Benevolence Fund Basics

Help your church develop a tax-compliant benevolence ministry. Churches are commanded to love their neighbors and care for the poor. But the church also must abide by tax rules designed to prevent abuse of a benevolence system. This training download from Church Finance Today will help your church design a benevolence program that abides by the tax rules—from best practices for your treasurer to how to help an employee. You'll also receive a sample benevolence policy to get your church started.
