Giving to CEF of West Texas and Your Local Chapter

We offer a few convenient ways for you to give and partner with us in reaching children. You can easily donate via your mobile phone through text giving or a secure EasyTithe online transaction.

If you prefer, you can set up a monthly "bill pay" transaction with your bank.  Another option -- the state office and most chapters can set up a monthly bank draft from your account (Electronic Funds Transfer). Call Pam Miller at 940-687-7788 if you have questions.

Of course, mailing a check is always an option as well.  

**Please note when making your donations,  the WTX state office and each chapter have separate budgets and bank accounts to better serve their areas.

Charity Annuity Option

If you are retired or near retirement, desire a fixed income and can use additional tax savings in the form of an income tax charitable donation, you should look closely at the benefits available to you in a charitable gift annuity. 

A gift annuity is a written agreement by which an individual or couple makes a gift to Child Evangelism Fellowship® and in return receives a guaranteed income for life. 

The rate of interest is based on age. An individual usually receives a higher rate then a couple will. Also the older the annuitant, the higher the interest rate. A portion of the interest income received is tax-free. 

The annuitant will also receive an income tax charitable deduction the the year the gift is given. An annuity will not be part of your estate, thus avoiding estate tax and probate costs. 

Nerus McEwen is the Director of planned Giving for Child Evangelism Fellowship and she will be glad o send calculations made especially for you. All you need to do is contact her with your information.  Nerus can be reached at 866-563-9114
