All Saints relies on regular tithes and offerings from its members for the continued operations and services of the church. All Saints offers online giving, both recurring and one-time gifts, directly from your bank account or credit card. If it is not your normal practice to pay your credit card balance in full each month, the church would prefer for you to select the bank account option or a different giving method.
Why Give Generously?
All Saints hopes you will remain faithful in supporting the Church in its worship and work to the best of your ability (membership vow #4). When members give of their time and their treasure unto the Lord, the work of God’s Kingdom continues through All Saints, both locally and in faraway places. All Saints relies 100% on the faithfulness of its members, through their tithes and offerings, to continue the mission to which God has called us.
But more importantly, to tithe to the Lord is to honor the Lord in worship. The Apostle Paul put it best when he said:
"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." - II Corinthians 9:6-7
E-giving is a convenient and easy way to donate to the work of All Saints. Additionally, you're invited to give online via bank account (direct debit) to save All Saints the 2.6% credit card fee.
If you're making a very large donation and experience any issue processing a contribution, please try splitting up your contribution into multiple donations under $5,000. Occasionally, our system experiences a glitch processing contributions in excess of $5,000.
Write a Check
You may mail a check directly to the church (7808 Rialto Blvd, Austin, TX 78735), or drop a check in the offering basket Sunday. Please make checks out to "All Saints Presbyterian Church."
You may designate that your giving be used for a specific fund by writing it in the memo line.
Please contact David Breeding at the church office (512-953-1676) to make a contribution of stock via the church's Fidelity brokerage account Z49804762 (DTC #0226).
If you have appreciated stock that you have owned for at least a year, giving it to All Saints may allow you multiple tax benefits: you may receive a charitable deduction on your income taxes for the stock’s fair market value and avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated stock value.
Directed ACH Giving
Authorize the church to deduct a fixed amount from your bank account on a recurring basis. Simply submit this authorization form.
If you're over 70 1/2 years old and have to satisfy a required minimum distributions (RMD) from your IRA each year, please consider giving to All Saints and enjoying the extra tax benefit. By authorizing a distribution from one's IRA, paid directly to All Saints, several All Saints members have found this satisfies the requirements of a "qualified charitable distribution," earning tax-free treatment. This provision applies to traditional IRAs only, not 401(k)s.
If you'd like to give to All Saints from your IRA, please have your distribution made payable to All Saints Presbyterian Church and sent to All Saints' mailing address, Attn: David Breeding.
