PayPal Giving Fund
To submit a secure one-time donation to the church through the PayPal Giving Fund (no fee charged to the church), click the “Donate” button below
You will be directed to the PayPal Giving Fund donation page for The Church in London. Select a donation amount or specify the amount of your donation in the box provided. (At the present time it is not possible to make a recurring donation; only one-time donations can be made.) Click on the blue “Donate Now” button on the PayPal Giving Fund page and then login to PayPal to complete your donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, you will need to register yourself for a PayPal account in order to donate using this method. A receipt will be sent to you from PayPal by email.
- Unless you desire to remain anonymous, please check the box next to “Share my name and email with this charity”. If the box is unchecked, the church will not know the donor’s identity and, as a result, will not be able to issue an acknowledgement of the gift for tax purposes or associate the amount given with a conference or training registration.
- At present, the PayPal Giving Fund method does not allow for designations. If you wish to designate your offering, please write your designation in an email, attach a copy of your receipt, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One-time and recurring donations can be given through PayPal via a PayPal account or a credit or debit card as described below.
Using this “Donate” button, you can:
- Give a one-time donation. Your one-time donation can be either designated or undesignated.
- Give an unending recurring monthly donation. However, you will NOT be able to designate the purpose of your recurring donation if you use the “Donate” button.

Difference between Paypal Giving Fund and and Paypal Donations:
- PayPal does not charge a processing or transaction fee for donations made to the church through the PayPal Giving Fund. However, to use this option you must have a PayPal account and donations are not credited to the church’s account for 15-45 days.
- On donations that do not use the PayPal Giving Fund, PayPal deducts 1.4% of your donation amount as a processing fee and £0.20 as a transaction fee. However, for these transactions you do not need a PayPal account and the church receives the funds immediately.
