New Covenant Community Church is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-exempt organization. Our Tax ID# is 77-0159317. All donations to New Covenant are tax deductible to the extent that no goods or services were provided in connection with the donation. All donations are received with the understanding that New Covenant Community Church has complete discretion and control over the use of the funds.
As of January 2015 NewCov is trying to become as paperless as possible! In 2014 we went to a fully integrated system that helps you keep better track of your giving throughout the year. Beginning January 2014, all contributions you made were linked to your myNewCov account. If you haven’t already created a log-in and password, please visit http://newcov.ccbchurch.com and click Sign Up. Once you’ve set up your account, your giving statements can be viewed at any time by logging into your account. This new option for viewing your giving statements allows you to better track your giving where applicable and gives you immediate access when you need your statement. All giving information is at your finger tips with the click of a few buttons! We do this in an effort to make your giving easier and more effective for the kingdom. Those who make online or kiosk contributions will be able to see those donations any time they access their online giving account.
By default, donations go into our General Fund. However, you may request that your gift be used for an approved project or program like the ones listed below. Other approved projects or programs may arise periodically throughout the year (for example Tsunami Relief or Gulf Coast Relief).
NewCov currently has four official restricted fund categories:
We will always do our best to not raise more than is needed for a particular project or program, but we can’t always guarantee this is the case. Once a restricted fund’s purpose is met, we will close the fund. But if excess donations have been made, we reserve the right to use those funds for other purposes. All donations are received with the understanding that New Covenant Community Church has complete discretion and control over the use of the funds.
A gift restricted to a specific individual constitutes a person-to-person gift and is not tax deductible. You can restrict your gift for the Benevolence Fund and suggest it be used to help a specific person but this decision will be made by the Pastors and Deacons.
Yes. You can do this through our online giving. When you have created an account to give online, you will see the option to give one time, or to schedule your contributions weekly, monthly, a specific day of the month, as well as other options.
While NewCov does accept credit cards, we strongly encourage our members not to use their credit card for donations, registrations or other transactions if they are unable to pay off their credit card in full each month. We prefer the use of checks and debit cards For those with revolving credit card debt or are simply seeking more information on how to manage their money God’s way, we encourage them to enroll in a NewCov Biblical financial principals class such as Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University”.
Yes! A supply of envelopes is also available at the Welcome Center or from the ushers. If you typically place your tithe check in an offering basket during worship services, you do not need to use an envelope. If you are giving cash, we encourage you to use an envelope and write your name and address on the outside if you want to receive a tax deduction for the gift. Please do not send cash in the mail.
