Ways To Give

Using Venmo
A new, quick way to give!

Dollar Club
Give a dollar, make an impact

Each week, we challenge every person across all our campuses to give just $1 to make an impact in our community together. Every dollar we collect will be used to bless someone in need—and you can nominate people from our community to be dollar club recipients.

Indicate your campus in the memo line and mail your check to

Willow Creek Community Church, Attn: Accounting
67 Algonquin Road, South Barrington, IL 60010

Required Minimum Distribution
Qualified Charitable Deductions

Required Minimum Distributions are a convenient way to fuel the Kingdom! Your required minimum distribution is the minimum amount you must withdraw from your IRA each year after you reach age 72 (70 ½ before January 1, 2020). 

If you are over 70 years of age and have an IRA retirement plan, consider utilizing your RMD as a non-taxable Qualified Charitable Deduction to Willow Creek. Financial advisors can facilitate this easy process.

Apple Pay
On the MyWell App

Download the MyWell app to use Apple Pay for your giving.

Non-Cash Giving

Stocks & Mutual Funds

You will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your securities at the time of donation, and you will pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value. Fill out the appropriate form below, send a copy to your broker to authorize the transfer, and send a copy to Willow letting us know how you want the funds applied:

Vehicle Donations

Willow’s C.A.R.S. Ministry is committed to meeting transportation needs of people who are unable to meet those needs themselves. When you donate your used car to the CA.R.S. Ministry, you receive a tax deduction and someone in need of transportation receives the reliable transportation they have been praying for. Visit the C.A.R.S. Ministry page for additional information, or call (224) 512-1775.

Donor Advised Funds

If you would like to donate from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), please ask your DAF representative to mail your donation to Willow’s main campus at 67 East Algonquin Road, South Barrington, IL 60010. Also, have your DAF representative include your name and campus designation with the donation.

Retirement Accounts

If you are 70½ or older, you can give a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) directly to Willow Creek as a Qualified Charitable Deduction (QCD). Your QCD donation will not be taxed when it is sent directly to a charity. To learn more about this opportunity, please contact us at contributions@willowcreek.org or call (224) 512-6636 and press option “4”.

What's your next step in generosity?

When you realize everything you have is a gift from God, something changes. Jesus’ vision of an Acts 2 church becomes an ever-present reality. Needs are met, poverty is alleviated, injustice is fought, healing is found, and eternities are transformed through the power of Christ and His church. When you open your hands to give, not only does our church, community, and city change, but you also change. What type of giver will you be?

Compassionate Giver | Prov. 19:17

You decide to give for the first time or give towards a compassion initiative like Celebration of Hope or the Dollar Club.

Consistent Giver | 1 Cor. 16:2

You decide to give any amount on a regular basis by signing up for recurring giving through our giving platform, MyWell.

Christ-first Giver | Deut. 14:23

You begin to give 10% of your income (what the Bible calls a tithe) to the local church as an act of worship, prioritizing God through your financial commitments.

Catalyst Giver | 1 Tim. 6:17-19

 You are excited to fuel ministry through your generosity (above and beyond a tithe) and you want more information on the Catalyst Team. Select “Catalytic Giver” in this next step form to receive emails about future giving opportunities.
