Designated giving represents that financial support and out-reach “over and above” Unified Mission Giving. The support our member churches provide to the special “designated giving” supports many special ministries and out-reach to extend the glorification of God and our Lord Jesus Christ. “Designated Giving” support 5 principal categories:
There are many advantages to providing your “Designated Giving” through PEVA. This method allows your church to write just one check with their remittance document to cover their Unified Mission Giving (pledge, Code 1000) and “designate” any number of additional giving on the same remittance. Cheaper and Simpler. When PEVA receives your remittance, the indicated amount is recorded to the appropriate remittance code indicated on your remittance form. Many churches select the same “designated” recipient. Therefore, PEVA is able to consolidate all contributions to the same “designated” recipient and send a single check to that recipient. Cheaper and Simpler. Whenever, PEVA forwards funds to a “designated” recipient, a cover letter is sent to the “designated” recipient identifying which church and the associated amount is included in the consolidated check. This consolidation also saves the recipient from having to process many, many smaller checks yet having full knowledge of who the “real donor” is. Cheaper and Simpler. Therefore, sending your “Designated Giving” through PEVA as part of your monthly remittance is a Win-Win-Win.
We hope that you find these “thumbnail sketches” of designated giving opportunities helpful in developing your “Designated Giving” plan.
