May I give to a particular ministry?
You may request to have an offering given to a specific church approved ministry using a church offering envelope or by sending a letter in with your offering. You should not place the name of the ministry on the “for” line on your check. The IRS does not like that. In any case, all such request are subject to church leadership approval. The IRS has made it very clear that without that step in place the offering is classified as a “gift” and will not a legitimate tax deduction. If we have an outside speaker and we take a “special offering” those funds received go toward the speaker honorarium minus expenses and is considered legitimate.
