Giving Options

Giving systematically is the key to faithful giving. Augustana offers several practical ways to assist you in faithful in giving.

 

Automatic giving is an easy way to put your giving plan into action.

Augustana offers several options:

Automatic withdrawal from either a checking or savings account is a convenient way to ensure that your giving to the Lord is consistent, even when you are out of town. Gifts can be given weekly, semi-monthly or monthly by an authorized withdrawal from your checking or savings account. Download an Automatic Withdrawal Authorization Form return the completed authorization to Deb Van for processing.

How do I make changes to my Giving Plan?

Contact us if you have any changes in banking information or withdrawal amounts. If you remain in the program into subsequent calendar years, the amount withdrawn will automatically be changed with your giving plan.

If I use automatic giving will I still receive offering envelopes?

No, there are cards available in the pews for you to place in the offering plate indicating that you make your gift using automated giving. If you wish to receive offering envelopes, please contact Deb Van in the church office.

Gifts of stock.

Appreciated stock, bonds, and other assets can be given outright to Augustana Lutheran Church or through a will or trust as a deferred gift. Tax liabilities can often be reduced and current income for the donor increased through these arrangements.

Please contact Deb Van, administrator, at 651-457-3373 or dvan@augustana.com, for more information on the process. Be prepared to provide her with the company name of the stock you are donating, the number of shares and instructions for applying the proceeds.

Cash or check using envelopes.

Cash or checks are the easiest way to give. Augustana provides weekly offering envelopes. If you wish to desiginate your gift to a particular area of ministry, please indicate on the memo line and/or the offering envelope. If you need envelopes, please contact Deb Van at dvan@augustana.com or 651 457-3373.
