IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO ENSURE CONTRIBUTIONS CAN BE CLAIMED FOR A GIVEN TAX YEAR.
All charitable contributions must be claimed in the year they are received by Grand Point Church. The received date will be included on your annual giving statement.
IF MAILING CONTRIBUTION
The envelope containing your contribution MUST BE postmarked by 12/31 in order for it to be claimed on your taxes for that year. Even if the contribution does not reach the church until January, as long as it is postmarked on or before 12/31, it will be credited as a donation for that year.
IF DELIVERING CONTRIBUTION
- TO OFFICE: please deliver on or before the last business day of the month (it’s a good idea to call ahead in case office may be closed due to special holiday schedules).
- AT CHURCH: please place in an offering plate no later than the last Sunday of December, as this will be the final offering collection of the year (pay attention for special announcements depending on when the last Sunday and the Christmas holiday falls).
IF MAKING AN ONLINE CONTRIBUTION
To ensure your gift is processed in time for year end, please submit your online transaction no later than 2 business days earlier than 12/31.
