DESIGNATED FINANCIAL GIVING NUMBERS If you desire the Church Financial Secretary to keep a record of your giving amount for tax purposes, you may request a giving number to be assigned to you. This enables you to write this number on one of the envelopes available at each entrance in which you can place your cash or check. You may also designate your gift to the areas of the budget as is on the envelope. To receive a giving number, ask Marcia Heigel, the church secretary. In this process only the financial secretary knows your total giving amounts. You will receive a year-end receipt that meets IRS stipulations.
