Designated Giving to Specific Funds
According to IRS regulations, in order to receive a tax deduction for donations to a nonprofit organization, control of those funds must be given to the leadership of the nonprofit. To facilitate your participation in giving, the Elder Board has set up specific funds to which you can direct your donations. The Board seeks to respect your designation and directly use those funds for expenses in that ministry area; however, they reserve the right to redirect funds to wherever they are needed.
- The General Operating Fund goes toward the expenses related to personnel, facilities and ministry activities. Money not designated to any other fund is placed in the General Operating fund. If there are not sufficient funds in the Global Outreach or Mercy funds the General Operating fund acts as the safety net to cover those on-going expenses.
- The Building Fund pays for buildings, campus improvements and plans for future campus development.
- The Global Outreach Fund supports dozens of missionaries and agencies both locally and worldwide.
- The Mercy Fund allows us to come alongside a hurting family in our church or the poor and needy of our community with short-term aid to help with housing, utilities, medical or food needs. We also address counseling needs for emotional issues.
- The Disaster Relief Fund is used to meet needs that arise from unexpected disasters in our city, state and country with the love and compassion of Christ.
