Worship! Grow! Serve!
Your Financial Gifts and Donations
It is through the generous financial gifts and offerings of God's people that we are able to spread the Gospel throughout Marion County and around the World through missions.  We are committed to faithful stewardship of all that God would entrust to us.
You may make your financial gift to support our ministry in the following ways:
  • Join us for Sunday morning worship
  • Send a check to: Aulne UMC, 1404 Pawnee Rd, Marion, KS  66861
  • Your bank's Bill Pay service; add Aulne UMC as a payee and schedule your payments 
      
We sincerely appreciate your financial support.
 
NOTICE about Year-End Charitable Donations and the New Tax Reform Legislation for 2018:
 
New Tax Reform Legislation raises the standard deduction for income taxes beginning in 2018.  The Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that the number of taxpayers who will itemize their deductions in 2018 (and thereby get tax savings from charitable gifts) will fall from 40 million under current law to just 9 million under the new legislation.
 
If you currently itemize, and are financially able to do so, consider giving some or all of next year's gifts to the church before the end of this year.  You can claim your gifts on your 2017 taxes (due April of 2018) and give the church a boost.  This can be done for regular offering, special gifts such as for a capital campaign or endowment.
 
To qualify, the gift must be made by the end of this year, given in worship on or before December 31 or postmarked no later than December 30.  The check should be dated in 2017 and you might want to indicate on the memo line "2018 offering" or other designation.  The contribution will then be included on your 2017 contribution statement from the church.
