BLC Gift Policy

Sep 07, 2019

Council is grateful to the finance committee for its work in creating a Gift Policy for BLC. A draft policy based on language from the ELCA was presented in July and approval given by Council in August for the final draft. The elements of the gift policy include:

–>1. Gift Acceptance:  outlines who will decide if a gift is accepted and defines what gifts will be considered

–>2. Gift Use:  defines who will decide how gifts are used and outlines process and guidelines to determine how gifts are used

–>3. Ways to Make a Gift:  cash or check, asset transfer, beneficiary designation and deferred gifts.

Please see a member of Council and/or the finance committee if you have specific questions or would like to see a copy of the policy.
