We recognize that giving and finances can be sensitive subjects, so we want to put you at ease. We believe that giving is worship and provides a tangible way for us to follow Jesus' example of generosity toward those in need. It is a joy and privilege to use our resources to continue to tell God's redemptive story and help bring measurable changes to the world. At Valley View financial integrity and wise stewardship of God's resources are non-negotiables. We do not take an offering during our worship gatherings because we do not want those who are visiting to feel any obligation to give. Instead, we do provide a giving box on the resource table in the lobby to receive gifts from those who call Valley View their church community.
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Valley View, which is a registered 501c(3) non-profit organization, here are your options.
How we give ...
Sunday Gatherings - As you enter the Sunnyside building there is a small black box that sits on our resource table. You can drop your gift in that box at anytime. All checks can be made payable to "VVCC."
Online - Online gifts are a secure and efficient way to give. The best and least costly way to give electronically is through your own bank. One-time and recurring payment options are available through most financial institutions. We also offer online giving through Paypal. However, if you choose to give through Paypal, the charges that we incur will be deducted from your gift.
Snail Mail - You can always mail your gift to VVCC, P.O. Box 764, Oaks, PA 19456-0764.
Matching Gifts - Some employers match gifts given to non-profits by their employees. To find out more, contact the employee benefits office where you work.
Property Gifts - Gifts of tangible personal property such as equipment, books, artwork, even cars are tax deductible to the extent of their full value, as long as the property is used for tax-exempt purposes. In return, an official receipt documenting your gift will be provided.
Securities - Securities in the form of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds make excellent gifts if they have appreciated in value. Contact our church office for details.
Planned Giving Opportunities - Outright gifts, charitable gift annuities, estate planning (including Wills), and other gifts such as real estate and life insurance are all ways to creatively further God's kingdom work. Talk to your financial advisor or contact our church office for details.
