There are three simple steps to giving online. It is simple and secure, and will only take a few moments to go through the process. All contributions are tax-deductible.
To make a one-time or recurring donation, please enter your amount by clicking the donate button.
(Please note: you do not have to have a PayPal account to make a one-time donation; you may use your debit or credit card. However, recurring donations require that you use or set up a PayPal account).
Once you click the button, you will be directed to PayPal's site. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete your donation.
You will receive an e-mail receipt of your donation, which you will need to save for tax purposes. Thank you in advance!

Here are some Frequently asked questions regarding the use of Paypal
What is PayPal, and how is New Life Fellowship using it to enable online donations?
PayPal allows us to collect donations from a button on our website or an email link. It is a low-cost way for us to make it convenient for you to keep your pledge up-to-date, or, perhaps, send a donation when you cannot make it to church.
Why did you choose PayPal?
It is the most widely-used donation provider, and we have confidence in its reliability. Also, it is inexpensive. In fact, we do not pay anything unless someone donates, and then PayPal retains a percentage of the donation as a transaction fee.
Will the information I provide be kept private?
Do I have to have a PayPal account?
No. Look for the button that allows you to choose to use a major credit card (American Express, VISA, etc.) You can use one of them without ever signing up for PayPal.
How secure is online giving/payments?
PayPal is a secure way to make a payment with your credit or debit card because this information is only processed on PayPal’s secure system. The church never sees or has access to your credit card or bank account information. For more comprehensive information see PayPal’s security overview.
Is there any charge or fee to me for this service?
No. You select the dollar amount for your gift or payment. That is the dollar amount that will be charged and your entire donation is tax deductible. The church pays a nominal fee to PayPal for the convenience and security of the service.
Does 100% of my gift go to New Life Fellowship?
If you give via cash or check then Yes but, if you use the online service provided by PayPal then-No. With every single donation, PayPal will take 2.2% plus $0.30 of that donation as a processing fee. For instance, if $100 is given, PayPal will take $2.20 plus $0.30 to pay for their processing. New Life Fellowship would receive $97.50 of the original $100.
How can I keep track of my online giving/payments?
You will receive an annual giving statement from the church which lists all donations you have given (online and in person). If you have a PayPal account then you can also see a record of donations or payments by looking at your account history. All donations and payments using your credit card will show up on your credit card statement clearly marked from NLFELLOWSHIP.
Are you encouraging people to borrow to support the church?
No. We are simply making it convenient for people who prefer to donate online to do so, not asking people to incur debt to do so.
Do I have to be a member of the church to donate?
No. We are grateful for support from all who feel motivated to do so. PayPal does ask for your contact information, and we do not currently accept anonymous donations.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes. As a tax-exempt organization, New Life Fellowship is qualified by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to receive contributions from donors. Since qualified churches are not subject to federal income tax, these donations are tax-free to the church. Donors, in turn, may be able to deduct their contributions to churches on their income tax return.
