GIVING

We have been truly blessed by the spirit of generosity in our church. The dedication and joy our members have helping others inspires us on a daily basis. We believe that generosity means sacrificing for the sake of others. Not only is generosity measured in terms of monetary donations, but also our members’ willingness to donate their time and talent. We find that when we give to others so that they may flourish, our hearts bloom as well.

Securely Give Online

In a short while, MPBT will utilize Givelify.com to process all online donations. Your information is held securely by an SSL encrypted connection. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions. You will also be able to generate a report at your convenience.

Ways to Give

There are many easy ways for you to give, including one-time gifts, online recurring giving and, of course, during our weekend worship services.

Cash

Loose cash may be dropped in the offering tray. This anonymous donation will not appear on a Giving Statement. Cash placed in an offering envelope with the donor’s first and last name, address and phone number will be recorded on a Giving Statement.

Checks

Checks can be made out to Monterey Peninsula Buddhist Temple. Please include the donor’s name and address.

Bill Pay through your Bank

Sign up through your bank to take advantage of this option. A check will be mailed directly from your bank to MPBT.

You can quickly and securely access your personal giving records and print your own IRS compatible giving statement. It is quick and convenient to establish recurring gifts and consistency helps Monterey Peninsula Buddhist Temple finances remain stable and predictable. All transactions are managed by our Financial Team, which administrates seamless reporting and entry into our accounting system.

Why is using my checking account for donations better for my church?
When you allow your Donation to be withdrawn directly from your checking account, there is no charge to MPBT. When you use your credit/bank card, there is an additional fee of 3-5% of the amount given charged to the church. For every $1,000 given, this is an extra $30-$50 (vendor fees) that the church never receives.

Donation of Time & Service

You may share your God-given talents/time with MPBT. People are the true heart and soul of our church. Giving the gift of “you” is a generous donation. Please contact us to talk about how you would like to help.
