Giving

Thank you for considering a gift to University Presbyterian Church. Your tithes and offerings enable the church to fulfill our mission: “As a community of faith in Jesus Christ, UPC members believe we are called to a reconciling relationship with God, with one another, and with the world beyond our walls.”  Your giving is an act of worship and makes possible all the diverse ministries of the church.

“We are taught that all the endowments which we possess are divine deposits entrusted to us for the very purpose of being distributed for the good of our neighbor.”  - John Calvin

All giving information is kept confidential by UPC.

2017 Stewardship Pledge

If you haven’t yet turned in your Pledge Card, you still can.  A blank form can be found here. Fill it out and return it by mail or in person at the church.

Donations

UPC encourages members to give with regularly scheduled donations. This is the most convenient way to give, and it can be done at any designated level. Payments can be changed or stopped at any time. Of course, donations may also be designated to particular missions or endowments or capital campaigns of the church and may also be made on a one-time or repeated basis at any time.

THROUGH PAYPAL, USING A DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT

This is another giving option for one-time or regular donations. Unlike the personal online banking, payment through PAYPAL requires a fee on each donation, paid by the church, but you can make a donation through PAYPAL on a one-time or recurring basis.

ONLINE BILL-PAY

Some have chosen to set up UPC as a regular payee in their personal online banking account. This is a convenient way to manage all donations in one place. If you choose this method, be sure to note if you would like your funds designated (e.g. Operating Budget, Capital Campaign). Please use the church’s main address: 300 Bushnell Ave., San Antonio, TX  78212.

Other Ways to Donate

By Check or Cash

Make checks payable to University Presbyterian Church and mail to 300 Bushnell Ave. San Antonio, Texas 78212. Of course, checks or cash may also be given during the Offering at Sunday services.

Giving Stock or Mutual Funds

Some members gain tax advantages by donating appreciated stock or mutual funds. Others make direct rollovers to UPC from an IRA. Contact the church office for information on these types of donations.

Endowment Giving

University Presbyterian Church offers additional ways to support special long term projects of the church including The SoL Center, University Presbyterian Children Center, Capital Improvement Projects. These funds are invested with the Presbyterian Foundation and you can make the donation through a special page at the Presbyterian Mission Exchange which is set up just for that purpose, go here.

You may also ask the church to set up a Named Endowment Fund if you are donating $10,000 or more and wish to designate it towards a particular purpose and may decide if only interest may be used or principal and interest.

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
