How do I give?
Several safe and secure methods of giving provide convenient ways to offer our tithes and financially contribute to Wesley UMC, Marco.
Weekend services: Simply place cash or checks in the offering box before or after the service at any weekend service. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope, so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.
Online giving: Online giving is not only easy, but it's also safe and secure. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend service.
By mail: Mail your donation to Wesley UMC at 350 South Barfield Drive, Marco Island, FL 34145. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.
Wesley UMC, Marco is committed to unleashing unprecedented levels of compassion into a broken world, and helping each of us become more fully devoted to Jesus Christ. We have the privilege of partnering with God's work in the world by using our gifts and resources through the local church.
Give using your IRA or Appreciated Assets
If you are over 70 1/2, a tax-wise way to give your donations to Wesley is by taking money from your IRA and having it sent directly to the church. By doing this you do not have to pay income taxes on the amount you withdraw. In addition, it is counted toward your annual RMD (required minimum distribution).
(Note the RMD requirement has been waived for 2020 but you can still do it).
Another tax smart way to give is to donate appreciated stock (or other assets) that are not in your IRA. This way you do not pay income taxes on the capital gain. There is no age limitation to do this.
These are two good stewardship ways you can give to do our Lord’s work at Wesley church as we Love God, Love People, Walk together in the Way of Jesus.
Please call the church office if you have questions and make sure you check with your tax advisor before taking action as the rules in this area can be complex.
