of securities.
