Workplace giving campaigns are annual, employer-sponsored charitable campaigns that allow you and your fellow employees to support non-profit organizations through payroll deductions. Often, your employer will match your gift, doubling or even tripling the impact to FFICM. Simply select FFICM as recipient of your workplace giving/payroll giving.
Make a gift in honor or in memory of a special person. Birthdays, anniversaries, teacher appreciation week, holidays. Honorees can receive notice of your thoughtfulness if you want us to and give us information about who to send it to and how. Once you’re on the donate page, click the box titled “Donation Dedication” under Contribution Detail, and add the information.
Make a donation of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc) and you may receive an immediate tax deduction plus save on capital gains taxes you would have incurred had you sold the stock. Click here for a downloadable file to make a stock donation. Please consult your tax adviser before transferring appreciated securities.
Retirement Assets: Donating retirement assets, retirement plans, and life insurance policies is one of the best ways to make a gift. Naming FFICM as a beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) of all or a percentage of your IRA, 401(k), or other retirement plan assets can save your estate both income and estate taxes.
Planned Gift: Bequests can be made for specific dollar amounts, a percentage of your estate, or for a remainder amount. If FFICM is already a part of your estate plan, please let us know.
FFICM will gladly accept a charitable gift annuity. Please contact your financial planner or tax advisor before finalizing an estate plan.
Please contact our office to learn more about Legacy Giving options.
Another option is to donate printer ink, paper, envelopes, office supplies, or to pay for the airplane tickets for a specific trip. Talk to David Moore at the FFICM office for more information about current needs and how to make an “in-kind” donation to FFICM.
If you are interested in setting up an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), also known as ACH, from your bank account to contribute to the ministry of Firm Foundation In Christ Ministries, you can download a form for that here.
You can set this up as a one-time, monthly, quarterly or annual recurring donation. The benefit of doing EFT as opposed to a credit card donation is that there are no processing fees with EFT. Credit card donations cost us a processing fee of 2% – 3%.
By clicking this link here, you can choose FFICM as your charitable organization. Then, Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% to FFICM of what you purchase, without any additional cost to you.
