RockPointe’s new online giving platform makes giving back to the church easier than ever. Click the button above to make a one-time or recurring gift via Visa debit or credit card.

 

How do I give?

Several safe and secure methods of giving provide convenient ways to offer our tithes and financially contribute to the sites of RockPointe Church.

  • Weekend services: Simply place cash or cheques in an offering envelope and then place in the offering plate during the collection at any weekend service. Be sure to include your name and address on the cheque or envelope, so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes. Designate the Fund (or Other) to which you would like the offering applied.
  • Online giving: Online giving via the church website allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a cheque or savings account using your credit or Visa debit card. You can set up online giving either as a one-time donation or a recurring gift. Online giving is not only easy, it's also safe and secure. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend service.
  • Text Engagement: With your phone:
    • text “rpcbp” to 77977 (for Bearspaw)
    • text “rpcbr” to 77977 (for Bowridge)
    • text “rpcwh” to 77977 (for Westhills)
  • You’ll receive a text back with instructions to start giving. Make sure that your phone does not autocorrect. Tap the link, and you’re ready to give. For those who wish, you can then download the Pushpay app or simply continue to use the text engagement version. If you download the app, be sure to make our church a favourite by selecting the star in the upper right corner of the app to easily find it later!
  • Online bank giving: Online giving via your bank’s website allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a cheque or savings account by registering RockPointe as a “payee” (BMO, RBC, TD, CIBC). You can set up online giving either as a one-time donation or a recurring gift. Online giving through your bank is not only easy, it's also safe and secure. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend service. Please ensure to advise our church financial administrator how you would like your donation designated.
  • Pre-Authorized giving: Pre-authorized giving via your bank allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a cheque or savings account. For more information, contact finance@rockpointe.ca.
  • By mail: Mail your donation to RockPointe’s Bearspaw Site at

    255024 Lochend Rd,
    Calgary, AB
    T3L 2R2

    Be sure to include your name and address on the cheque or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes. Designate the Fund to which you would like the offering applied.

 

Where do my donations to RockPointe go?

Ministry Fund: This fund supports the work of RockPointe in Calgary and surrounding areas. It funds ministries such as our weekend services, RockPointe Kids, RockPointe Youth, Adult Ministries, Community Engagement and RockPointe’s operations.

Compassion Fund: Donations to the Compassion Fund allows RockPointe to help those in our communities who are in need.

Missions Fund: The Mission Fund supports the work of RockPointe Church and its missionaries around the world including:

  1. helping our C&MA missionaries operating in cross cultural settings overseas
  2. helping our Canadian C&MA activities, and
  3. funding our RockPointe global initiatives (including missionaries and partners).

Development Fund: Donations to the Development Fund are utilized to:

  1. pre-pay any current long term debt held by RockPointe
  2. fund new capital needs and
  3. to create a reserve for anticipated future capital projects (land or facilities).

Special funds: Periodically, opportunities to designate a donation to a specific ministry initiative become available. Our annual Thanksgiving Offering and specific Short Term Mission Trips are two examples of ministry-initiative funds with specific start and end dates. To designate your contribution to a specific fund, simply indicate the name of the initiative (e.g., Thanksgiving) on the other line of your offering envelope or online donation.

 

How does RockPointe uphold financial accountability?

RockPointe is committed to honoring God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability to ensure the financial integrity of RockPointe remains above reproach. We accomplish this through a system of internal controls and an internal budgeting and reporting process.

  • An annual financial review is performed by an independent certified public accounting firm.
  • Anyone may request a copy of RockPointe’s most recent financial statements. Contact our Financial Administrator at finance@rockpointe.ca to ask general questions about our financial practices.

 

How can I make non-cash donations?

Many people find creative ways to make contributions to RockPointe’s ministries through non-cash gifts. Here are a few options to consider:

  • Publically listed securities (shares): For any publically traded stock or mutual fund that you donate, 0% of the capital gain on the shares that are donated will be taxable. This means that when you make a donation of shares to RockPointe, you do not need to declare as taxable income any of the capital gain that you would have otherwise included if you had sold the shares and given the cash proceeds instead. For additional information, email finance@rockpointe.ca or call (403) 851-0011.
  • Vehicle donations: RockPointe’s Car Exchange Ministry is committed to meeting transportation needs of people who are unable to meet those needs themselves. When you donate your used car to the Car Ministry, you receive a tax deduction and someone in need of transportation receives the reliable transportation they have been praying for. Visit RockPointe’s “Need Help” page on our website for additional information, or call (403) 851-0011.
  • Other: Other giving options include life insurance, retirement assets, bequests, and charitable gift fund donations. For additional information, contact finance@rockpointe.ca or call (403) 851-0011.

 

How late in the year can I make a donation and receive a credit for this year's taxes?

Per CRA regulations, contributions for each year must be received or postmarked by December 31 of that year in order to receive a donation credit for that year's tax purposes. Please submit your online, mailed, or in-person donation accordingly.
