Ways to Contribute Online
At the present time LME accepts online donations via credit or debit card and by bank account transfer, also called Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer. 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 Bank Account (ACH) Transfer
Those who wish to give via credit or debit card or via bank account (ACH) transfer can give through EFT Corporation. Those who hold a Capital One credit card can give through Capital One’s No Hassle Giving Site. Both one-time and recurring donations can be given through these two websites.
Credit/Debit Card or Bank Account (ACH) Transfer
A processing fee of between 2.5% and 2.9% will be charged for donations given by credit or debit card. 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.
PLEASE NOTE: For ACH transactions, the originating bank must be in the USA.
Using a Capital One Card
The Capital One No Hassle Giving Site has posted the following notice: “The Giving Site is currently unavailable due to a technical issue. We do not yet have an estimate for the return of service. If you need to cancel a recurring donation or have other questions, please call Capital One at 1-800-228-3001.” LME will restore the link to the Giving Site after service has been resumed.
PLEASE NOTE: If you attempt to give to LME through the Capital One No Hassle Giving Site using a credit card other than a Capital One card, you will be redirected to the website of another organization, Network for Good, which will accept your donation on behalf of LME but will charge a significantly higher fee of 5% to process your donation. All donations processed by Network for Good, except those given on the Capital One No Hassle Giving Site using a Capital One credit card, will incur this higher fee.
One-time and recurring donations can be given through PayPal via a PayPal account or a credit or debit card.
To submit a secure ONE TIME donation or a 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 in the box provided and check the box "Make This Recurring" if you want your donation to be monthly and unending (but you can cancel your recurring donation; see below). 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 card. A receipt will be sent to you by email.
To designate your offering for a specific purpose, type a clear and brief description in the "Specify purpose of donation" box on the last PayPal checkout page before you submit your donation. Undesignated offerings will be used to meet the general needs of the work.
To submit a RESTRICTED RECURRING donation (monthly, quarterly, or yearly) using PayPal, fill in the form below. Indicate the purpose of your donation. Undesignated offerings will be used to meet the general needs of the work. After you finish filling in the form, click the “Subscribe” button below the form. You will be directed to the PayPal checkout page. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can either register yourself for a PayPal account or donate with a credit card. A receipt will be sent to you by email.
CANCELING YOUR RECURRING DONATION: 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 below, your donation will cancel automatically after the specified number of donations has occurred. To cancel your unending recurring donation, log in to your PayPal account, click on the "Settings" button and then on "Payments" and "Manage pre-approved payments." 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.
NOTICE: PayPal will charge LME a processing fee of about 2.5% for each donation. If you wish to give larger amounts, to maximize the amount that goes to 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Receipts for online donations will be sent by email at the time each donation is made. Please keep these receipts for income tax purposes. LME will not send receipts and yearly donation summaries for online donations.
