Online Tax-Deductible Giving to the Gospel Trust Fund*
The Gospel Trust Fund is an umbrella tax-deductible fund that allows Christ Church to efficiently manage its tax-deductible donations. You can direct your tax-deductible contribution to the Gospel Trust Fund and authorise Christ Church to apply the donation where it is most needed, or make a fixed or flexible contribution to a specific area (a fixed contribution can only be allocated to the specific area, and a flexible contribution can be reallocated to another tax-deductible fund if the specific area is oversubscribed).
TAX-DEDUCTIBLE GIVING IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL 1 JANUARY 2019. MAKING TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR GOSPEL TRUST FUND HAS REACHED THE MAXIMUM THRESHOLD FOR 2018 BASED ON OUR NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANISATION STATUS.
Reaching Into All the World with the Gospel of Jesus
As a supplement to regular giving, it is also possible to make particular donations in support of our Into All the World initiatives as we seek to train people for gospel work and partner with specific overseas missionary organisations.
