So many have asked about how to give online; here are some options that will hopefully make things easy for you. We have strived to find solutions that don't take a percentage of the transaction (like Text-To-Give, PayPal and Venmo) to insure your money is going where you intended it to go! Thank you for your faithful giving!
Most major banks offer Zelle free of charge to their customers and it is pretty easy to use. You can use Zelle from your online banking portal on your PC or they offer an app that you can use from your phone. Just a few notes:
You will need the email address of the recipient. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org
Before the transaction is complete, you will get a notice that you are sending money to "Desert Creek Fellowship, Inc"
If you don't see that notice then you need to check the email address you are sending to
In most cases, you won't be able to use a credit or debit card for this transaction
We will send you a confirmation once the transaction is complete so you know it went through!
Most all banks offer Online Banking to their customers at no charge. Through your bank's online portal you can schedule a check to be sent and they will do the rest of the work (including pick up the cost of the stamp!) You can send your tax deductible gift to the following address:
Desert Creek Fellowship PO Box 17683 Fountain Hills, AZ 85269
Please don't send anything to our physical address as we don't accept mail there and it would just be returned to you.
Cryptocurrencies are no doubt the wave of the future and some have already asked if we can accept them yet. We can accept most cryptocurrencies (see the wallet addresses below), and transactions made on the CoinBase network do not incur transaction fees (gas fees); however, others networks will charge based on the amount being sent. Currently, Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most commonly requested, but if you would like to give in a different coin, just let us know and we can get you the wallet address!)
Please Note: Do not send anything other than Bitcoin (BTC) to the Bitcoin address, or anything other than Ethereum (ETH) to the Ethereum address. Some coins have similar sounding names (like 'Bitcoin Cash' or 'Ethereum Classic'). These are different coins with different call symbols; sending coins to the wrong type of wallet address can result in the loss of the coin.
While it is often overlooked in this modern world we live in, you can still use the good 'ol US Postal Service! Going this route will set you back the additional cost of the stamp and envelope, but you may find it easier than trying to navigate the web. Please note that you will want to use the same PO Box address listed above under "online banking".
