Why we give
Stewarding our financial resources is often overlooked in our lives. But we believe that giving is an important part of our devotion to Christ as it is more blessed to give than to receive. By giving freely, we are trusting in Christ and His provision for our lives. Radiance is committed to ensuring that all financial resources are used to further advance His Kingdom.
How to give
Currently, we offer several ways to give. For all forms of payment, write the donation’s purpose on the memo line. For example, it can be for tithes, special offerings (missions, love offerings, etc.), or event payments (retreats, classes, etc.).
You can place cash or checks in the offering bag during Sunday worship. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope for tax purposes.
You can give online through PayPal. To set up a one-time or recurring payment, click the “Donate” button. All online payments are safe and secure through PayPal. We recommend linking your checking account or directly using a PayPal balance, since debit/credit cards require a transaction fee.
You can mail your donation to the church office. Please make sure to include your name and address for tax purposes. Send to:
Attn: Radiance Christian Church
1290 Fillmore St. Suite #112
San Francisco, CA 94115
Amazon started a program where they’ll donate 0.5% of your purchase to an eligible charity of your choice. You can designate Radiance as the charity as the organization of your choice by going to Radiance’s AmazonSmile site. You’ll need to make the purchase through the AmazonSmile link instead of www.amazon.com. Please note that you won’t receive a tax deduction because all donations are made through the AmazonSmile Foundation.
For all payments that have your information attached (checks or online payments), tax statements will be sent in January of that tax year.
Where do my donations go?
All donations are used for general expenses (building expenses, staff compensation, operations, etc.) as well as outreach and missions funds.
