West Asheville Presbyterian Church
On-Line Giving

First, for those who do not wish to make your donations on a computer – which is perfectly acceptable – an assurance that whatever method you have used in the past is just fine and unchanged.


But for people wanting an easier method, we now have the possibility to make gifts to the General Fund, the Centennial Endowment Fund, The Community on Haywood, a Memorial Fund or a Building Fund on-line. These can be either one time gifts or regular, automated gifts. Automated gifts can be through direct withdrawal from your bank or a credit card (Visa, MasterCharge, Discover, American Express). Automated giving solves the program of vacations and periods of time when you cannot get your check to the church in a timely fashion.


The Foundation will track all giving, allocate to the appropriate fund and for the Memorial and Endowment Funds, send out acknowledgment. Statements for those funds will come from the Foundation. Statements for the General Fund and The Community on Haywood will continue to come from the Church.


This new system will reduce workload in our office and assure us the best possible return on our Endowment Fund.

The Centennial Endowment Fund

The Centennial Endowment Fund was created by the Session to assure the future of West Asheville Pres. Gifts to the Endowment Fund and undesignated gifts to the Memorial Fund will be invested through the Presbyterian Foundation, which has a wonderful record for investments. [They also do a lot of important work for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.): check their annual report for 2015 The Presbyterian Foundation Annual Report]


Interest from the Endowment Fund can be used at the discretion of the Session for special needs. The principal will not be used except for extraordinary emergencies. All of this will promote the long time health of the Church, assuring us a good ministry long after we have all moved on to life eternal. We encourage you consider the Endowment Fund for special giving and please include it in your will. If you are interested in the technical details of the Fund the “Policies and Procedures” are available in the office.
