Giving

Support the Ministries of SBPC with Uncommon Generosity

Throughout Scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. God tells us that giving is an act of worship and it should be done with joy and thanksgiving.


At SBPC, giving can be done in worship services, online, through Designated Giving, and Legacy Giving (Kingdom Builder Foundation).

Regular Giving

Support the Ministries of SBPC with Uncommon Generosity


Throughout Scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. God tells us that giving is an act of worship and it should be done with joy and thanksgiving.


At SBPC, you can give online, in worship, or by mail. We encourage a regular tithe or stock transfers to the Annual Ministry Fund, which supports everything needed for our ministries and missions.


Designated Giving helps to provide additional funding to specific mission partners or special projects. We also encourage legacy giving through your estate planning to the Kingdom Builder Foundation


We are grateful to God for all the gifts he has given and believe he is calling us to be a church that reaches out to our community, welcomes the next generation of families and children, and blesses those around us through acts of service so that they see God at work in our world and know the life-changing love of Jesus.


Thank you for taking time to seriously consider your commitments to SBPC.


If you have any questions about giving, please reach out to Christy Ogden in our finance department at christy@solanapres.org.

Kingdom Builder Foundation

The Kingdom Builder Foundation has been prayerfully created to allow us to dream big. It puts Christ-focused ministries on a course where money is generated and invested to sustain a perpetual motion of growing and giving.


The Kingdom Builder Foundation was created in 2007 to provide members and friends of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church the opportunity to leave legacy gifts to a member managed foundation. Interest earned on conservatively invested foundation gifts will be granted annually to answer God’s desire for us to do significant kingdom building at our church, in the community and around the world.


Visit the Kingdom Builder Foundation website for more information, apply for a grant, or learn how you can leave an enduring legacy gift
