Giving FAQs and Suggested Giving Plans

 

1. How much should I consider giving to the capital campaign?
Answer:
How much you give is entirely a personal decision and any amount large or small is deeply appreciated and needed if we are to succeed. However, if you are looking for suggestions on the amount to give to the capital campaign, standard guidance is to consider a gift two to three times more than what you currently give to NEC on an annual basis. Gift plans and payment schedules are included in the table below.

2. Does my Capital Campaign gift replace my regular giving?
A:
We hope you prayerfully consider continuing with your regular gifts and tithes in addition to giving to the Capital Campaign. Regular contributions from our members are absolutely essential for NEC to maintain daily operations, pay bills, provide mission support, etc.

3. What is a three-year pledge?
A:
A pledge is a dollar amount you are spiritually committing to over a three-year period and can be paid in monthly, quarterly, or annual payments. Unlike private business, a pledge is considered collateral for the church construction loan. Pledges are also tax deductible gifts. We will begin accepting pledges for the NEC 20/20 Capital Campaign in the coming weeks.

4. Is my pledge to the NEC Capital Campaign legally binding?
A:
While the pledge is not a legal document, it is an act of faith to carry on the future of New England Chapel and to provide for future generations. It is a spiritual and financial pledge that one undertakes with generosity and commitment.

5. Can NEC accept gifts other than cash?
A:
Yes. Gifts of stock and certain other items of value can be donated towards the capital campaign. Please contact NEC Finance Administrator Jen Mayer to inquire about these options.

6. When do I make my payments? Do I need to make a payment when I make my pledge?
A:
Once you have settled on a pledge amount to the capital campaign, your pledge payments will begin immediately. An initial contribution is encouraged with a completed pledge form (coming soon). Pledges will enable NEC to obtain a construction loan.

7. What if I want to sponsor a gift or memorialize a specific part of the new building project?
A:
Gifts or pledges to fund a specific part of the new building and/or memorial gift options are welcome and can be discussed with Pastor Mike Laird. Pastor Mike, in consultation with the Elders and Fundraising Committee, has final discretionary authority in memorial and specific gift options. Memorials can be reserved by contacting Pastor Mike at the NEC Office - 508-541-9078.

8. How will donors, gifts and pledges be recognized for the new building?
A:
The current proposal for donor recognition is for a special display to be featured in the newly constructed facility that recognizes individual donors, families or memorializes loved ones. Other avenues of recognition or memorial are at the Pastor’s discretion in consultation with the Elders and Building Committee.
