Are you enthusiastic about giving to this vision, but not sure where to start? Here are some creative ways to help allocate or free up resources so you can be a part of IMAGINE.


Are there things in your life you can take advantage of less frequently? Maybe it’s fewer Starbucks runs or one less dinner out each week. By decreasing a weekly expense, regardless of what it might be, you can save a significant amount to contribute.


Often, there are creative ways to save money. Maybe it’s been a while since you got a quote for an existing service (ie., cell phone and cable service). Perhaps you could do some extra comparison or bargain shopping to save funds. For your kids, it could be as easy as saving extra change to give.


Are there plans you might be making that involve a financial commitment? If so, prayerfully ask God about delaying those plans and using the extra income to contribute.


A great way to contribute is to give existing assets. Consider giving your appreciated assets (stocks, bonds, real estate) to the church. Letting us sell your assets eliminates potential capital gains taxes and may increase after-tax proceeds. Other items such as (Antiques, Jewelry and Sports Memorabilia) are better off being sold and cash is given to the church.


Sample Ideas

  • $150: Buying one less cup of coffee/week for 1 year
  • $500: Family Season Passes
  • $300: Not going to the movies for 1 year
  • $900: Cutting the cable bill for 1 year
  • $1,560: Eating out one less meal a week for 1 year
  • $2,500: Waiting to rennovate a room
  • $7,500: Postponing a trip to Disney World

Would you and your family take time to pray together about what the Lord wants you to give?
