Giving

Giving Is An Act Of Worship

At Heritage, we do all we can to maintain the highest levels of integrity with the resources God gives us through the tithes and offerings of people like you. We have established policies for secure handling and counting of weekly offerings.  We provide giving statements that show your year-to-date giving.  We prepare an annual budget that is adopted by our membership and we conduct an external audit each year.
 
Your contributions go directly to funding the ministry initiatives of Heritage. Through your faithfulness, you are assisting us in fulfilling our mission of “loving God and people passionately and leading people into a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ”.  We are grateful for your financial support of Heritage Church and are encouraged by your confidence in our ministry. May God bless you!

Creative Stewardship

Do you own stock or other appreciated assets?  Do you have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?  Do you pay taxes?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will want to consider these financial facts as 2017 draws to a close.

Fact #1

By donating appreciated assets prior to selling them, you can give in a way that is tax-smart-avoiding steep capital gains taxes while increasing your Kingdom impact.  For example, if you have held stocks for a least a year and a day, you can give them as a charitable gift that is much more tax-efficient than a gift of cash.

Fact #2

If you are at least 70 1/2 years or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 per calendar year, tax-free, from your IRA to a qualified charity. This will help you meet your required minimum distribution (RMD).

 Fact #3

In order to secure your tax deduction for 2017, your gift must be completed by December 31st.

 Armed with these financial facts, you can make the most of the opportunity that year-end giving presents.  Do so today, before it is too late to develop your plan to pay less to the government and more to the Kingdom.
