It’s been said that one dreamer breathes life into the next. At Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community we have embraced the dream of a transformed Roman Catholic Church. Financial support is essential to breathe life into this dream and to keep it alive for future generations. To underscore our commitment, we support a full-time paid priest (ordained through Roman Catholic WomanPriests), a part-time musician, and a part time administrative assistant as well as a variety of social justice activities. We have an annual Sunday collection pledge drive and a variety of other fundraising activities, including planned giving.
Your donation will help to make our vision for a welcoming and inclusive Catholic Church a reality. We welcome gifts from persons who share our vision but live too far away to attend Sunday liturgy. Most donors simply write a small or large check or arrange a money order payable to “MMACC” and mail it to:
MMACC c/o Gethsemane Lutheran Church
2696 Melbourne Dr.
San Diego, CA 92123.
Such cash gifts enable us to put your contribution to work right away. Here are some other ways you can donate to Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community (MMACC) a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation (Federal Tax ID Number: 26-0136035).
Convenient Ways to Donate to MMACC
- Automated Check Payment: Some of our donors find it convenient to have their bank send monthly checks directly to MMACC from their bank accounts. You can usually set this up through "online bill pay" with your bank. Use the above address as the payee address. It has been our experience that banks generally do not charge for this service. You should be able to set up a recurring or one time payment based on your preference.
- Zelle: Another way to have payments made directly from your bank or credit union to MMACC's bank account is to use Chase Bank's Zelle system. Even if you don't bank at Chase, many other banks or credit unions have arrangements with Chase to accept Zelle payments. This system sends payments electronically rather than by mailing paper checks, as the Automated Check Payment systems discussed above do. There is usually no extra charge for using this service. You control both the amount and times when payments are sent. It can be done from either a website on your computer or from an App on your smartphone. You direct your donation to MMACC simply by using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. No MMACC account numbers or routing numbers are needed. MMACC's bank statements will show entries with the amounts and names of donors who choose to give in this way. If interested, check with your bank or credit union to see if this is available and how to set it up.
- By Phone / Online (via Givelify): Givelify is an app that allows you to give using your credit/debit card. It's free to download and use and you can set up single or recurring donations. You can download the Givelify app for your phone (android & iOS). Just search for "Mary Magdalene Apostle" and it should come up with our address. Feel free to "favorite" MMACC to make it easier to donate. To donate online using givelify, just click the button below.
Note: Givelify charges MMACC 2.9% + $0.30 per donation, however the simplicity of use makes it an attractive option.
- Online (via Network for Good): MMACC also welcomes Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit card gifts via Network for Good, an online donation system that serves thousands of nonprofit organizations. Simply click here to donate via Network for Good.. Note: The website charges the donor a 5% fee on donation amount. You have the option of paying the fee in addition to the donation or having fee deducted from donation amount.
