Online Donations to Churches
The Conference and the United Methodist Foundation of West Ohio have partnered with Vanco, an online giving vendor that specializes in churches. We are working with all West Ohio UM churches to establish their own programs with Vanco to assist with their stewardship efforts. We will slowly phase out this local church giving platform. In the interim, you may still support your church with donations through this site. Please contact your church for information on their plans for providing an online giving solution. Once your church is ready for online donations through Vanco or whoever they choose, any recurring donations you currently have set up with the Conference, should be cancelled by emailing Rhonda Tyree at firstname.lastname@example.org. We understand this might seem challenging for some churches to navigate and are committed to walking with them through the process. We will not turn off this service without sufficient notice.
A giving portal is now available to submit tithes and offerings to any United Methodist Church within the West Ohio Conference.
To give to your church, simply complete the form below. Follow the prompts to identify your church, along with the amount of your donation. The conference will then remit the donation to the specified church. Convenience fees are charged by the credit card companies. No fee is being charged by the Conference. In addition there are no service costs for the churches, as there are with other platforms.
We will remit donated funds on a monthly basis through direct deposit (churches will be required to submit their banking information). Churches will receive a monthly report of the gifts they received including donor name, address, date, and amount. Please contact the finance team for questions.
