Ways to Contribute Online
At the present time LME accepts online donations via credit or debit card, by bank account transfer—also called Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer—and through PayPal.
NOTICE: Those who hold a Capital One credit card can NO LONGER give through Capital One’s No Hassle Giving Site. Capital One discontinued this site on December 31, 2017, and is currently accepting no new donations. If you have questions, please call Capital One at 1-800-228-3001.
The option to give without incurring a processing fee (100% of your donation is received by LME) has been replaced by the PayPal Giving Fund.To support the gospel work in Europe, designate your gift for “European Gospel Work.” You can also designate for “Boston Trainees to Europe,” “UK Radio Work,” “Distribution of Bibles in Europe,” “UK Building Fund,” and other uses. Please specify your designation clearly.
Via a Credit/Debit Card or by ACH Transfer through EFT Corporation
One-time and recurring donations by credit or debit card can be given through EFT Corporation. A processing fee of between 2.5% and 2.9% will be charged for these donations. Significantly higher fees will be charged for credit or debit cards issued by banks outside the USA.
One-time and recurring donations by ACH transfer can be given through EFT Corporation only. This kind of donation transfers funds directly from your checking or savings account to LME. A small transaction fee of about $0.50 is charged regardless of the amount donated. For larger donations, to minimize the processing fees, we recommend that you consider giving through ACH.
To give via credit or debit card or via bank account (ACH) transfer through EFT Corporation, click on the link below.
PLEASE NOTE: For ACH transactions, the originating bank must be in the USA.

Instructions for giving through regular PayPal
To submit a secure designated or undesignated ONE TIME donation or an undesignated MONTHLY UNENDING RECURRING donation using PayPal, click the “Donate” button below. You will be directed to the PayPal checkout page. Specify the amount of your donation. Check the box "Make this a monthly donation" ONLY if you want your donation to be monthly and unending AND if you do NOT want to specify a purpose for (designate) your donation (that is, you are giving to LME's general fund). Log in to PayPal to complete your donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can either register yourself for a PayPal account or donate with a credit or debit card. To designate your one-time donation for a specific purpose, type a clear and brief description in the "Specify purpose of donation" box on the PayPal checkout page before you submit your donation. (NOTE: At present it is not possible to designate a monthly recurring donation by using the “Donate” button. If you wish to give a designated recurring donation, use the form and the “Subscribe” button below.) Undesignated offerings will be used to meet the general needs of the work. A receipt for your donation will be sent to you by email. For instructions on how to cancel or modify your recurring donation, see below.

NOTICE: PayPal will charge LME a processing fee of 2.2% plus a small added amount for each donation. If you wish to give larger amounts, to maximize the amount that is received by LME, we recommend that you consider giving through ACH transfer, which carries a minimal processing fee independent of the amount given. Click here to donate via ACH and select “Bank Account Transfer (ACH)” as the payment option. You can also give through the PayPal Giving Fund, but keep in mind that your donation will require 15-45 days to reach LME, and no recurring donations can be given by this method.
CANCELING OR MODIFYING YOUR RECURRING DONATION WITH PAYPAL: Specifying a recurring donation will set up a pre-approved recurring payment in your PayPal account. If you select anything other than "Never End" in the "How many times..." box above, your donation will cancel automatically after the specified number of donations has occurred. If you give a recurring donation using the “Donate” button above, or if you select "Never End" in the "How many times..." box in the form above, you will need to cancel or modify your recurring donation manually. To cancel or modify your unending recurring donation, log in to your PayPal account, click on the "Settings" button (wheel) and then on "Payments" and "Manage pre-approved payments." To cancel your recurring donation, click on the payment to the Church in Anaheim and cancel it. In order to change the amount and other details of your recurring donation, you must manually cancel your old donation and set up a new one on this page. You can set up more than one recurring donation for different purposes, such as general needs, European Gospel Work, etc.
