Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

More Ways To Give
Online Giving has grown this past year as a secure and consistent way to give. Close to 50% of HCC attendees give online. You can set your account up at HCCtoday.org under online giving and click the “recurring” giving option. Then you can determine the amount you want you to give and whether you’d like to give weekly or monthly. Each time your card is debited you will receive an email notifying you and your giving will be accounted for in your giving receipt. Simply click the GIVE button above.
Cash or checks are usually the way most people at HCC give. Checks are made out to HCC and can be dropped in one of giving boxes on Sunday mornings. A receipt at the end of the year will be emailed to you or you can print one out online.
MAIL A CHECK
Checks should be made out to HCC and can be mailed to the office at P.O. Box 1610, Gig Harbor, WA 98335
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
- Appreciated stocks and securities which may be a good thing this year. You may have assets that have grown in value such as stocks, mutual funds, bonds that can bring you a greater tax saving. If you have owned such assets for more than a year, you may deduct the full value on the date of transfer, even if they were purchased at a lower price. This kind of donation is a great way to give a growing asset without paying the capital gains tax, yet receive a tax deduction for the full value. Email us at [email protected] if you’d like give this way.
- Gifts of Life Insurance can be made by designating HCC as your beneficiary. Premium payments are tax-deductible up to the legal limit and the entire value of the policy is set up as a gift from the start of the policy
- Property can also be donated. You can generally deduct the fair market value of assets you donate.
