Church Building Fund Policy (Sample)
The Church Building Fund Policy (Sample) below is available free to download, customize and print for your church administration office...
Does your church have donations or contributions come through your church for a new church building or donations towards remodeling an old church building?
The policy below for a building fund is a free tool or guideline to use in your church administration office to create a policy and procedure of your own.
Policies and procedures are very important because they provide a set of guidelines for governing such things as a Building Fund.
If someone in your church wants to donate money towards a specific fund then you will need to have a policy and procedure in place and a committee for this fund just so there are no questions or loose ends that go undone. Make sure your policy is in compliance with your church bylaws and IRS guidelines.
