Church Giving and the new tax law

The new tax law passed by Congress and signed by the president in December may affect church donations.

Although charitable contributions will continue to be deductible under the new law, an increase in the amount of the standard deduction is expected to discourage some donors from claiming the charitable deduction.

End of Year Letter

The three highest giving months for churches are January, May and December, and yes, tax season plays a factor in each. 

With this in mind, we recommend you send out an end-of-year ask letter to your congregation. As 25% of charitable donations are made in the month of December, and January is also a top giving month, an end-of-year ask letter is key to engaging consistent and irregular attendees of your church.

There's just one problem: Many people don't read what's in front of them!
