Donate Online with PayPal

  1. Simply click on the Donate button. You will then be directed to PayPal where you can use your own personal PayPal account or a credit card to make your donation.

  2. Click on either +Write a note (Optional) on the first page or +Add special instructions to recipient on the "Review your donation" page. Use this field to describe how you would like your donation to be used: Sunday Offering, Memorial, Foods Resource Bank, Youth Reserve, etc.

  3. Please include your phone number so that we may contact you if we have any questions, and your address if you would like to receive a giving statement.




NOTE:  You will be credited for the full amount of your gift on your giving statement; however, PayPal charges a $.30 + 2.2% fee on each transaction. St. Matthew will receive the net amount. The minimum amount for this online contribution method is $25.


PayPal is used to complete the transaction even if you do not have a PayPal account. However, the value a PayPal account provides to you is your ability to enter your bank account and/or credit card information only once, i.e., when you set up your account. PayPal accounts are free. To establish a PayPal account by opening a separate window, click PayPal website.


PayPal is widely used for secure, on-line payments.  However, it is not to be used from public computers, such as those found in libraries and internet kiosks.  They are not private and thus not secure!
