Our Stewardship 2020 theme—Abundant Blessings, Abundant Gratitude, Abundant Giving—acknowledges that God has graced us with abundant blessings. Ingratitude for these blessings, we encourage you to give abundantly in support of God’s work through the programs and mission projects of Bradley Hills. Donating your time to these ministries is critical, as is sharing your financial resources.
Thank you for supporting Bradley Hills and our mission to do God’s work in our world.
There are several ways you may give to the ministries of our church:
Gifts by Cash or Check
Cash: Place a cash gift into the offering plate during the worship service. If your gift is for an occasional special collection, please put it in an envelope labeled with your name and indicate the purpose of the gift so that we can keep accurate records of your donation.
Check: Write a check and place it in the offering plate, bring it to the office during the week, or mail it to the church. Make your check payable to “Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church.” If you have a special designation, write it in the memo field. If you choose to mail your check, please send it to:
Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church
6601 Bradley Blvd.
Bethesda, MD 20817
Bill Pay: Set up automated bill payment through your bank, where the bank mails a check directly to the church. You control the frequency and amount of the gift.
Gifts by Credit Card
Online: Give immediately using your credit/debit card. Give one time or set up automatic online contributions, which ensures that your gifts are received by the church on a regular basis.
Texting: Text BHPC and the amount of your gift to 73256 (REALM). For example, to donate $75 you need to enter the code “BHPC” and the gift amount: BHPC 75. This will take you to a link for you to complete your gift. Once you have given your first text gift, you will only need to approve the future gifts
Gifts of Securities (Stocks, Bonds, etc.)
Transferring securities to Bradley Hills’ brokerage account is a great way to donate appreciated securities to the church while potentially avoiding capital gains taxes. (For guidance on this subject, we recommend you seek the advice of your broker, accountant or other qualified financial professional.)
If your stocks or bonds are held by an online or traditional broker, the transfer is a simple process handled by your broker. If you hold your securities in paper form, please contact Amy de Court for specific instructions.
For either electronic or brick-and-mortar brokerages, instruct your broker to transfer either a specific number of shares or specific dollar value to:
The brokerage account information is as follows:
Brokerage House: AXA Advisors, LLC

Account Number: 7542-0632
DTC Number: 0075
Please send a letter of instruction to Amy de Court with the name and an approximate number of shares of the securities given, the date of transfer, and any special purpose you may have designated. For tax purposes, gifts of securities will be recognized in the calendar year in which they’re received by the church.
Don’t forget, for your gift to be tax-deductible in the current calendar year, the gift must be postmarked or received by the church by December 31 of that year.
