Do you find yourself online shopping more than you have in the past due to this COVID-19 season?

Your purchases on Amazon can generate donations to our church at no cost to you! This is possible through Amazon's program called AmazonSmile. For every eligible purchase you make, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price to the charity of your choice! It is super simple to add this to your account:

  1. Sign up for Amazon Smile and select Legacy Christian Church as your charity.
    1. Please make sure it is the Legacy in Menomonee Falls, WI – there are other non-affiliated Legacy’s in other states. (Should be about the 5th one down on the list.)
    2. For a visual step by step guide on how to sign up click here.
  2. Open https://smile.amazon.com in your internet browser or download the Amazon app on your phone. 
    1.  If you are using the app you will need to also activate AmazonSmile in the app. Click here for a step-by-step visual guide. Please note: if you already had the app on your phone, you may need to re-install it so the new AmazonSmile feature shows up.
  3. Now you just have to continue shopping as usual!

Please remember that if you are using an internet browser, you must start your shopping at smile.amazon.com. We recommend bookmarking that page to make the process even easier!

Happy shopping and thank you for supporting Legacy Christian Church!

I still have more questions. Who should I talk to?

For any questions, concerns or comments about the online giving system, your gifts, or technical issues, please contact us by email at   or by calling 262-250-0440. You will receive a response from our staff as soon as possible.

Is it safe to give online?

Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check in that an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen.

Are there any fees involved with giving online?

There are no fees to the giver. Legacy pays a processing fee for online giving transactions. There is a way for you cover a percentage of the processing fee when you give your gift if you choose to do that. 

When will gifts be taken from my account?

Gifts will be taken from your specified bank account within 48 business hours of the date you requested. This time frame allows time for the gift to process through your bank and the church’s bank. If the date of your gift falls on a weekend or a holiday, the transaction will be initiated on the next banking day.

How will I know that I set up my gift correctly?

Immediately after setting up your gift, you will receive a confirmation email or text. You can also access past giving by logging into your Elexio Community account (previously called "My LegacyWIRED") using your current login. A list of your past giving records are accessible there. If you have any difficulties accessing your new account, email 

Will I be able to give to special Legacy "funds"?

Yes, during times when special opportunities are occurring. At this time we fund all of the regular ministries of Legacy through our general fund.

How often should I make a gift to Legacy?

Many choose to make this gift every week as a way of expressing their thanks to God. Others do so according to the way in which they are paid.

Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes. Legacy is a non-profit organization under IRC 501(c)(3) and has received its recognition by the Internal Revenue Service, as a result, your gifts to Legacy are deductible; subject to any limitation given your specific tax filing situations. Giving statements are available for you to access through your account.

Is the amount needed for Legacy the same every year?

No. Each year, Legacy’s leaders evaluate the ministry needs for the upcoming year and make a prayerful projection of the cost for overall ministry.
