YEAR END GIVING
Thank you for considering a special year-end gift to Great Awakenings. Your gift of $500, $100, $50, $25 or any amount will be extremely helpful.
December is an important donation month for our ministry. Between 12%-17% of our annual income is received each year during this month. Every dollar is important to God and us, no matter the size. We trust you will prayerfully and joyfully give as God leads you.
For many years now we have contracted with Stewardship Technology to manage our online giving. They have produced a system that has been simple and secure. Click on the image above “year end giving” and follow the promps. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
All gifts that are postmarked by Saturday, December 30th, or are given online by 11:59 p.m. on the 31st will be counted towards 2017 for tax purposes.
HOW WE ARE FUNDED
Great Awakenings is funded by the donations of fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who are moved by the Holy Spirit. We encourage believers to support their local church with tithes and give to us out of their offerings to the Lord God. Also, we are a nonprofit corporation and have an IRS approved 501c3 tax status. Therefore, when you send us a gift, we will return a tax-deductible receipt.
We strive to use biblical principles in fund raising and manage our funds with the highest degree of integrity. We are run by a board of directors that approves our annual budget and reviews financial reports.

Here is an example of some ways you can support through non-cash assets:
