Give now

  • Make a one-time gift, set up a recurring donation, or make a payment using the buttons to the right.
  • Recurring donations help you to make giving a regular priority and provide much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.
  • Please consider using direct debit from your checking or savings account. Lower processing fees mean more funds available for ministry!
Thank you for your generous support of the work God does through Reveille. Our mission and ministry would not be possible without your contributions. 

Tax-wise giving 

Appreciated assets
A gift of appreciated assets – stocks, bonds, or mutual fund that have gained in value – is a win-win situation. When you give stock directly to the church, you receive a tax deduction for the current market value and avoid paying capital gains tax. These securities may be donated directly or used in planned gifts (like charitable trusts or charitable gift annuities). In terms of tax benefits, it is often better to give appreciated assets rather than cash.

Qualified charitable distribution from an IRA
If you are age 70½ or older, you may make tax-free gifts totaling up to $100,000 per year directly to a qualified charity from a traditional or Roth IRA.  The amount given will count toward your annual Required Minimum Distribution but will not be considered income to you.

Donor advised funds 
A donor advised fund can ensure you have sufficient deductions to be able to itemize in a tax year. By establishing and making a contribution to a donor advised fund this year, you can take the maximum tax deduction the IRS allows for this year, even though the distributions from your fund to Reveille and other charities may not be made until next year or later.  

Gift planning
You may wish to consider making charitable gifts as part of your financial and estate plans. There are many options for this type of giving including bequests made through a will, giving the proceeds of a life insurance policy, and gifts or retirement plan remainders.

Learn more about these and other ways to make charitable gifts in our Your Guide to Effective Giving after Tax Reform booklet. For your copy, contact Financial Administrator Candice Avent, (804) 359-6041, ext. 118, or finances@reveilleumc.org.

Connectional giving

We give to generously participate in God’s work and share all that God has given to us. Connectional giving—all of us giving together—allows United Methodists to do together what we cannot do alone. Reveille makes donations on behalf of the congregation for each of The United Methodist Church's six Special Sundays.

In addition to Special Sundays, Reveille participates in the following offerings:

Samaritan Program
The Samaritan Program of Pinnacle Living provides financial assistance to residents who can no longer afford the full cost of their care. This offering is received annually from Mother's Day through Father's Day. Learn more

United Methodist Family Services (UMFS)
UMFS is a nonprofit agency that provides a comprehensive array of programs to meet the needs of high-risk children and parents to enable them to overcome challenging circumstances and succeed. Reveille typically receives an offering for UMFS in December. Learn more

What shall I return to the Lord 
for all his bounty to me? 
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord, 
I will pay my vows to the Lord 
in the presence of all his people.
Psalm 116:12-14
