Why Give Online?
We encourage our members to use the online method for their regular giving as it reduces the work of our volunteer counting teams, bank fees, and handling and processing fees. Online giving also improves our record-keeping efficiency and enhances the privacy of your donations.
How to Give Online?
You can make donations using online banking through your financial institution’s website. Before you begin, you will need your envelope number. If you do not have one, please contact Alma Blanco (604-435-5544 x.1029) to request it.
- Log in to your financial institution’s bill payment section
- Search for “Willingdon Church”
- Add it to your regular list of payees and use your envelope number as your account number (place “0”s in front of the number to fulfill the 3-5 digit requirement)
Presently, only general fund donations may be made with this method. General fund donations supports all church ministries, missions agencies and missionaries approved by the elders.
You do not need to complete an offering envelope for this giving method.
The following financial institutions have agreed to provide this service at no charge to Willingdon Church: CIBC, President’s Choice, Citizen’s Bank, Canadian Western Bank, TD Canada Trust, BMO, HSBC, Scotiabank, RBC, and all credit union central BC members.

Other Giving Options
For designated giving to a specific missionary or ministry, as well as general fund donations, please use the following giving methods:
Cheque or Cash (Offering Envelope)
Place cheques or cash into an offering envelope (available in the service venues or Info Desk). Please write your name, envelope number and total amount on the envelope (first time givers are required to complete all fields). Drop it into the offering bag as it passes by during the service or into the main office mail slot.
Use your debit card at one of the attended Interac terminals located at the Resource Centre before or after the weekend services. Write your envelope number on the back of the merchant copy receipt and place it in your completed offering envelope.
Set up automatic monthly withdrawals from your bank account. Please pick up a Giving Brochure at the Info Desk. Fill in the form included. This method is ideal for ongoing missionary or project support.
Mail your post-dated cheques with envelope number to the accounting department at Willingdon Church. Please do not mail cash.
Telephone Banking and ABM/ATM
The requirements for this method are similar to online banking. You will need your envelope number to set this up. Only general fund donations can be made with this method.
