Electronic Giving Options
ONLINE BANKING/BILL PAY – You can personally arrange for your Financial Institution to mail checks directly to EBBC as a onetime gift or on a recurring schedule. Many banks do not charge for this service so 100% of your gift would be received by EBBC, but you should check with your bank to confirm their fee schedule. In order to maintain consistency in the contributions process, please instruct your Financial Institution to add any designation instructions to the memo line and mail all checks to:
East Brandywine Baptist Church, Attn: Offering, 999 Horseshoe Pike, Downingtown, PA 19335
ONLINE GIVING – You can arrange to contribute online through our new online giving option. You can arrange for your offering to be a onetime gift or on a reoccurring schedule. We provide this option as a convenience to you. In an effort to provide a convenient, no-hassle online giving option, we only accept bank transfers (ACH) at this time.
Other Giving Options
CHECKS – Check may be made payable to “East Brandywine Baptist Church” and either enclosed in your personalized offering envelopes or dropped loose in the offering plate. Checks will be matched in our computer database system and matched to your household as best as possible.
CASH – Cash may be enclosed in your personalized offering envelope (preferred method) or you may use the white pew envelopes available in the auditorium. When using the envelopes from the auditorium, please be sure to legibly print your name and address so we can specifically identify you for our records.
