Reveille UMC

Your Annual Pledge or Giving Estimate

Making a financial pledge or estimate of giving to Reveille enables church leaders to make critical decisions as we discern the shape and direction of our life-transforming ministries. Making a financial commitment also transforms us as disciples of Jesus Christ. Your generosity draws you nearer to God in gratitude for all that God has done for you. 

There are many ways to make a financial contribution to Reveille UMC. Offerings are taken at all three Sunday worship services. You also may give online, mail your contribution to the church, or give appreciated assets.

Online Giving: Convenient, Consistent, Secure, Simple

Consider making your contributions by direct debit from a checking or savings account. Giving by direct debit allows you to make giving a regular priority and you can set up and manage your own contributions. It also provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation while reducing processing expense.
To get started, click on the GIVE NOW button to the right. You may make a one-time gift or set up a recurring donation. Creating a profile will only take a moment and you’ll be able to make changes to recurring donations and view and print your online donation history.Please note: You will need to know your bank routing information.
Giving by direct debit from your bank account offers two additional benefits for the church:
     - There are no fees incurred by the church with direct debit from your checking or savings account. Reveille pays card processing fees when you give using a credit or debit card.
     - Using Reveille’s system allows for automatic transfer of funds. Your bank’s online bill pay feature typically results in a check being mailed to the church, which requires additional processing and staff time.

Donate by Mail

If you would like to mail a donation, please make your check payable to "Reveille United Methodist Church," include your envelope number on the check (if applicable), and mail to:
     Reveille United Methodist Church, 4200 Cary Street Road, Richmond, VA 23221


Giving Appreciated Assets

Appreciated assets – such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have gained in value – are an excellent way to make a gift to Reveille UMC, and may have tax benefits for the donor. These securities may be donated directly or used in planned gifts (like charitable trusts or charitable gift annuities). 
Donating appreciated assets to a qualified organization such as Reveille UMC usually allows the donor to avoid or defer the capital gains tax that would be owed if such assets were sold. Plus, the value of the donation is the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, which is deductible from the donor's federal income taxes (up to the IRS limits). In terms of tax benefits, it is often better to give appreciated assets rather than cash
To learn more about making a gift of securities to Reveille, please contact our financial administrator at finances@reveilleumc.org or (804) 359-6041, ext. 118. 
Please note that in order to maximize the tax advantages to the donor:
Stocks and mutual funds should be transferred in kind, not sold or liquidated. After the securities are transferred to Reveille, they will be liquidated, with the church retaining the proceeds from the sale. 
Donating stocks and mutual funds can take several days to complete.  Please allow plenty of time for the transfer, especially if the date of the gift is important (for example, at the end of the year).

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. In addition to the gifts you make to Reveille UMC, these second-mile giving opportunities allow you to extend the reach of your generosity to Richmond, to Virginia, and to the world.

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
