Giving at BMUC

Thank you for your generous gifts!

We are so grateful to everyone who supports God’s Kingdom through Berkeley Methodist United Church. We have a number of ways you can help support the ministry at BMUC and support our efforts to help others in need.

Online Giving:

1) Using your financial institution’s payment system (“Bill Pay”.) It should be a feature on your bank or credit union’s mobile app or website when you log in to your account. After you set it up, they will mail a check to BMU. There should be no fees. If it asks for an account number, please use your first initial and last name.

2) We have partnered with Tithe.ly to bring you secure online giving and to make it easy for you to make one-time or recurring donations. Get the App on mobile or please click here to donate online. (please note, it is the default to “cover [the Tithely] fees”, but you may uncheck the “cover fees” box if you wish to not do so. Tithely fees are between 1% and 2.9% of the donation, plus 30 cents per transaction.)

To find out more about giving online through Tithe.ly, read our blog post.

Support by Mail: If you’d like to mail in your support, your check can be mailed to Berkeley Methodist United Church, 1710 Carleton St, Berkeley CA 94703.

World Communion Sunday:
Please give generously either online at our website (Tithely) or by mailing a check to BMUC, 1710 Carleton St, Berkeley, CA 94703.  In the memo section, please write “World Communion Sunday.”

Friends of Wadi Foquin: to donate, please visit this page for instructions.

Palestine Holy Land Pilgrimage: Pilgrims, if you can, please pay for your trip by check. Make your check out to BMUC and send to Berkeley Methodist United Church, 1710 Carleton St, Berkeley 94703, c/o Rev. Pam Kurtz. Please write in the memo line, Palestine Pilgrimage payment.

If you prefer to pay online, please follow the Online Giving instructions above and be sure to choose the appropriate drop-down menu category. You must “cover [the Tithely] fees” (it is a checkbox on the payment screen) or we will ask you to send another payment to make up the difference.

Scholarship for Palestine Pilgrims: If you would like to help defray the costs for those making the Palestine Holy Land Pilgrims, your donations are truly welcome! Please send a check to “BMUC” with Scholarship for Palestine Pilgrimage donation, or use the Tithely link above.

Contribute to BMUC while You Shop: You don’t have to write us a check to support the ministries at BMUC. In the course of your everyday life, you can make donations at no extra cost to you! We have partnered with organizations like AmazonSmile, iGive, UMCmarket, eScrip, and others to make it easy for you to shop and donate at the same time. Click for more details.
