Ways to Support Larchmont UMC

Electronic Funds Transfer

Electronic Funds Transfer or EFT is a convenient and reliable way to fulfill your financial commitment to the church.  EFT is also the most cost-efficient method of giving to the church, since it reduces administrative costs and helps maintain a predictable cash flow.  You can do this by logging into your On-Line Banking System, go into the Pay Bills section and then set up the Church as a regular payee.  You determine the amount and when to send in your tithe, gift or offering.     


e-Giving offers an easy way to give from a computer, pad, or phone.  You can give either once or open an account, just like you would for any retailor's site.  There are four giving categories from which to choose:
  • General Giving - funds will be used where needed

  • Missions - all funds will be used to finance Mission activities

  • Building Fund - Funds will be used for Capital expenses associated with our church building, grounds, and parsonage

  • Current Year Pledges - keep up with your 2021 Giving, whether pledged or not

Planned and Endowment Giving  

Why Planned Giving?

  • Freely Giving is part of Spiritual Growth -  It transforms you and enables Larchmont UMC and Church Family to fulfill our Global Mission - making Disciples of Jesus Christ to Transform the World - for many years and generations to come.
  • Maximize your Philanthropic Goals - You determine where and when your money goes to doe the most good.
  • Leave a Legacy - Make a difference in people's lives and always be remembered for your contribution.
  • Have a positive impact - Planned Giving provides benefits to you, your family, and Larchmont United Methodist Church.

Planned Giving has two aspects:

  • An annual giving plan and

  • a legacy giving plan for after you join the saints 

  • Annual giving.  Everyone should have an annual giving plan.  For example, you may chose to give 10% of your after-tax income.  That could be 10% to Larchmont UMC or a combination of percentages to LUMC and charitable organizations.  It doesn't matter.  Just have a plan and stick to it!
  • Legacy giving.  Planning on how to distribute your assets after death is very personal decision that takes time and prayer.  Please include giving to Larchmont UMC in your will or trust.
  • Consider combining the two.  Your plan may include annual giving and putting aside or designating money to fund a legacy.  You don't have to wait until you depart this world to start legacy giving.
