The Four Types of Charitable Giving

All charitable giving can be classified as (1) Social and Fun, (2) Honored Obligations,(3) Strategic and Transformative, and (4) Passionate Giving.

Social and Fun: Hosting a party, running in a marathon or supporting girl scouts at cookie time. This type of giving is helping people, but you are having fun in the process.

Honored Obligations: Some believe that the tithe should apply to their estate as well as their annual giving to the church. Supporting your college would come under this category.

Strategic and Transformative: Donating to causes that have a positive impact on society or attempt to solve a social problem. An example might be donating to charities that combat AIDS in Africa.

Passionate Giving: Giving to charities which reflect your deepest held beliefs and ideals. Giving to an organization that wanted to end legalized abortion would be an example.

The Great Outdoors Community Church has established an Endowment Program for the acceptance and distribution of gifts to our various missions. We would hope that you are "passionate" about the Lord’s work here and plan to return a portion of what He has provided so that the good work may continue.
