HOW TO GIVE
Miracle Offering Giving, One-Time Gifts & Ongoing Forward Commitment/Pledge Giving
You can give your miracle offering, one time gift or ongoing Forward Commitment/Pledge in any of our weekend services via check, cash or credit/debit card or online by setting up a My Vintage Account and designating your gift towards the "Forward Building Fund".
CREATIVE WAYS TO GIVE
Gifts In Kind / Appreciable Assets
Stocks, bonds, real estate and other assets provide ample giving opportunities coupled with considerable tax savings. Our Finance Team will help you donate appreciable assets, give stocks in certi cate form, and make broker-to-broker transfers to optimize charitable contribution bene ts and capital gains savings.
By signing up for online giving, either through your bank or our website, you can ensure your gift is automatically transferred on the day(s) of your choosing. This is an easy way to make your giving hassle-free and consistent.
Cash Flow Gifts
You can give signi cantly by contributing smaller amounts at higher frequencies. Weekly, bi-monthly or monthly giving allows substantial gifts to be reached in smaller steps.
Some easy lifestyle adjustments can help allow you to increase your giving to God’s work. Diverting funds from your budget for entertainment, dining out, subscriptions, etc., can help you free up funds to have a signi cant impact on your giving.
Delayed Non-Essential Purchases
Forgoing some big purchases, such as automobiles, vacations, clothing, trips, etc., for a few years can create substantial giving opportunities.
Raises, Bonuses, Extra Work Income
Dedicating forthcoming raises or bonuses
is a creative method for increased giving. Taking a second or part-time job, utilizing your marketable hobbies or skills, or working overtime can create extra revenue you can funnel into God’s kingdom.
Any interest income, payments from rental properties, or monies from other income- producing assets can provide a source for increased giving.
Consider selling unused items, hosting a garage sale or holding an online auction and giving the proceeds toward FORWARD. The sale of major assets, such as a house, car, land or a business can also provide previously untapped revenue for giving.
Tax Refunds & Savings
Added giving to Vintage Church can create tax savings. By giving these tax refunds and savings back to God’s work, you can increase your total giving.
Freedom From Debt
As you look ahead to the next couple of years, you may discover some current loans or debt obligations that will be ful lled. By investing the money you would have been paying on a car or credit card balance once it’s paid off, you can free up additional funds to give.
Charitable Giving Resources
Reviewing your charitable gifts in light of the kingdom of God affords a resource for signi cant giving. For example, you might usually give to other causes and non-pro ts. Consider diverting those gifts to FORWARD during your pledge, and resume these contributions afterward.
You might be able to make a signi cant donation by using the products or services of your business as a resource for giving.
