By Credit Card
Paying by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or Am Ex allows you to take advantage of rewards programs. You can make a credit card gift just by clicking on the Online Giving link.
You can spread your payments over several months, making it possible to give a more significant amount than might otherwise be possible.

Just contact contact Blakely Offutt at 718-534-6589 (email@example.com).
