We have added a “Donate Now” button at the top of the right hand column of our web pages. Clicking on the button takes you to our donation page on the JustGive.org web site. You can make one-time or recurring monthly donations by credit card for St. Elias. You can set up monthly stewardship contributions, so that the church receives your donation, even when you’re not able to be there. We are faced with a difficult economic situation, and your donations are greatly needed. Please give generously.
To make a one-time donation, be sure to uncheck the box on the web page form next to “Make this a monthly recurring donation,” otherwise, your credit card will be billed monthly until you cancel it. Your donation, less 4.5% that goes to JustGive.org, will be received by St. Elias. Your entire donation is a tax-deductible donation to JustGive.org, and your donation will show up on your credit card statement as a charge by JustGive.org. Be aware that it may take up to 6 weeks for your donation to be received by the church.
JustGive is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase charitable giving by connecting people with the charities and causes they care most about. The cost of donating on JustGive is 4.5% of the amount of the donation, which includes a 3% charge levied by the credit card company and 1.5% that goes toward JustGive’s overhead.

Since the donations are made through JustGive, you will see their name on your credit card statement. They will email you a tax receipt for your donation, and they will send the donation, less 4.5%, to St. Elias the Prophet Greek Orthodox Church. When you file your taxes, report the entire donation as a tax-deductible donation to JustGive.
