The Gift Profile Guide reflects the types and number of gifts needed to raise $2.5 million! That’s a lot. We are and will be totally dependent upon God to realize a miracle like that. But, if we seek Him and allow Him to work through our sacrificial giving over three years, it’s possible to meet the goal! Your gift matters to God. Remember, it is “Not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice”. That means someone may give over $100,000 to match the sacrifice of another who gives $1,000. God knows the degree of sacrifice each of us will make for Him. He is the one who will bless us. No one else will know what you give except those who now take care of our records of giving. They have been faithful to keep confidentiality and will continue to do so. The Guide suggests there is a giving level for all of us. Pray and ask God, “Where do I fit?”
The “Creative Strategies in Giving” pamphlet will suggest several ways to discover dollars to give sacrificially.
