Donors are encouraged to make a gift through various means including the Shared Ministries Fund, the Congregational Foundation, and Planned Giving vehicles.

NACCC Shared Ministries Giving

Member churches, individual donors, and associations committed to Congregationalism can provide a financial contribution to the overall operations and programming of the NACCC through the Shared Ministries Fund (SMF). Each member church of the NACCC is required to make an annual contribution to SMF, which directly supports the NACCC operations, programs, resources, and services. We ask that churches prayerfully give at their “Fair Share” level or above ($13 per member annually). Member church donations assure the continuation of educational programs, church resources, fellowship opportunities, and administrative support that churches and their members find so valuable.

The Congregational Foundation

The Congregational Foundation was established to raise funds and administer endowments that benefit the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches. It engages in ongoing fundraising and development activities on behalf of the Association whose reason for being is to help member churches to be all that they can be. The Foundation oversees several major endowments that have been created to directly support the many NACCC programs, services and resources offered to its member churches.

Contributing to the NACCC College Fund

Olivet College, Piedmont University, and the NACCC have partnered together to create the NACCC College Assistance Fund. This fund encourages donors  to support students’ engagement in important high impact programs and to meet students’ other more immediate needs.

Some college students may find themselves unable to engage in high impact experiences, such as: service projects, study abroad, and research internships due to financial hardship. And, sometimes, students lack finances to meet their daily ongoing expenses, such as: books, food, or housing. This Fund has been created to provide funding to those students in need.

As always, please consult your tax advisers about the best way to support the NACCC/CF in your situation.

Therefore, please alert the NACCC/CF Development Department before making your IRA rollover gift, so that we can identify and acknowledge your gift correctly and promptly. Sample letters for your use are available below.

Planned Giving

A Planned Gift is any major gift made to a non-profit, in a person’s lifetime or at death which is part of the donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Estate and gift planning incorporates many different kinds of financial and tax benefits. By making a planned gift or bequest to the National Association or the Foundation you are helping to insure its longtime health and success.

The 1620 Society

The 1620 Society was created to recognize donors who have already made the decision to leave a legacy through their estate and gift planning. We hope you will consider joining the many Society members who have already made the decision to leave their legacy through a planned gift.

WILLS AND BEQUESTS
provide a simple way to make a gift that will keep on giving after your life-time. Designating the charity in a life insurance policy or retirement account, are commonly used. Declaring a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate to a charity is also used. The charity will be notified of your gift upon your death.

LIFE INSURANCE 
policy which is no longer needed for family protection, or is specifically purchased to benefit the organization can be given (during your lifetime) to the NACCC or CF. This gift will benefit the organization upon your death.
