End of the Year Giving

End of the Year Giving.jpg

The end of the year will be here before we know it, which means tax season is just around the corner. In order for your donations to be included in your 2017 giving statement, here are a few tips to remember with your end of the year giving:

1. All donations being mailed must be postmarked by the Post Office on or before December 31st in order to be reflected in your 2017 giving statement. If you would like to mail your year-end giving, you may mail your check to 930 25th St., Cleveland, TN 37311.

2. All donations given in church services may be given through Sunday, December 31st and still be reflected in your 2017 giving statement. 

3.    All donations given in the office must be given by December 21st as our offices will be closed December 25-January 2 in observance of the holidays.

4. If you use our mobile app or give through the website, give on or before December 27th to insure processing of your donation before the 31st. It takes a few days for Easy Tithe to process online giving using the mobile app and the website, which could result in your donation not being reflected in the Easy tithe reports we receive.

The 2017 giving statements will be mailed by January 31, 2018. If you have any questions, please call the church office for more information. Thank you for your faithful giving in 2018, we appreciate each of you and your commitment to Living Word.
