4 Ways to Give


Text to Give [NEW!]

Now it's easier than ever to give during a weekend service... or anytime... from your phone! The first transaction takes less than 2 minutes to set up; give in just seconds every time after that.
Here's how:

1. Start a text to the number 74483 (you might want to save this in your contacts as Elmbrook Giving or something similar).

2. Text the keyword and amount you would like to give, make sure there is a space between the keyword and amount (i.e. EBHome 50). NOTE: Capitalization is not necessary and you do not need to include a "$" with your amount.
• EBHome = give to Home Fund
• EBHarvest = give to Harvest Fund

3. The first time you text a gift, you will receive a text back with a link to create (or sign into an existing) SecureGive account. If this is a new SecureGive account, enter and save your information for the bank or card that you want the contribution to come out of. 

4. You must reply Y for the gift to process.

5. You will receive a final text saying your transaction has processed and thanking you for your gift.

6. You will receive a confirmation email of your giving.

Current Financials

Each week we post here our current giving totals, as compared to our year-to-date budget. This information also appears in the weekly bulletin. Numbers reflect the total giving and budgets across all our campuses.

While we share our overall church giving numbers and budget openly, we also believe that what you give is meant to be between you and God. All contributions are treated as confidential and we use secure solutions for online giving.

Funds

Giving at Elmbrook falls into two funds. When you make a contribution, you can choose the amount you wish to allocate to each fund, whether you make your contribution via check, cash envelope or online. Here's where your money goes:

home
Home Fund

Home Giving provides the money needed to fund staff, facilities, operations and ongoing capital needs on all our campuses. Home Giving, on average, makes up 2/3 of our total annual budget.

God is doing so many wonderful things through these ministries. Lives are being impacted and transformed in our church and in the community.

When we talk about Home Giving, it should be noted that not only the Elmbrook family is impacted. Elmbrook Church continues to quietly be a resource to other churches by sharing the programs and resources that have been developed here with churches who do not have the ability due to limited resources. 

harvest
Harvest Fund

Throughout its history, Elmbrook has had a global vision and continues its engagement in world mission today — both globally and locally — through the Harvest Fund. From our neighborhoods in southeast Wisconsin to people in villages and cities around the world, Elmbrook serves as the hands and feet of Jesus among the poor, least-reached and under-equipped.

Through our Harvest Fund, over $2.5 million is invested annually in missionary support as well as in strategic global and local initiatives. This amount is largely determined by our annual Faith Promise commitment, held each year after Harvestfest. As a result, every individual is able to participate in and experience what God is doing in our community and world.
