Opportunities to Give

Transforming Ourselves as we Transform the World
As our lives have been changed we are changing the world! Week by week, we hear heartwarming accounts of individuals whose lives have been transformed by MCC’s liberating message of God’s unconditional love. Year after year, as we grow in our personal lives we grow equally in our potential to make a difference in the lives of others. Our acts of caring, service to those in need, and advocacy for justice have touched thousands in our community and many more around the world. All of this is made possible through the progressive, positive, practical spirituality of Sunshine Cathedral MCC.

Will I get a receipt of my giving?
Yes. The Sunshine Cathedral MCC is recognized by the IRS as a qualified tax-exempt organization.

In January, each donor who gave $250 or more to the Sunshine Cathedral in the previous calendar year is provided an annual charitable gift receipt in accordance with IRS regulations. Receipts for amounts less than $250 are available on request.

How late in the year can I make a donation and receive a credit for this year’s taxes?
Per IRS regulations, contributions for each year must be received or postmarked by December 31 of that year in order to receive donation credit for that year’s tax purposes.

Where do my donations to Sunshine Cathedral go?
General Operating Fund: Donations to Sunshine Cathedral support its General Operating Fund. This fund makes possible the many day-to-day ministries and services of the church.

Special funds: Periodically, opportunities to designate a donation to a specific purpose become available. Examples of such purposes include the Building Fund and Capital Campaign; Christmas Eve Sponsorships; or special initiatives such as the MCC Global Justice Institute

To designate your contribution for such a specific purpose simply indicate the name of the purpose or initiative on the memo line of your check or on your offering envelope.

Good stewardship of your giving.
We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift, “for we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the [Divine], but also in the eyes of others.” 2 Corinthians 8.20-21

The Board of Directors, the staff, and church leaders work hard to assure that all of our resources are used carefully and wisely.

You can see monthly financial reports and the Annual Report of the Sunshine Cathedral with year-end financial statements at www.sunshinecathedral.org in the “Mission Possible” section under “Financial & Administrative News”.

Included with the Annual Report is a Ministry Plan for the current year which projects the ministries and resources to achieve our mission and vision.
