Pledge: A pledge is your indication to the church of your financial stewardship for the year. You can pledge HERE (link) or send in a pledge card found in the Narthex or business office.
Electronic Funds Transfer: One of the easiest ways to pay your pledge is by direct debit from your checking or savings account. Once a month you will make a recurring payment automatically. There is no more need to write checks. You will have peace of mind knowing that the church is receiving your contribution even if you’re unable to attend. All your contributions are recorded on you bank statements. To authorize withdrawal from your account use THIS FORM (link). If you have any questions please contact Doug Coulter at (847) 441-3400, ext. 13.
Stock Gifts: Stock transactions are handled with an account at UBS. The stock gift is transferred from the donor’s broker to UBS and immediately sold. To donate stocks to the church, call the WCC business office (extensions 12 or 13) to obtain account and DTC numbers.
Planned Giving: Don’t forget WCC when doing your estate planning to ensure our solid foundation continues to grow in the future. Maintaining our beautiful building is a constant challenge as we try to serve the needs of our parishioners. To be put in touch with our committee of financial planning consultants please call the office and leave your information. Our financial advisors know how to utilize the incentives provided by the IRS to craft a gift that is beneficial to both you and the church. One of our members will call you to discuss options that work best for your situation.
Online donation/Credit card: Making a contribution couldn’t be easier. You can now donate online using our secure PayPal account or your preferred credit card. If you would like to defray the cost to the church of the administrative fee for using PayPal please add 3% to your gift. If you would prefer to use your credit card but not online, just call Doug at (847) 441-3400, ext. 13. He can enter your transaction and even let you know the cost associated with the use of the card.
Please Note: All donors will receive a statement at the end of the year for tax deductions and tax filing purposes.
