Paypal/ Venmo


Who do I make my check payable to?

Please make written checks payable to: Christian Layman Church.

Can I get a tax receipt for a cash donation?

Yes. Place your donation and a communication card in the offering bag. Fill out your name, address, and donation amount to insure accuracy for the year-end receipt.

How can I donate via Venmo?

Venmo option is available if you have Venmo app installed on your mobile devices and have opted-in to make purchases. Only viewable on Safari for iOS mobile devices and Google Chrome for Android mobile devices.

Can I donate stocks or other assets?

Yes, stock donations are accepted. There may be tax advantages to donating stocks with capital gains directly to the church vs. selling the stock personally and donating the proceeds. Please contact Lynn for details.

What is the difference between donating through PayPal and donating through PayPal Giving Fund?

PayPal and PayPal Giving Fund (PPGF) are two separate corporations.

PPGF is a donor-advised fund, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Through PPGF: 

  • PPGF will issue the tax receipt.
  • Click the "Share your name and email with the charity" box so CLC knows you donated.
  • Recurring donation payments are not available.
  • No fee is charged to CLC for receiving a PPGF donation vs. 2.2% + $0.30 per transaction if donated through PayPal.
Thank you and God bless your giving.
