End-of-Year Giving

Access Church is 100% locally-funded, and we are so grateful for your generosity! Many of you have told us in the past few weeks that you have felt compelled to develop a plan for supporting the church you love. Thank you!

As we approach the end of the year, please note that checks must be dated and postmarked on or before Thursday, December 31, 2015, for them to apply to 2015 tax returns. If you wish to hand deliver your gift, it must be received in our offices no later than Thursday, December 31.

Please note: Church services will not be held Sunday, December 27, so the last opportunity to give in person for the year will be Sunday, December 20. All contributions received on Sunday, January 3, 2016, even if dated 2015, will apply to 2016 tax returns.

There are lots of ways to give to Access Church. As a family, develop a plan to give first, save second, and live on the rest. Then, pursue any one of the following options:

Our favorite option involves no transaction fees. Simply mail a check to 4911 Losco Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257, or send a check via your bank’s online bill-pay feature. Contact your bank for information on online bill pay.

As you exit the auditorium, you will see Giving Boxes mounted on the wall on either side of the main auditorium doors. You may give cash or checks at any time.
