Other Ways To Give
Auto Bill Pay
If you wanted to set up automated bill pay from your bank, that would work as well. Like receiving a paper check above, we have no processing costs. You will need to set this up through your bank.
If you would send us a pledge card with all relevant information as well, then we can keep the correct records on file as your gifts come in.
Stocks and Non-Cash Gift Options
For stock and mutual fund gifts, shares are transferred into the Flourish San Diego brokerage account. We then sell the shares. A check is issued for the value of the stock or mutual fund. Once the check is received, it is deposited and credited according to your intentions.
To initiate this process, you can use the Stock Transfer Form (download the PDF here) to instruct your broker to transfer your shares from your account to Flourish San Diego.
Once a transfer has been made, it is very important to contact us with the following information. Use of the Stock Transfer Form will satisfy this request:
Your name and address
Name and number of shares transferred
Purpose of the gift
In most cases, we are not notified of the transfer by your broker. Therefore, this information is required so that we can properly acknowledge your gift and designate the funds to the staff or ministry of your preference. It can be sent by mailing a completed copy of the Stock Transfer Form, emailing us at email@example.com, or calling us at 858-215-4787.

Flourish San Diego’s ministry is dependent upon the gifts of individuals, churches, and foundations. Those serving with Flourish in full-time staff roles raise such support and depend on the financial partnership of committed friends and churches. In addition, a variety of other partners—foundations, businesses, trusts—help fund strategic initiatives such as the Collective Academy, and our other work to resource pastors and church planters.
We believe that God is the ultimate provider and that he chooses to entrust resources to his people as stewards. All these gifts are to be employed for the renewal and redemption of humanity and creation, whether they are skills, abilities, knowledge, relationships, influence or money.
Our role is to provide excellent stewardship opportunities where those resources can be invested for a significant Kingdom return. We believe and have experienced that when God calls his apprentices to a place of service, he also makes provision for them. Our role is not to “convince” individuals to support Flourish San Diego, but to clearly present the opportunities available so each person can clearly discern God’s leading.
