Online Giving Info
All contributions to Real Life Church are held in the strictest confidence. Annual Statements of Contributions are distributed each January, and maybe used as a tax-deductible charitable contribution on your personal tax returns.
The way we give
Giving is an awesome means to worship and thank the Lord who has provided all that we have. We would like to remind you that giving should never be used to manipulate God. We should give from a heart of worship and gratitude for what Christ has accomplished. Additionally, giving by electronic means, although convenient, brings a responsibility to ensure that we are not increasing our indebtedness.

PRIVACY CONTACT INFORMATION
We reserve the right to make changes to this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted.
The purpose of this policy is to define Real Life Church’s refund policy for all contributions. Real Life Church is not legally required to refund any donor contributions. A charitable contribution is a gift, an irrevocable transfer of a donor’s entire interest in the donated cash or property. Contributions must be irrevocable to qualify for a charitable deduction.
Real Life Church is not required to return an undesignated or unrestricted gift. As such, requests for refunds relating to unrestricted gifts will be denied under most circumstances.
Exception A: Refund requests for duplicative or erroneous processing may be allowed.
Exception B: Refund requests of significant gifts (greater than $10,000.00) will be reviewed thoroughly and must be approved by the Church and Pastor’s Council of Real Life Church.
In some instances, a refund of a designated or restricted gift may be allowed if the purpose for which the gift was given will not come to fruition. Real Life Church will contact the giver and ask for the restriction to be removed or if the giver would like his/her contribution returned (ie., donations for mission trips may be refunded if a trip gets cancelled and the donor requests a refund).
