You can make a one-time contribution or you can setup recurring donations. You can specify whether the contribution should go to the General fund or to designated categories.

Enter the method of payment (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX, or ACH) and billing information and select Donate Now to complete the transaction.

To setup a recurring gift select Sign In and you will be prompted to create an account. You will then login and can setup the recurring gift. Choose the fund name(s) from the dropdown list. Add the amount you’d like to give. Select how often you’d like to give under frequency and select the start date. Enter your method of payment (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX, or ACH).
