How We Give

Giving electronically

St. Paul makes electronic giving through your bank or credit card easy. Give a one-time gift or set up an automatic bank transfer on your desired date and at your preferred frequency. Set up a new automatic transfer or edit your current giving utilizing the St. Paul giving platform. 

Offering envelopes

Using weekly envelopes connects our generosity with participation in worship. It’s a tangible act of gratitude for all that God has given us.

Away from worship? Mail envelopes to the St. Paul business office, 2136 Brady Street, Davenport, Iowa 52803.

Envelopes in pew racks

General offering envelopes are also available in pew racks in the Sanctuary.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) allows individuals who are 70 1/2 years old or older to donate up to $100,000 total to one or more charities directly from a taxable IRA instead of taking their required minimum distributions. Contact the church business manager, Laura Scott, for more information.

Stocks and securities

Giving corporate stock or mutual fund shares is an option to fulfill a pledge to the church or as an additional gift. Your financial advisor will put in motion your desire to donate through electronic transfer of your stock or mutual fund shares to the church’s brokerage account.

Privacy laws make it difficult to trace the identity of a stock or fund donor. At the same time that you contact your financial advisor, please contact the church business manager, Laura Scott, by email or phone. Provide the name of the stock or mutual fund, the number of shares, and your intentions for your gift.
