Being open-handed is the way we live. We open our hands so God can fill them, then leave them open so we can give to what matters most. Nothing matches the satisfaction of seeing what God can do through our generosity. Giving is an act of worship with benefits both now and in eternity.

Old school still works. Drop a check in the offering pouch that gets passed at every service. Please designate if your gift is for General Fund or targeted to a special ministry. If you want to give cash, and you'd like a contribution statement, please bring in a marked envelope with your name and address.
It's fast, convenient and secure. E-giving allows a specific dollar amount to be automatically deducted from a checking or saving account. You can set this up as a one-time donation or recurring gift. You can also give by credit or debit card.
Most convenient--simply text the amount you'd like to give followed by the word Kensington (ie. '1000 Kensington') to 45777 and we'll text you back for your card number.
Stocks and Mutual Funds
You'll receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of your securities at the time of donation, and you'll pay no capital gains tax on the difference between your cost and the fair market value.
Thousands of companies match the charitable contributions of their employees. Here's how it works: The employee gets a matching gift form their employer (often the HR department) and fills it out. The employee sends the form to the nonprofit organization (Kensington) along with their gift. The nonprofit receiving the gift completes the form and mails it back to the company. The company sends the nonprofit the matching gift. Is that cool, or what?
This may be the largest single act of stewardship most of us will ever perform. However, up to 80% of Americans die without an estate plan! We can show you how to transfer the assets God has entrusted you with to individuals and charitable beneficiaries – in a tax-efficient way that achieves your goal of perpetuating God's work.
Love Antiques Roadshow? Us, too. If you have collectibles, jewelry, or rare coins to donate, contact us for info. 91% of wealth is held in non-cash assets, but represents only 20% of charitable giving. Your real estate, boats, furs, or artwork can help us help others. Please, no garden gnomes.
