Thank you

Your gift changes lives

One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. Proverbs 11:24-25

Giving FAQs

How much do I give?
Many times we tend to look at the size of the gift or the goodness of the cause. But Jesus measured generosity by a different standard: the condition of the giver’s heart. The best place to begin is by giving 10 percent of your income, which was modeled for us in the Old Testament. Some may want to start with more or less, but it's often best to begin with a set percentage on a regular basis.

Key things to do before giving:

- Ask God for direction.

- Choose a percentage and commit to it.

-Remember everything you have belongs to God—the act of giving is simply offering back to God what is already his.

- What is the best way to give?

-We believe that online giving is the easiest and most cost efficient way to give. It's automatic, secure, and immediately reflects in your giving record.

Can I designate my giving to a specific fund or ministry?
Currently we have a General Fund for ministry expenses, Exponential 2.0 Fund for our building expenses, and a Designated Fund for Community Care and other specific expenses. We ask you to support New Hope through any of these three funds. The church staff and board carefully consider how our funds will be distributed among our ministries in a way that keeps our mission and most important values at the forefront. If you would like to support a specific ministry, it's important you designate it in a memo or notes section with your gift. If not designated, gifts will be attributed to the General Fund.

Invest

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, donations are tax deductable. Estates, Charitable Trusts, and Annuities Donating assets that have appreciated in value may provide potential tax benefits. When you give appreciated assets such as stock — rather than just cash — to 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations like New Hope, you are generally exempt from paying capital gains tax. It’s a good way to store up treasure in heaven while also maximizing the resources entrusted to us while on the earth. If you’d like to donate to New Hope or designate New Hope as part of your estate, contact Brian Larson at 763.552.7979 or email [email protected] New Hope has an account with Newton Financial Solutions in Cambridge that stocks, bonds, annuities, and charitable trusts can be transferred into.

Exponential 2.0 Campaign

At New Hope, our desire is to continually pay down the remaining 1.5 million on our mortgage. Through this Exponential 2.0 campaign, 90% of the funds will go directly toward our principle. By getting rid of our mortgage it frees us financially for future ministry. That’s nice! We also believe God says to “go,” so in the Fall of 2019 we will be expanding and opening New Hope-Braham. 10% of our Exponential 2.0 funds will go toward our next step in reaching Isanti county and beyond.

New Hope wants to live intentionally, seeing God’s kingdom expanding more and more! I invite you to be intentional as well and join us on this great adventure.

We are so thankful to those who have faithfully given over the previous years to make the vision and mission of New Hope reality. It has been truly remarkable! Over the next 2 years of this Exponential 2.0 campaign we would like to make Braham as our destination while still decreasing our mortgage commitment.

By living a life of intention, we will reach more hurting people, point more children and youth to Christ, and provide another welcoming church home to another community. How awesome is that!
