Have an expectant spirit as you step out in faith and obedience. We are going to do this together and it will be exciting to see where God leads us. Here are just a few creative options for giving.
One: Giving Appreciated Assets. Did you know that you can give assets directly to your church? You can avoid paying any capital gains tax and still get a fair market value deduction based on its current value.
Two: Giving “Stuff.” Here is something we all can give. We move it, we store it, we insure it, and we dust it. It might be a collectible item like stamps, coins, baseball cards, or jewelry; nonetheless, it could be a valued gift.
Three: Giving by Sacrifice. How can you increase your giving for this capital campaign out of your income? It’s a great place to start, but the problem is for many of us there’s already too much month at the end of our money. According to USA TODAY, the average family eats out 4.5x a week. Giving up one meal can increase your giving by $5,000 over three years.
