Donor-Designated Gifts Policy
In general, it is Bama Wesley’s policy to only accept gifts to our four standing funds:
- Our General Fund, which provides for our day-to-day operations and programming.
- Our Capital Fund, which is used for the purchase, repair, maintenance, replacement, and similar needs related to our facility and major equipment (such as kitchen and audio/video equipment).
- Our Meals Fund, which provides funding for our twice-weekly meals offered free of charge to students.
- Our Scholarships Fund, which provides financial assistance to students for Bama Wesley-sponsored events such as retreats and mission trips.
It is our experience that allowing gifts to be designated beyond these four funds can potentially leave them inaccessible if the need or program to which funds are given ceases to exist. By limiting donations to these funds, you as the donor have some discretion over their usage while allowing us the flexibility to ensure that funds remain available for ongoing needs. Exceptions to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and requests should be directed to email@example.com.
