Giving to Wildflower
Our church is a 501(c)3 organization entirely funded by the generous contributions of its members and friends, in addition to any grants we may receive for specific programs. This allows us to be ideologically independent and follow our own vision to create a community that lives into our values, rather than be beholden to someone else’s agenda. There are several ways that you can contribute financially to make our work and life possible.
- Giving in the Sunday offering plate. We welcome all donations.
- Pledging annually. Pledging mainly supports the church’s Operating Fund. It’s a great way to let the church know to expect your contribution so that we can plan to meet our expenses. You do not have to be a member to pledge. For members, an annual pledge is required to vote at congregational meetings. There is no minimum annual pledge, and you can plan to pay with any frequency. You can pay by bank draft or credit card (see below), check, or cash in a labeled envelope in the offering plate.
- Giving to the Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund ensures the long-term financial health of the church by earning interest and providing a base of capital to underwrite our financial commitments. If you’re interested in contributing to the Endowment Fund, contact the Stewardship team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Donating your vehicle. To donate a car, truck, or boat, check out the info below or contact the Stewardship team at email@example.com. We’ll apply the proceeds as you direct!
To give to the church with a one-time or recurring credit card charge or bank draft, visit our payment partner.

Donate Your Vehicle
Wildflower has teamed up with Charitable Auto Resources (CARS) to provide another charitable giving resource. You can now donate your old vehicle to Wildflower and CARS does the rest. They will contact you to schedule the pickup of your vehicle (running or not) and whisk it away to be sold to the highest bidder. The proceeds are then given to Wildflower to be applied as you direct to meet your pledge commitment, fund special programs or just be used as needed by the church. This is the ultimate green program as it recycles your vehicle and provides green stuff to fund the work of the church. To donate, please follow this link or email email@example.com.
