Sunday Offering

Every Sunday during worship, we pass the collection plate. Please feel free to offer your gifts at this time.

Mail

You can also send your gift through the mail. Please send gifts to:
  • Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church, 1555 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

Non-cash Giving

Harvard-Epworth welcomes non-cash gifts like stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Giving of marketable securities may also save the giver significant taxes. Planned giving through wills, bequests, trusts or charitable gift annuities are also a way to pledge to the church into the future. These gifts are often a wise strategy for both stewardship and estate planning. The United Methodist Foundation of New England will provide guidance and help to implement any planned giving strategy for free. If you are interested or have a question on planned or non-cash giving, please contact Pastor Herb Taylor at pastor.herb@harvardepworthchurch.org
