Can I give a donation by mail?

Do you accept other types of donations?
Yes. We also welcome donations of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate or needed equipment. For information on how to donate this way, please email us. If considering a large one ­time donation, we suggest you write a personal check or use your bank’s online bill pay service. In both of these methods, Ecclesia is not charged any processing fees, and therefore will receive 100% of your donation amount.

How does Ecclesia budget?
The general operational budget is prepared each year by the Pastoral Staff, in coordination with the Elder Stewardship Committee.  The budget is then submitted by the Stewardship Committee to the Board of Elders for final approval.

Contributions to the General Ministry Fund support our weekly large gatherings, smaller community groups that meet throughout the city, and local and global collaborators who are doing Kingdom work around the world.

Will I receive a year­-end statement of my giving for my taxes?
Yes. Ecclesia will make contribution statements available to all donors by January 31st of the following year.  To save time, paper and money, Ecclesia will send an email to all donors with a giving account with instructions on how to access and print their contribution statement.   Contribution statements will be mailed to donors without a giving account or upon request from any donor.  All financial donations must be received by December 31st in order to be eligible for that year’s income tax deductions. Donations to Ecclesia are tax-­deductible to the extent allowed by law. Ecclesia Hollywood is a 501(c)3 not-­for­-profit religious corporation.  Donors may log in to the Ecclesia giving portal at any time to view all of their contributions and to print a giving statement.

What does the Bible say about giving?
Biblical principles for living a life of generosity can be found in many places in scripture including Deuteronomy 26:12–15; 2 Chronicles 31:4; 1 Corinthians 9:7–11; Galatians 6:6 and 1 Timothy 6:10.
