Ways to Give

Giving is a personal decision, and we welcome all gifts of money, talent, or time, no matter the level.

Annual Pledge

Making a pledge is promising to give a specific amount of your financial resources to Los Altos United Church of Christ over the course of the calendar year.

Your Annual Pledge supports the mission and ministries of Los Altos UCC and enables the church to prepare an annual budget to fund our work each year.

Making a commitment is an important way to make the support of the church a priority in your life. If your situation changes during the year, you can change your pledge and giving as needed.

Sunday Morning Offering

Each week we have an opportunity to give to the church’s ministry as a part of our worship. You can write a check to Los Altos UCC and place it in the offering plate when it is passed. You can also contribute cash; if you enclose the cash in an envelope with your name on it, your gift will be noted in your giving record.

Offering Envelopes: We can provide giving envelopes for your convenience, if you would like them.

Online Giving

In the near future, you will be able to give online with a one time donation or scheduled recurring gifts, through a secure donation web site. Check back later for more details.

This is a reliable, safe way to conveniently put your stewardship plan into action. Because you will have the ability to set up consistent donations, there’s no need to worry about forgotten checkbooks or missed Sunday offerings. You can also set up automatic deductions by calling the church office at (562) 596-6718.


U.S. Mail

We are glad to accept checks by mail throughout the week. Just make the check payable to Los Altos UCC and mail to the church at 5550 East Atherton Street, Long Beach, CA 90815.

Stock Donations

We are glad to accept donations of publicly-traded securities. Gifts of securities can sometimes provide donors a double tax benefit, whether sold at a gain or loss. Please call the church office at (562) 596-6718 to make arrangements.

Planned Giving

Planned giving enables you to perpetuate your financial support for the church beyond your lifetime. You can give a gift that keeps on giving long after you are gone. We are glad to talk to you about how you can remember the church in ways that might help you now, and what to include in your will to accomplish what you want. Please call the church office at (562) 596-6718 to discuss further.

Other Gifts

We are glad to work with you to identify other kinds of gifts that you may want to make. Please call the church office at (562) 596-6718 to discuss.

All are welcome.

No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
