What is the Vaughan Family Legacy Offering*? David and Donna’s long-term commitment to and impact at Whitewater Crossing Christian Church created a legacy that’s worth celebrating! We want to honor their legacy by showering them with a generous financial gift that will help them transition during this next stage of life.
What exactly will the money be used for? All monies received from this offering will go to offset the Vaughan’s ministry expenses and will also cover the cost for David to continue part-time on the Whitewater staff, which will include occasional preaching and weekly coaching of JT and other leaders. Depending on the amount of the offering, some monies might also be allocated to the Vaughan’s future coaching ministry of pastors/pastor's wives across the country.
Will all of the money be given to David and Donna Vaughan? Yes, all funds received will be utilized and allocated to David and Donna and the aforementioned ministry expenses.
Can I give online? Yes, you can give through checks, online, or in the blue boxes any weekend. Just make sure you designate it to the Vaughan Family Legacy Offering.
How long do I have to give my offering? We will start receiving offerings on June 1st, 2022 but if you need extra time to give, you can certainly do so. If you request extra time, it would be helpful for us to know what you plan to give (and when) so we can plan accordingly.
Will David and Donna be aware of what I give? Although they will be made aware of who gave, specific amounts will not be shared.
Is my gift tax-deductible? Absolutely! The offering is being collected and dispersed under the direction of Jess Adkins (Executive Pastor) and Beth Maxey (Finance Director) at Whitewater Crossing. Contributions to the Legacy Offering will be reflected on your annual giving statement.
Can I specify how I want my gift to be distributed? Unfortunately, specifying how you want your contribution to be allocated violates several IRS tax guidelines. Rest assured that your generous contribution will be used for the aforementioned expenses.
*Although this offering is meant to bless the Vaughan’s, they ask that anything contributed be “above and beyond” what you are already giving to Whitewater, so the General Fund is not adversely affected.
