Usually gifts are not able to be processed due to a mistake when entering your information or when your credit/ debit card has expired. Please verify you entered the correct information and your card has not expired.

Please do not pay fee payments through the online giving portal or place fee payments in the service offering as these payments will be processed as a gift and will not be applied to the amounts you owe. Please direct any fee payments to the department or ministry handling the activity either by mail or through the fee payment link sent via email (not to be confused with the online giving portal).

Generally, yes. Substance Church is an Internal Revenue Service determined 501(c)(3) which in most cases makes your gifts to Substance Church tax deductible for income tax reporting purposes. Cases in which you would not be able to deduct your contributions include, you do not itemize deductions on your tax return, payments made for the benefit of a specific individual (camp payments, concert tickets, fair market value of a silent auction item, etc.) and gifts exceeding any charitable contribution deduction limits imposed by the Internal Revenue Service (any gift exceeding 50% of adjusted gross income as of calendar year 2018).
