Your Giving

Matters
When you give to the ministry of Blackhawk, lives are transformed. Worshiping God through releasing financial resources is a significant way to participate in telling His story in our community and world.

Project Tech

At Blackhawk, we desire to see more and more people experience the transforming power of Jesus through our Sunday worship services. When Blackhawk Brader Way was completed in November 2007, we never imagined what we now do on a weekly basis: broadcast our Sunday services online and to multiple sites, leverage the online service as a new “front door,” and hold services in multiple languages. Blackhawk Brader Way’s original technology was not designed with today’s reality in mind. So now, 16 years later, we are responding to what God is doing through our in-person and online worship services by investing in the tools that support our mission of “building a community to reach a community.”

Giving System Transition

We’re excited to announce that our online giving system has gotten an upgrade! We hope the enhancement provides a smooth, user-friendly giving experience.

Transfer Recurring Giving

If you are a current donor whose recurring gift was set up before December 11, 2023, we ask that you please transfer your recurring gift from the old system to the new system by February 1, 2024. Due to the secure way your payment information is stored, we cannot automatically transfer recurring gifts to the new system for you. Fortunately, making the transition is simple. To do so, please follow the instructions below.

Stock
To give appreciated stocks and mutual funds and avoid capital gains, provide the information on this form to your investment provider. They will work with you to donate the securities to Blackhawk Church’s brokerage account. Please return the form to Blackhawk Church at [email protected] so that Blackhawk Church can match transferred securities to the donor and determine the designation of the gift (i.e. General Fund, Debt Reduction Fund).

One of the greatest gifts you can provide to ensure that the mission continues is by making a planned gift through your estate. A planned gift provides a financial foundation that enables the future ministries of Blackhawk for generations to come.
