Ways to Give
At First Dallas, we believe that giving of our first fruits is an act of worship and a way that we can honor God with what He has given us. For your convenience, we’ve included additional options beyond the traditional “passing the plate.”
Estate planning is sometimes referred to as planned giving or deferred giving. Through careful estate planning, your gift can continue to support First Dallas and other Christian causes, even after death. Each legacy giving arrangement can be structured to suit your individual situation, and your gift may be given through a:
- Will, by making a provision for First Baptist Church.
- Lifetime Gift, where the donor receives a lifetime benefit, such as a charitable gift annuity.
- Outright Gift, which provides the donor income tax savings for the current year, such as cash, real estate, stock, or life insurance.
Thanks to your generosity, God has greatly increased the effectiveness of First Baptist Dallas through your gifts. You have an opportunity, as at no other time in history, to transform our world through God’s Word, one life at a time. That’s why we’re excited to let you know about a new way to give that is quick, easy, and goes with you wherever you go: Pushpay®.
Pushpay® simplifies the giving process and allows you to create an account and make a contribution in just 30 seconds. Pushpay® allows you to make a one-time or recurring contribution through either your bank account via an Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction or your credit/debit card. Both options have a required processing rate of 2.2%* paid for by First Baptist Dallas from your tithes and offerings. You have the option of including this processing fee with your contribution. If you do so, we ask that you consider giving to cover those fees in addition to your tithe and offering, not out of your contribution.
For more information on Pushpay®, explore our FAQs and watch the video below.
If you have questions about online giving or about entering a transaction, please call the Finance and Accounting Office at 214.969.2403.
