The “Donate” button on this page allows visitors to make a donation to the church in any amount using their credit or debit card. Since about 2% goes to PayPal out of each donation, we encourage large donations or pledges to be made through traditional checks or cash.

All donations through the website will go into our current year’s budget, but donors are free to target their gift. For example, the church will soon be replacing our 30+ year old commercial grade dishwasher (est. cost is $10,000) – anyone wanting to make a contribution can now do so through the Donate button on the website, and just specify “Dishwasher".

There are a number of other, long-term, giving options that can allow donors to fulfill their philanthropic goals while contributing to the First Baptist Church in Beverly. For these types of donations, please contact a Minister or the FBC Business Manager.

These options are:

Bequests – A gift made through a will or trust, that takes effect upon the donor’s death.

Charitable Remainder Trusts – This type of trust has its own separately invested portfolio and a donor-specified payout rate. The income may be either for life of one or more beneficiaries, or for a specified number of years.

Charitable Lead Trusts – Similar to a charitable remainder trust, where the donor places certain assets in an irrevocable trust. While the trust is active, annual payments are made to the Church.

Retirement Plans – A plan such as a 401 (k), 403 (b), IRA, Keough, or other type of retirement account can be used to make a future gift to FBC, while allowing tax benefits for heirs.

Outright gifts of Securities– The simplest way to give securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds).
