Why Do We Give?

Our financial giving shows what matters most to us: the gospel being preached and lived out in Tampa and to the utmost parts of the Earth. Ultimately, we give to glorify the One who gave Himself completely so that we would have life in Him (Romans 3:23-28).

Ways to Give

By personal check or cash (100% of your gift goes to CLC): Put your check or cash into our regular Sunday worship service offering, bring it to the church office (see Bob Walker), or mail checks to “Covenant Life Church, 3511 W Bay to Bay Blvd, Tampa FL 33629.” If the gift is intended for a specific purpose, that may be noted in the “For” memo line of the check. Put cash (in an envelope with your name if you want it included on your annual giving statement)

By your bank’s bill pay service (100% of your gift goes to CLC): Direct your bank to pay CLC by mailing a check in your name to the above address.  Such gifts can be made recurring.

By online giving using our Subsplash Payment service. Once you create an account, you can give by either of the two methods below. Donors can select a purpose for their gift and make it recur if they wish.

  • By ACH (Automatic Clearing House) transfer from your checking account to CLC’s, with the church paying a 1% fee (99% of your gift goes to CLC): CLICK THIS LINK and follow the steps.  When you get to the Confirm Gift page, click on the “>” (more) symbol to the right of the Card Info field.  This will take you to the “Payment Methods” page, where you can set up a link to transfer funds from your bank account.  ACH is the most efficient online giving method.
  • By credit card payment to CLC (30 cents less than 97.7% of your gift goes to CLC): CLICK THIS LINK and select credit card as your payment method, entering the required information.  Due to the higher fee CLC must pay to receive a credit card gift, the church receives less of your gift than with any of the options above.

By donating equities (100% of your gift goes to CLC): To give stock, bonds, or other equities via CLC’s Schwab brokerage account, fill out the Asset Donation form and contact Bob Walker in the church office ( or 850.496.3432). Simply follow the instructions on the form. Please contact your accountant about the significant tax advantages to you of donating securities to CLC.

If you have questions or comments about these giving methods, please contact Bob Walker.
