Other Ways to Help Renaissance Church
In addition to the ways to give to Renaissance Church listed at renchurch.com/give, the following opportunities are available:
- Investors Bank Care2Share Affinity Program
Renaissance Church is a registered charity in Investors Bank’s Care2Share program. If you are a depositor at (any) Investors Bank, Investors will pay Renaissance Church 0.25% on the average monthly balance of your checking account or 0.15% on the average monthly balance of your savings account, CDs, IRAs, or money market accounts. It costs you nothing and is confidential (we don’t see your bank account or know who registered). Please fill out this enrollment form and return it to any Investors Bank. The Summit branch is: 393 Springfield Ave, Summit, NJ 07901. More information can be found here.
Renaissance Church is a registered charity in the AmazonSmile program. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Renaissance Church. Visit AmazonSmile or see About AmazonSmile for more information.
- Employer Matching Funds
You may be eligible to increase the power of your donations with employer matching funds. Many employers will match your personal donation. Some employers that will not match donations to a religious organization will match donations to the Ren Cares Fund. Check with your company for more information on matching gift programs. Employer matching gifts may also be available to you if you are the spouse of an employee, a retired employee, or the spouse/widow/widower of a retiree.
- Stock Donation
Giving appreciated stock can be a tax-wise approach to charitable giving. If you’d like to donate shares of publicly-traded stock, contact our office at (908) 277-3555 or firstname.lastname@example.org; and we will help you execute the transaction. Ask your tax advisor about the unique benefits of donating appreciated stock!
