Giving at FPC
$40K in July
Greensboro-High Point ranks ninth nationally in food insecurity. In July let's support our hunger relief ministries by donating $40,000!
This will also help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hot Dish & Hope, one of our most successful ministries to our neighbors who are hungry.
You can give online here. Please be sure to enter your amount in the box marked "FPCHunger" to properly designate your generous gift.
Now you can also give via text message! Here's how.
Make a gift to our general fund, to our hunger ministries, or toward your annual pledge from your phone.
1. Create a text message and address it to 74483.
In your message, type the code from choices below, then a space, then the amount you wish to give, without the dollar sign. The message must use this format.
- fpcgive 50 means you are giving $50 to the general fund
- fpchunger 75 means you are giving $75 to our hunger ministries
- fpcpledge 100 means you are giving $100 toward your annual pledge.
The amount, of course, is up to you.
2. You will receive a text back. The first time you give via text, you will receive a link to setup your login and card information. In future the system will recognize you automatically, and send a confirmation text asking you to respond with a Y (meaning yes). You will receive a receipt via email, and your church giving statement will include these gifts.
The 1824 Fund (named after the year we were founded) is for people who find it easier to set up regular contributions via checking, PayPal, credit card or other accounts via computer, tablet, phone, etc. Set up your giving here. Here are some instructions (pdf) if you need help setting up your account.

Charitable tax provision
People who are 70½ years of age and older can donate up to $100,000 to FPC (or another charity) directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts. These distributions will not be treated as taxable income. Depending on your circumstances, this could be an excellent way to fulfill campaign pledges, annual pledges, or to make a special year end gift to the ministries of First Presbyterian Church. Please consult with your tax advisor before making a final decision, but we wanted you to know that this provision is now permanent.
