Donations that have built the church’s strong financial position make possible world-class initiatives that put Village Church values into action.

  • The pastoral residency program, which attracts national and international candidates to apply for a two-year stint as a first call at Village Church
  • Village Table feeding program, which creates, packages and distributes hundreds of meals a month for anyone in need
  • A robust music and choral program, led by three accomplished musicians who sustain a senior choir, a youth choir, a children’s choir, and a Village Church band
  • Youth and children’s programming that offers compelling religious education that meets children wherever they may be
  • A multiplicity of ways to grow, worship, and experience God, whether online or in person, for every stage of life

Gifts also make it possible for Village Church to support our partner organizations, including:

At Wellesley Village Church, we have many reasons to celebrate: a true community of welcome and support, a compelling vision for a vigorous future, a beautiful church home with inspiring spaces, a proud history as an open and affirming congregation, and a shared desire to faithfully serve the world in which we live. Together, we can and will grow through the gifts we share with each other and with Village Church.

Email Christine Toppin if you have questions or need help.

Give Securities

Donation of publicly traded securities you have held for more than one year—such as stocks, bonds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and mutual funds—may be a tax-advantaged way to donate to the church. You potentially eliminate the capital gains tax you would incur if you sold the securities yourself and donated the proceeds. What’s more, if you itemize deductions on your tax return instead of taking the standard deduction, you may claim a fair market value charitable deduction for the tax year in which the gift is made. Check with your tax accountant and/or brokerage firm for further details.

Contact our church accountant, Marina Berga for instructions on how to transfer securities to the church.

Some employers match employee charitable contributions, usually up to a certain maximum (some employers that do this do not match donations to religious organizations). If your employer has such a program, be sure to check if your donation to the church qualifies, and, if so, apply for a matching gift.
