REFUNDING A CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION
A charitable contribution (undesignated) will not be returned to the donor. To refund the gift would be contrary to the basic definition of a charitable contribution and could have possible tax implications to the donor and potentially cause a liability to the church.
Refunds on a designated contribution will be handled in the following manner:
• Designated gifts for a fund or special project – Every reasonable effort will be made to use the designated gift for the purpose in which it was designated. However, if the fund or special project no longer exists, the church will make every reasonable effort to contact the donors of such gifts. The purpose of this is to give the donor the option of re-designating the gift to a different fund (or to the general fund) or refunding it. The donor needs to be aware of the possible need to file an amended tax return if the gift is refunded and the deduction was claimed in a previous year. Obviously, this procedure is only appropriate for those donors who can be identified. For donations that cannot be identified, the elders and administrative team will decide how to use the funds.
