Home Donations


We welcome donations from members and friends, in Ecuador or abroad, in fulfillment of a pledge or as a special offering.  Such donations are the only means of support for our ministries.


IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO CLAIM A US INCOME TAX DEDUCTION the simplest way to give is to put cash or a check in the offering plate on Sunday. If a cash contribution is for a pledge, please put it in an envelope with your name on it in order to assure that your gift is recorded. If you contribute by check, whether it is drawn on an Ecuadorean or a foreign bank, it should be made out to: Advent-St. Nicholas Church.


Non-tax deductible donations can also be made by check from within the US. 


  • Make the check out to Advent-St. Nicholas Church and mail it to
