Giving at Kensington
End of Year Giving
You’re making a major impact in the lives of thousands, from neighbors down the street to our friends around the world.
These special one-time financial gifts support our Kensington Fund, which animates and ignites everything we do. It’s the fund that fuels things like our weekend services and student ministries and brings the light of Jesus to our local and global partners. We count on year end generosity to help finish the year strong and launch us into the new year on a strong financial footing to continue our mission of seeing every[one] transformed and mobilized by Jesus.
Everything we believe about giving comes straight from Scripture. Read more about our giving philosophies and FAQs about giving to Kensington.

LIVING OUT THE MISSION
The Kensington Fund is where it’s needed most. This is where your tithes and offerings go—supporting Christ’s church here and around the world. It’s the fund that allows us to reach people with the message of Jesus through our weekend services, arts & music, events, kids & student ministries, and global & local outreach.
A robust Kensington Fund helps us energize and animate everything we do. Please give to this fund first, then consider donations to other Kensington ministries as “over and above” giving.

WAYS TO GIVE
Old school still works. Drop a check in the offering pouch that gets passed at every service. Please designate if your gift is for General Fund or targeted to a special ministry. If you want to give cash, and you’d like a contribution statement, please bring in a marked envelope with your name and address.
It’s fast, convenient and secure. E-giving allows a specific dollar amount to be automatically deducted from a checking or saving account. You can set this up as a one-time donation or recurring gift. You can also give by credit or debit card.
Stocks and Mutual Funds
You’ll receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your securities at the time of donation, and you’ll pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value.
Thousands of companies match the charitable contributions of their employees. Here’s how it works: The employee gets a matching gift form their employer (often the HR department) and fills it out. The employee sends the form to the nonprofit organization (Kensington) along with their gift. The nonprofit receiving the gift completes the form and mails it back to the company. The company sends the nonprofit the matching gift. Is that cool, or what?
This may be the largest single act of stewardship most of us will ever perform. However, up to 80% of Americans die without an estate plan! We can show you how to transfer the assets God has entrusted you with to individuals and charitable beneficiaries – in a tax-efficient way that achieves your goal of perpetuating God’s work.
Love Antiques Roadshow? Us, too. If you have collectibles, jewelry, or rare coins to donate, contact us for info. 91% of wealth is held in non-cash assets, but represents only 20% of charitable giving. Your real estate, boats, furs, or artwork can help us help others. Please, no garden gnomes.
