Giving to FBC

Giving to FBC

Thank you for supporting the mission of Faith Bible Church through the act of giving.  We consider tithing and freely given offerings to be acts of obedience and worship.

Give Online

Faith Bible Church is using Realm for all online giving. You will be able to give electronically by check or credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express). You may give as a Guest, or if you have a Realm Account, you may set up recurring gifts, view your giving history, and make changes at any time. Realm automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to track. If you have not yet set up your Realm account, see the instructions here.

Other ways to make a donation:

  • Mail your check to:

Faith Bible Church
8130 East Kemper Road

(please note if you want to designate the gift)

  • On Sunday, put your donation in the offering box INSIDE a white giving envelope that you have filled out (available in the Lobby)
  • Transfer stocks to FBC.  Directions appear below in the FAQ section.
  • Extend your impact far beyond your lifetime through planned giving.  FBC accepts bequests made in Wills, Life Insurance Gifts, and Gift Annuities.


We ask that you not enter into debt through your contributions to Faith Bible Church.  Please be responsible in your giving.


Giving FAQ

The Bible teaches us to "Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first of all your produce; so your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine." Proverbs 3:9-10 Likewise, the Bible says that "he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

The General Fund, Missions, and Benevolence are the three most commonly used contribution options.  Other options may come and go as needed, but these will remain fixed.

Faith Bible Church will make every attempt to honor specific designations when it receives donations; however, we reserve the right to reallocate funds given to a specific designation to another need as we deem necessary.  No donations will be accepted for ministries or missionaries that the church does not already support. All donations given without designations to a specific individual are tax deductible donations.

When you enter and send online giving information you are using secure servers.  All of your information is encrypted prior to being transferred.  There is no stronger form of protection than encryption and by doing this we eliminate the possibility that someone might "tap" the line and steal your personal data from it.  You should also know that no staff at Faith Bible Church will have access to your account numbers.

If you use electronic giving and give with a deduction from your checking account, the church is charged a very low fee.  The fees are higher for using a credit card.

Some of us like the monthly reminder that we can choose to get.  Many of us like to have it automatically deducted on a certain day each month so we don’t have to remember to give to the church when we are on vacation.  Finally,  many of us like not having to remember to bring a check or checkbook to church.

By giving stock that has appreciated in value, an individual can receive the full deduction for its current value while skipping any taxes on the appreciation. Contact Paul Trenz at 513-678-5375 if you have any questions. You may contact any stockbroker and ask for instructions on making a gift to charity. A note should be sent to Paul Trenz after the stock transfer is initiated. It is our policy to sell stocks upon receipt.

Directions for giving stocks to FBC:

  • Stocks can be transferred by your broker to Wells Fargo Advisers (our broker, simple and fast). The stocks should be sent to the Faith Bible Church account at Wells Fargo which is #2712-7466. The DTC number is - #0141.
  • You should notify us to expect the gift and also tell us of any designations you have (subject to Elder approval per IRS rules).
  • You can expect a receipt to use for tax deductions within 48 hours of the gift reaching our account.

WHAT IS IT? The Ministry Forward Fund is a managed fund created by FBC to accommodate estate planning or other major donations. The Fund will make distributions at the direction of the Board of Elders, with a focus on glorifying God as we seek to fulfill our mission. These funds will be invested in a balanced portfolio of stocks and bonds to provide growth as well as protection of principal. Please see the brochure and contact the office if you have questions.
