Frequently Asked Questions
How can I be a part of Vision Builders?
Prayerfully consider the level of giving that you feel is appropriate for you, based on wisdom, and faith. Remember, the philosophy of Vision Builders is equal sacrifice, not equal giving.
Make a formal commitment to give on a Vision Builders commitment card throughout June 2018. Alternatively, you can obtain a commitment card at any time from the Information Desk in the church foyer.
Regular Payment: Making a regular weekly or monthly contribution is one of the most successful ways to fulfill your commitment.
Salary Sacrifice: You can arrange with your employer to make a deduction from your salary each pay.
Direct Credit: This can be arranged through your employer or bank. Your bank can arrange regular transfers that occur automatically. You can also arrange regular payments via Internet Banking. Alternatively, you can choose to make a payment from money currently available or when you receive a work bonus, tax refund or sell an asset.
Online Donation: This is a popular way of giving. Simply choose from one of the buttons above or download the C3 Church App and click on the ‘Online Giving’ tab. Select the ‘Vision Builders’, 'Tax Deductible' or 'Non-Tax Deductible' field, complete the requested information for a ‘one time gift’ or ‘recurring gift’ and continue with ‘next’.

IS IT TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Taxation Benefits: All donations in excess of $2 given to C3 Vision Builders ABN 95 002 558 134 are tax deductible. The real cost of your contribution can therefore be significantly less than the amount donated, however please seek advice from your financial advisor. A Tax Receipt will be issued after the end of the Financial Year.
Other Funds: An account that does not have tax deductibility status has been set up for those who do not need or wish to take advantage of the taxation benefits. Money given to this account can be used for Vision Builder initiatives beyond the purpose approved by the Australian Taxation Office.
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. Please note, Vision Builders no longer financially supports Christians Against Poverty.
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 will be required as evidence for the Australian Taxation Office.
HOW DO THE FUNDS GET ALLOCATED?
Funds are spent in accordance with the initiatives presented on this website and as updated during the year. All our accounts are independently audited annually to ensure compliance, and lodged with ACNC.
