In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations, as well as cash donations, can help our operation and services. We recognize that many times individuals and businesses are more prepared to provide in-kind support than cash donations. In-kind support offers the flexibility of participation in our important mission and can help us provide major services, which equates to costs savings for our church.

In-kind support may include, but is not limited to the following:

  • Office furniture, office paper, durable medical supplies such as walkers and wheelchairs (in good condition), newspaper subscriptions, postage stamps, gift cards to area businesses like office supply stores, paper goods and party supplies for celebrations, batteries for motorized scooters, gas cards for volunteer drivers, bottled water, and packaged snacks.
  • Professional services and expertise such as advertising and marketing services, public relations services, printing, graphic arts and design, building and construction, and computer consultation.

The tax credit for in-kind gifts is governed by the same rules as for cash donations. You will receive a charitable donation receipt, which you must determine based on the fair market value of the property on the date of the gift. To discuss whether we can use your in-kind donation, contact the Senior Pastor's office at 410-233-8559.
