For more than 135 years, Disciples Church Extension Fund has helped congregations thrive because of charitable gifts from generous donors like you. Your financial contributions—no matter the size—allow DCEF to work closely with congregations who seek to revitalize and maximize their facilities for life-giving mission and ministry. By making a donation to DCEF, you support local churches that are creating Holy Places where people connect with God, each other and the community. Join us today, as we walk alongside congregations who are using their capital resources to love, serve, and witness to each other.
Making a charitable gift to DCEF is fast, easy and secure. In addition to donating online, you can mail your check made payable to Disciples Church Extension Fund to PO Box 7030, Indianapolis, IN 46207. Or, call us at 800.274.1883 and a member of our team will process your gift.
In addition to cash donations, Disciples Church Extension Fund offers several other ways to financially contribute to our work with Disciples ministries.
Donors who wish to leave a legacy of long-term support for DCEF’s ministry may do so through planned giving and/or establishing Permanent Funds.
Disciples Church Extension Fund investors use their Investment Notes to make charitable contributions to the Disciples ministries they love.
Donations to DCEF can be made through other giving avenues, such as the transfer of stocks, employee matching gift programs, and much more.
Because of gifts from generous donors like you, Disciples Church Extension Fund is able to work with congregations who want their facilities to support ministries that change lives. We’re pleased to share with you “good news” stories from some of the churches your financial contributions to DCEF make possible.
“I believe in the mission of Disciples Church Extension Fund and I don’t want to wait until I die for my support to be realized. When I had the privilege of serving on this board, I was blessed to work with colleagues of great vision and integrity. I am proud to join so many others in supporting this vital ministry.”
Rev. Nancy Brink
“We invest with Disciples Church Extension Fund, not only because we know that the funds will help resource loans for existing Disciples congregations for their capital projects, but as Great Commission Partners, we know that our earnings from those invested funds mean we are actively living out the Great Commission to help start new churches for generations to come.”
