I've made a Cascading pledge, how can I give toward my commitment?
If you wish to make a monetary donation, you can give via cash, check, or online. Just be sure to specify that it's for Cascading. For non-cash donations, contact Heather Mustonen.
Is there a difference between a pledge and a gift?
Yes. The pledge is what you are committing to give and gifts are amounts given toward your pledge. For accounting purposes we record the income when the commitments are received, not when the actual money comes in. Therefore we track both in the system. Once you've made your pledge you will also need to set up your giving if you wish to do so online.
If I give via check, do I need to write separate checks for my regular tithe and my Cascading gift?
You can write separate checks or you can write one check. Just be sure to write in the memo line how much is for your regular tithe and how much is for Cascading.
How do I give online?
To give online, login or create a myBethany account and click on myGiving at the top of the page.
Can I give my regular tithe and my Cascading gift though one online donation?
Yes. You do this by designating your online gift in myBethany to both the general fund and Cascading.
Can I utilize my company's matching gifts program?
Many corporations match employee contributions to eligible charities. Amounts and restrictions vary. Please check with your employer for details or contact Bill Brammer.
