I just asked the priest, "What is the suggested donation to thank you for the use of the church?" and he told me.  Simple as that.

So just ask them for the ‘suggested donation’ or ‘what would be an appropriate donation’.

I did some research on this site, and I found anywhere from $100-$2000!!! The $2000 was for a gothic church in LA, so I think it would depend on the church and the location.  I think for an average church, $150-$200 would be good.

I am using my own church so there is no donation for the use of the space.  But I am giving my pastor $150 for his services, most of which he will keep for himself. (He will probably give 30% or more back to the church)  So if you are using one of their pastors, keep that in mind as well.
