Fundraising Policy (for Special Purposes)

This policy is intended to provide a structure to ensure that:

  • fundraisers are not so frequent that their impact and financial success is compromised by confusion or fatigue among the congregation members
  • each fundraiser is compatible with the mission of the church
  • the impact on other aspects of church funding is taken into consideration (for example, the annual campaign, a capital campaign, or the Sunday collection), and
  • the tax exempt status of the church is not jeopardized
