Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Vision Builders Program?

The Vision Builders Program is the overarching banner for our Rise & Build, Beyond and Media & Television Initiatives. Vision Builders is responsible for raising the finance needed to facilitate all of these areas of our Church Life.

Can I give to Vision Builders instead of Tithing?

Vision Builders should be seen as giving ‘over and above’ the Tithe.

What if I can’t fulfill my pledge?

Firstly, we encourage people to make realistic pledges. Having done that, we understand that sometimes events happen and for whatever reason people find difficulty in fulfilling their pledge within the timeframe. We suggest that you may still want to fulfill your pledge by breaking it down into smaller amounts over a longer period of time.

I am new to church, should I be giving to Vision Builders? If so, why?

There is no pressure for anyone to give to Vision Builders, nor is there any minimum requirement. New people who would like to give are most welcome, as is anyone who finds that our vision resonates with them.

I am in significant debt, should I pay off my debts or give to Vision Builders?

If you are in ‘significant’ debt, after your tithe the debt should be your next priority. Reducing the debt to a manageable amount (or even clearing it completely) should be attempted as you also make a manageable gift to Vision Builders. Remember no amount is insignificant.

Do you need my details? I wish to remain anonymous.

You may remain anonymous if you wish, and all the details of your giving will be kept confidential. However, you will not be able to claim tax deductibility for your giving as we will be unable to provide you with a record of your contribution, which you will need to submit to the Australian Tax Office.

How do we know where the money goes?

Funds are spent in accordance with the initiatives presented on this information card and as updated during the year. All our accounts are independently audited annually to ensure compliance, and lodged with ACNC.
