Gifts of cash or checks: Remember, the final offering of 2018 will be received during the morning services on Sunday, December 30th. If you should miss this offering, the following are three convenient ways to get your contribution to the church on time to be counted in 2018’s giving:

1. Online by Monday, December 31st, 11:59 pm, at

2. Hand delivered to our security personnel by Monday, 12/31, 11:59 pm, who will place the money directly into a secure location with  handwritten date & time. Call (813) 264-8711 for security to meet you at a door on campus.

3. Mailed and postmarked by USPS by Monday, 11:59 pm on December 31, 2018.

As a reminder, contributions that we receive in our possession after Monday, December 31, 2018, or postmarked after December 31, 2018, will be credited to 2019 giving even if the check is dated in 2018.

2018 Giving Update: For planning purposes, if you want to know how much you have given so far this year, please call Sharon Hessinger at (813) 264-8785 and she will be happy to assist you. Also, if you are new to our church and want to receive offering envelopes for future giving, contact Sharon Hessinger. Donor information and contributions are kept in strict confidence.

Special Donations: If you would like to make a donation of securities, real estate, a vehicle or other property, contact Jason Evans at (813) 264-8709.

Corporate Matching Incentive Program: You may want to inquire with your employer to see if they offer a gift matching program.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs):  When planning your IRA withdrawal strategy, you may want to consider making a gift to Idlewild through QCD.  A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA custodian, payable to Idlewild.  QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, as long as certain rules are met.  Please check with your tax advisor to determine if you qualify for QCDs.
