Giving

Your Gifts Are Making a Difference

(Applies to General Fund and Endowment Program)

Your generosity makes it possible for our church body to reach out to our community, our nation and our world in a variety of ways.


Support

We provide lots of ways that you can support Unity:

Auto-draft – Forward a voided check with the attached form indicating the amount and frequency to Unity's Financial Office. Your contribution will be sent from your bank account automatically. Available frequencies are 1st of month, 15th of month, 1st of quarter (Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct).

Mail – You can send a check in the mail any time. Make checks payable to Unity Presbyterian Church, PO BOX 1267, Fort Mill, SC 29716.

Online – Giving online is easy, safe and secure. By clicking this link you can log in to make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift.

Worship – During our Sunday morning worship services you are welcome to place a check or cash in the offering basket as it is passed at the end of each service. Feel free to use the envelopes provided in the chair pockets as well. Make checks payable to Unity Presbyterian Church.

 

Additional Giving Opportunities

In addition to checks, cash and online giving consider the following additional ways to support Unity:

1. Gifts of Appreciated Stock: When stock is donated to a non-profit charity, like Unity, two benefits are realized. First, Unity gains the full value of the donated stock. Second, the owner likely would not owe any tax on the increased value of the stock.

2. Charitable IRA Rollover aka Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD): For individuals with Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) there are requirements once you turn 70½ to begin taking Required Minimum Distributions (RMD). Under current rules individuals age 70½ or older may transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA accounts directly to a charity, like Unity, without recognizing the distribution as income. Such a distribution counts toward the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), the mandatory, minimum yearly withdrawals that generally must be taken starting in the year after you turn 70½ and avoid any penalty tax that occurs by not meeting the RMD. This is a tax benefit to the individual while supporting Unity. 

3. Employer Charitable Gift Matching Programs - Contact your employer for information on your company’s plan.

Reminder: Gifts must be received or postmarked on or before December 31st in order to be applied to your 2017 Charitable Giving Statement.


Individual circumstances vary. It is important that you seek the advice of your tax professional for personal tax benefits.
