God Loves a Cheerful giver.
 

"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." 2 Corinthians 9:7

We invest fully in God's work here: connecting with the church family in covenant community, becoming a disciple who lights the world, and joyfully giving in response to God’s generosity towards us. We encourage you to start right where you are.

Cash

When you're in worship on Sunday morning and want to give cash in the plate, this is a great way to participate. Unless you put it in a giving envelope, it won't be credited to your statement, but God will remember. ;-)


ARISE AND BUILD Capital campaign

ARISE AND BUILD is a capital funds campaign designed to free our church from debt while funding new ministries critical to delivering on our God-given vision in the center of our city. As of January 2016, we are debt free! And over halfway to our goal... what's next?

If your gift is for ARISE AND BUILD, please make sure to mark it accordingly so that we can credit it properly. 

ARISE AND BUILD is not part of your regular offering. Giving to ARISE AND BUILD is a special act of generosity, over and above your tithe to the church’s annual operating budget. Gifts to ARISE AND BUILD do appear on your annual giving statement.

Other Ways to Give

Employer matching doubles gifts.

An easy way to double your contribution to First Pres is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations to eligible non-profit organizations like our church. If First Pres does not qualify, our after-school mentoring program (FOUR12) in the Mercy Drive area, or our gateway outreach to the homeless at Compassion Corner may meet matching gift requirements.

If you volunteer at a First Pres, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. 

Check to See if Your Employer Matches

Use Amazon Smile when shopping.

Support First Pres with every purchase you make on Amazon.com. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.

Give Stock or Estate Gifts

Stock and estate gifts are awesome and tax-deductible! As you consider your own stewardship throughout the year, remember there are ways to improve the income tax benefit you receive for your year-end gifts.

You can transfer a gift of stocks, bonds or mutual funds as an easy way to give. Gifting stock to the church means your gift is eligible for an immediate income tax deduction.

FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY

First Presbyterian Church of Orlando is certified by the ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) a national financial accountability organization. 

Founded in 1979, ECFA provides accreditation to leading Christian nonprofit organizations that faithfully demonstrate compliance with established standards for financial accountability, transparency, fundraising, and board governance. ECFA accreditation entitles a ministry to use the ECFA seal. The continuing use of the seal depends on the ministry’s good faith compliance with all ECFA Standards. First Presbyterian Church of Orlando's ECFA Member Profile is available on their website.

First Presbyterian Church of Orlando is committed to maintaining the highest standards of financial integrity and accountability in all of its activities. In addition to maintaining strong and robust internal financial practices, the church engages the certified public accounting firm of Batts Morrison Wales & Lee (BMWL) to perform an annual independent audit of the church’s financial statements. BMWL presents its audit report annually to the church’s Support Committee and Session. Church members are welcome to contact our Finance Director, Tom Levesque with questions anytime.

As with all financial matters at the church, your commitments and gifts are treated with respect, privacy and professionalism. Knowledge of your specific gifts is limited to our Finance Office.
