Fundraising Events Policy (Sample) along with 2 other Fundraiser Policy Samples and Forms to download, customize and print for your church...
The Church Fundraising Policy for Events below is very important for churches. This policy allows your church to set guidelines for their church events and keep organization throughout their fundraising processes.
There are two other Church Fundraiser Policy (2 Samples) also below with fundraiser forms to help organize your church fundraisers.
The fundraising policy for church events below includes:
The normal practice of financial operations of the church is for members to give their tithes and offerings through the general budget of the church.
The church welcomes contributions to the fund. The church council must approve fundraising church events.
The administration of the fund, including all disbursements, is subject to the control and discretion of the church council. The church council may consider how to handle recommendations from anyone, but in no event is the church council bound in any way to honor the recommendations.
Donors will not be permitted to recover a contribution on the grounds that the church council failed to honor the donor’s recommendation.
The church recognizes that fundraising church events are a vital part of the church’s purpose and has established this fund as an ongoing fund. Should at any time in the future the church vote to close this fund, all money in the fund at that time will go in the general budget of the church.
All funds must be given in accordance with IRS regulations (e.g. IRS Pub 1828, Pub 526, Pub 557, Pub 4221, and Pub 4573).
Fundraising church events must be for a general event. Funds must be equally divided to all participant. Be non-discriminatory in use (a church group is not discriminatory). Fundraisers will be organized and run completely by volunteers.
Charitable Contribution: Credit will not be given for items received by the church at a fundraising event on the yearly donation disclosure statements
Credit will be given for monetary donations to the general event if given using assigned offering envelope to the designated general event on the yearly donation disclosure statements.
