Mission Fundraising Step-by-Step
God is already providing you the resources necessary for your trip. If you do not have the means readily available, God may desire that you use the need as an opportunity to allow others to participate through prayer and giving, and to grow your own faith and dependence on Him in the process. Here are some suggestions to help you get started:

STEP 1 PRAY. Express your total dependence on the Lord.  Enlist others to pray with you.
STEP 2 BEGIN WITH ASKING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. This is a wonderful opportunity to begin a spiritual conversation with those closest to you. People give to people they know and care about.
STEP 3 MAKE A LIST OF OTHER PROSPECTS. Include church friends, relatives, neighbors, schoolmates, club and civic contacts, and your Christmas card list. How about your doctor, lawyer, or dentist? Do not leave people off your list because you think they will not or cannot support you. God may have other plans. 

Please remember that it is okay to ask your church friends on an individual basis, but funding may not be solicited through broadcast emails or through general announcements in Small Group classes or other church meetings.

STEP 4 WRITE YOUR LETTERS. Your letter should contain a personal greeting from you and then an overview of the trip, your needs, and what your desire is for God to do through you.  Describe where you will be going, what you will be doing, how they can pray for you, and specific financial needs along with deadlines. Try to keep the letter to one page in length and be sure to proof your work!  A sample fundraising letter is at the bottom of this page, along with contribution instructions.

Important Note Regarding Contributions: If the donor, be it you or someone contributing to your trip, would like to receive tax credit, they must submit a check made payable to Cross Pointe Church without anything written in the memo line or anywhere else on the check. All contributions are non-refundable, regardless of whether the individual must cancel his or her participation in the trip.

STEP 5 KEEP TRACK. As you receive gifts, have a simple way to keep track.

By Mail. Simply mail your checks (payable to Cross Pointe) to the church at 1800 Satellite Boulevard Duluth, GA 30097. In order for us to know which participant to record the payment for, the donor or you must attach a note stating the participant’s name. If tax credit is desired, the memo line must be blank but a note must be attached to the check stating which participant the funds are intended to support.

In Person. You may also bring your checks to the Groups Building during our regular business hours of 8:00 – 5:30 Monday through Thursday. 

Online. Online giving is available here. Be sure to put your donation in the Mission Trip Payments box.

Via Managed Missions. You and your donors may contribute via credit card through your public profile in Managed Missions.

Sometimes situations arise late in the preparation stages that prevent a person from attending the trip they planned on being a part of. We are disappointed when this occurs, but we know that God has a plan even when we don’t see or understand it. It is Cross Pointe’s policy that all contributions given are for the overall purpose of furthering our Missions efforts and are therefore non-refundable, regardless of whether or not the member that raised them attends the trip.

STEP 7 SAY THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO SUPPORTED YOU.  Write a personal thank you note when you receive the check and then again after you return from your trip with your results and experiences.
