Giving at Oak Ridge

Thank you for your support of the Ministries of Oak Ridge United Methodist Church! You can give online via Realm, our churchwide community-building and database tool.

If you consider yourself a “regular” here at Oak Ridge, we encourage you to join Realm and you can make your online donation via the “Giving” tab on the left-hand side of the Realm page.

Whether you’re on Realm or not, you can give online (click here).

Giving Overview

Most gifts to the church come in some form of cash and are gifts to the Ministry Investment Plan (“General Budget”), which forms the foundational giving of the church. Gifts can be conveyed to the church in a number of ways, but we encourage everyone to try online giving. People who have used it so far are very pleased, and it is the most cost effective way to give accurately and quickly.

Online Giving – You can make a gift to the General Budget, or to other ancillary funds, at any time on our secure giving site. Select “Giving” from the row of buttons at the top of this page, and then select the “Give Now” tab when it appears on the drop-down menu. Once on the site, please follow the instructions for making your online gift.

Checks – Please make checks payable to “Oak Ridge United Methodist Church” or “ORUMC”, and include a note in the memo section if you wish it to apply to something other than the General Budget. Checks should be placed in the collection plate, or mailed/delivered to the church office. You may put your check in a pew envelope if you choose.

Cash – Please use a pew envelope and place envelope in the collection plate. Using the envelope will ensure proper credit to your giving history, as well as to the fund(s) selected.

Non-Cash Gifts – We have a resource to enable us to accept a broad range of non-cash gifts called i-Donate, which is accessed on The City, just like online giving. Please proceed to the “Give Now” link as described above in the online giving section. Then log into The City and look for “Giving (Non-Cash)” on the left side of the page for more information.

Legacy/Endowment Giving – The church works with the Western North Carolina Foundation of the United Methodist Church to manage our endowment giving. Select “Giving” from the row of buttons at the top of this page, and then select the “Legacy Fund” tab when it appears on the drop-down menu for more information regarding this option.

Every giver is different, so we strive to offer as many ways as possible to give for the convenience of our donors. If you have specific questions that are not addressed on the website, feel free to contact the church office for assistance. Regardless of your giving preference, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support of the ministries of Oak Ridge United Methodist Church.
