Designated Donation Policy

Funds can be accepted only for programs or projects that are within the purposes of Grant Memorial Baptist Church and that have been approved by the Deacon Board.

Each gift designated toward a board-approved program or project will be used as designated.

When any given need has been met, or where projects cannot be carried out for reasons beyond the ability of the Deacon Board to control, the donor agrees that gifts designated for such purposes may be used by Grant Memorial Baptist Church in carrying out its other programs.
