The Stamford Church of Christ is a special place. We practice ethnic, egalitarian, and LGBTQ-affirming inclusion. We provide high quality educational programs unbound by dogmatism or fear. And we strive to prioritize truth and goodness over deceptive and exploitative evangelism, allocate a significant portion of our time and financial resources to raising our moral and spiritual consciousness, and serving our community.
If you share these values, we hope you’ll become a part of our community. And, we hope that you’ll consider becoming a financial partner, even if you don’t live in our local area.
We practice financial transparency with our budget and operating expenses because we respect and honor the gifts given to us through tithes and donations that make this extraordinary community possible.
You have 3 options to give through our website:
You can donate via PayPal by clicking the yellow DONATE button.
You can give through our online portal by clicking the green DONATE via ONLINE PORTAL button.
It will navigate you to another page where you’ll have the chance to make a donation by Credit Card or by Automatic Withdrawal. You can select whether it is a one-time gift, weekly, every 2 weeks, monthly or yearly gift.
You can use the comment section to designate where you would like your financial gift to be directed. If you’d like your financial gift to go to the general fund, which helps fund all we do, you don’t have to make a designation.
You can give by texting. Using the number 860-560-1980, you can simply enter the amount you’d like to give (e.g., $10) if you would like your donation to go towards our general fund.
Alternatively, if you would like your donation to go to one of our special giving ministries, you can enter the amount you’d like to give and one of the keywords listed below (e.g., $20 buddy) for your gift to go towards Buddy Mentor ministry.
The first time you use our text-to-give, you’ll get a reply text back saying, “It looks like you are a new giver:” with a link that will direct you to where you can briefly set up your credit-card and billing information and if it is a one-time donation or recurring one.
