Donation Policy

Qualified Charity. The Bridge Fellowship is a non-profit corporation and has been determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be tax-exempt as a 501(c)(3) organization.
Unrestricted and Restricted Donations. The Bridge gratefully accepts contributions to support our overall ministry and also recognizes the desire by some donors to restrict the use of their donations to specified purposes, such as specific outreaches of the church, staff support, and other important causes. Restricted donations are used to support the purpose for which they were originally intended until that purpose has been satisfied, after which any excess funds are used for other purposes consistent with our ministry.
Designated Gifts: The religious activities of The Bridge Fellowship are the basis for its tax-exempt status under Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, as well as the basis for allowing tax deductions to donors. Significant problems can arise in connection with so-called “designated gifts.” Specifically, funds donated with the restriction from the donor that such funds be used for the benefit of a private individual (even if that individual is engaged in religious activities, such as a missionary) are not deductible and should not be offered to The Bridge. In these situations, The Bridge does not have the required “control and discretion” over the use of the funds. In order to comply with these principles, we observe the following guidelines:
1. Gifts which are intended to go to another charitable organization should not be given. Such gifts should be made directly to the other charitable organization rather than using The Bridge as a “conduit.”
2. From time to time, we may designate a specific fund for a specific charitable purpose. In these situations, gifts designated for the specific fund or individual faith-supported Christian worker are encouraged.
3. Gifts designated for a category or person included in our budget will be applied to the budgeted amount.
4. Gifts for specific individuals should be avoided. In situations where a name appears in regard to a gift, unless clearly designated otherwise, such gift will be accepted with the understanding that the donor was making a non-binding suggestion only. Such gifts will be utilized as the The Bridge deems advisable (exercising its discretion and control) and not necessarily as suggested by the donor.
5. Gifts that are clearly designated for and limited to the benefit of a particular individual (such as when the gift is accompanied by notations like “use for,” “funds for,” “only for,” “limited to,” etc. a specific fund or individual) cannot be accepted. If tendered, such donations will be considered gifts to the general fund.
6. Gifts designated for specific individuals and designated as “Christmas” or “birthday,” etc. will be passed directly to the designated individual, but no tax-deductible receipt will be issued.

Donations Irrevocable When Made. Tax deductible contributions must be irrevocable; therefore, all donations are non-refundable and non-transferable. We cannot make any exceptions.

Reporting to Donors. Donors will be sent acknowledgements during the year confirming the donation amounts and dates of gifts, as well as calendar year-end tax receipts documenting such gifts as deductible contributions for income tax purposes in the United States in compliance with all applicable USA guidelines. We cannot be responsible for non-delivery of electronic or physical receipts once the receipt is sent. If you believe you have not received proper documentation by January 31st of each year for the prior year, please contact us by February 15th to re-attempt delivery of such documentation. Each donor is advised to consult your personal income tax advisor for the applicability of such contributions in your own circumstances.
