Traditional Giving

You can support the ministry of St. Paul’s by placing 
cash or checks in the offering plate during Sunday services, or by mailing checks, payable to “St. Paul’s Ivy,” to the church office at our mailing address:

St. Paul’s Ivy
PO Box 37
Ivy, VA 22945

Online Giving

Another convenient way to support the ministry of St. Paul’s is to schedule your monthly pledge via the online billpay services of your local bank (we are not set up to take credit cards at this time). This is the electronic equivalent of writing a check. The contact details you need for setting up the church as a billpay account are:

St. Paul’s Ivy
PO Box 37
Ivy, VA 22945
telephone: 434/979-6354

Are you interested in making a one-time donation to our food pantry or other ministry? Perhaps you want to give a memorial gift but are not in the Charlottesville area. Use your bank’s billpay service – simply note the purpose in the memo line


By far the best way to support the ministry of St. Paul’s is to pledge your yearly giving in advance. This allows us to plan our annual budget and programs more effectively and responsibly. Pledge cards are available in the church office, on the usher’s table at the back of the church, and are distributed every Fall during our pledge campaign. Once you’ve filled out your card, simply mail it to the church office at the address above or drop it in the collection plate. Or, visit our GIVING page and pledge online.
