                                         Short Term Mission Projects
                                           Contribution Guidelines

1.       The Missions Ministry Team shall evaluate all applicants for fundraising for short term
         mission trips.

2.       Upon approval by the Missions Ministry Team each applicant may personally solicit
         those who might make a contribution to the church Mission Trip Scholarship Fund to
         help offset the costs of participants.

3.       Applicant may send out letters of solicitation seeking financial support for mission trips.

         A.       The letter must identify the solicitor
         B.       The letter must clearly state that the solicitor has been approved by the Missions
                  Ministry team.
         C.       The letter must clearly state the terms of making contributions through the
                  solicitor to the church Mission Trip Scholarship Fund.

                  1.        The solicitor is the collector of the contributions.
                  2.        The solicitor may receive assistance for his/her mission trip from the
                            Mission Trip Scholarship Fund but the church is not bound to provide
                            assistance (which makes the solicitation tax deductible).
                  3.        The contribution check is to be made payable to the XYZ CHURCH
                            Mission Scholarship Fund.
                  4.        The contribution is tax deductible through the church.
                  5.        The name of the solicitor is NOT to appear on the check. In the event this
                            does occur, the gift is not tax deductible and will be returned to the
                            contributor.
                  6.        Upon collecting all the funds the solicitor compiles a listing of
                            contributors and amounts and turns in to the Missions Office of the
                            church.

4.       Upon receipt of the solicited contributions by the missions office of the church from the
         solicitor, the office shall tally the contributions and issue a receipt to the solicitor.

5.       The missions office shall then record the solicitor’s name and amount collected in a
         ledger.

6.       The missions office shall forward all contributions to the finance office batched as
         received from the solicitor, MARKED FOR CONTRIBUTION CREDIT.
