Giving

Online giving options

There are several ways to give to support Liberty Church. We receive tithes and offerings in all of our services as well as online through credit card or bank transfer. All giving is tax-deductible, and we will send you your year-end contribution statement in January. To ensure your card details and billing address are up to date, click here.

Text to give by texting the amount to 646-350-0705. (The first time you give by text will require a simple set-up process through Kindrid.)

Give securely online with a one-time or recurring gift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What’s the most convenient way to give?

Recurring giving via ACH is the most convenient way to give. It just takes a few minutes to set up, and your giving will automatically be sent to Liberty Church on the recurring schedule you set. Click here to set up recurring giving.

How do I edit my scheduled giving?

Simply text “edit” to Liberty Church: Smart Giving number 646-350-0705, and a reply will be sent to you with a link through which you can view and edit your scheduled gifts, add a new scheduled gift or change your payment method. It is important to note that the giving history contained in the link is not a complete record of your giving to Liberty Church. For instructions on viewing your giving record or downloading a giving statement, please see the next question.

If you do not have a smart phone or prefer to edit your scheduled giving online using a computer, you can create an account with our online giving partner, Kindrid, by visiting kindrid.com and choosing “Create a New Password”. For security, your account settings with Kindrid will need to be confirmed with a text to a phone number. Once you are logged in, go to “Account Settings” to see and edit your current scheduled giving or to add a new scheduled giving.   

How do I view my giving record or download a giving statement?

Your giving record is held in your profile on the church database (CCB). Both your Kindrid online giving and in-service giving is included in your giving record. Your first time accessing CCB will require creating a login. Choose a campus (what we would call your Community) and follow the directions. You will be emailed a link to activate your account. Once you have logged into CCB, click on your name in the upper right of the page to access your settings. From the drop-down, click on “Profile”. Just under your personal information is a menu, and “Financial” is the rightmost menu item. Click on “Financial” and you’ll see your most recent transactions, and you also will see a box for “Printable statements”. Click on “Giving Statements” and from here you can select whether it is just for you or your entire family, the date range, etc. Finally, when you click on “Run Report”, you will get a report of giving for the date range you selected that you can print or save digitally.

What is the difference between the tithe and the offering?

The tithe is 10% of our income, that in Malachi 3:8-10, God instructs us to bring back to Him. Offerings are contributions that are given over and above the tithe – from a generous and faithful heart responding to God (2 Corinthians 9:11, 1 Timothy 6:17–19).

It is important to understand, however, that giving to the church—whether tithe or offering— is used to maintain, grow, and provide for the local church community.

Can I designate my giving for something specific?

Tithes and offerings are most often undesignated, meaning that we use the funds for the normal operation of our church. However, giving can also be designated for the following purposes:

  • Offering – Liberty City Inc: A separate 501(c)3 charity that enables each community of Liberty Church to transform their neighborhoods through meeting needs and serving people.
  • Offering – Liberty Foundation (formerly Seed Fund): A separate 501(c)3 charity for planting local churches globally.
  • Offering – Visionaries: Members of our business community commit to a yearly giving goal to fund expansion projects, missions, and church planting.
  • Offering – Missionary Support (Amoss / Swaziland): Financial giving that supports our missionaries, Gethin and Bex Amoss, who are serving with Children’s Cup in Swaziland.
How can I minimize the processing fees to the church for my giving?

We encourage givers to use ACH/bank transfer rather than credit cards. The single best way to reduce fees is to give using an automated transfer from your bank by ACH, for which we pay a very small transaction fee.  While we have very favorable fees on credit and debit cards, giving $100 on a card would have transaction fees that are quadruple a bank ACH.  A $1,000 gift would have transaction fees 35 times as much as a bank ACH.

What is Liberty Church’s privacy policy?

Your information is held securely by the Church Community Builder system. This information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.

 

You can schedule new contributions at any time and can modify or cancel those contributions at any time prior to the date they are scheduled. Once the contribution has been processed, however, it cannot be cancelled.

Can I give a large donation online?

Yes, you may make large donations online, but we suggest that you consider giving via bank wire or ACH to minimize transaction fees, and maximize the reach of generosity. Please email [email protected] for instructions on wiring donations. 

Can my company match my giving to Liberty Church?

Yes, some companies can and will match your donations to Liberty Church. If your company is not able to match a donation to a church, please consider having your donation matched through Liberty Foundation. You can email [email protected] for how to set up matching donations for either organization.

What do I do if I cannot log into my giving account?

“This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.”
2 Corinthians 9:6–11, The Message
