Thank you for supporting the ministries at Calvary Chapel Corvallis. We are committed to using your gifts wisely and in a manner which is pleasing to the Lord. At Calvary Corvallis we consider giving a form of worship to the Lord, which is why we receive tithes and offerings as a part of our Sunday services.
If you prefer to give online, please use automatic Bill Pay through your banking institution OR enter your donation amount in the Give Online area on this page which will take you to a secure page to enter your credit card information. For your consideration – if you use automatic bill paying, Calvary Corvallis will receive all the funds you donate via a check in the mail. If you use the credit or debit card method, a fee of 2.5-4% will be subtracted by the credit card company before the donation gets to the church.
We believe in giving because of the GRACE God has given us.

Common Types of Gifts:
- Tithes and offerings fund church ministries, facilities and staff. In addition some of these funds are directed to benevolence, local outreaches, church planting and worldwide missions.
- Special ministry gifts are often given for special projects, ministries and missionaries.
- Gifts other than cash- Sometimes God directs individual believers to give gifts other than cash to Calvary Corvallis. If you have something God has put on your heart to give you should visit with Administrative Pastor, Rick Fletcher, or one of the ministry leaders. We can issue you a letter for the taxing authorities, acknowledging your donation.
- Estate giving- If God has put it on your heart to give some of your estate to the church, please contact us to learn more about the various options available to you.
All funds given to Calvary Chapel Corvallis are available for ministry as God directs. We strive to make sure that gifts directed to special purposes are used for those purposes. From time to time, the Calvary Corvallis Board will set up certain special accounts for projects or ministries. Donations given to these funds are restricted only to use for them.
