Giving

Giving

At Hempfield, we recognize giving as an act of worship. As stewards of the kingdom of God, we worship God by returning a portion of the resources God has provided to us for the support, strengthening and expansion of the ministry of the church.

Giving is an essential part of our walk with God. The Bible tells us that “God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7) For our members, we encourage the biblical practice of tithing, the returning of 10 percent of one’s income, as the goal of faithful stewardship.

GIVE APPRECIATED STOCK

 The church has a brokerage account for receiving contributions of stock and can provide detailed instructions for making such a gift. Your broker can wire a specified amount of stock to the church’s brokerage account at RBC Wealth Management. Hempfield sells stock donations immediately upon receipt and the proceeds, net of broker’s commissions, are then credited to accounts as directed by the donor. Once the net proceeds of the sale have been received, the church will send an acknowledgement letter stating the type of stock received, the date of receipt, and other necessary information. This is the receipt for any tax deductions that may be available.

giving cryptocurrency

The Church uses Every.org to receive , liquidate and disburse cryptocurrency gifts to Hempfield. By making the contribution to Every.org the donor specifies that the gift is for Hempfield. Every.org receives the gift, provides the tax-deductible receipt to the donor, deducts a processing fee, and remits the balance to the church. As with any donor advised fund, the donor gets credit for the gift on the church records and the gift is recorded as “non deductible”. The gift is credited to the accounts as directed by the donor.

 

Give in Thanks

Whenever you give, offer your thanks to God for the many gifts and resources you have received.
