We ask Members to contribute to SGC on an ongoing basis.
We are also committed to facilitating ceremony for all, regardless of economic status.
Your Donation is Tax Deductible
The Sacred Garden Community is registered as a California Nonprofit Religious Corporation (Cal. Corp. Code § 9111). This makes your donations tax deductible and we will send you a recognition of your contribution at the end of the year for tax purposes. The Nonprofit Religious Corporation Law authorizes the formation of a corporation primarily or exclusively for "religious purposes". Cal. Corp. Code § 9111. Among other things, the Attorney General has far less supervisory powers with respect to a religious corporation than a nonprofit or public benefit corporation.Aug 31, 2022
The IRS automatically recognizes churches as 501(c) (3) charitable organizations if they meet the IRS requirements. There is no need for churches to seek formal recognition from the IRS or submit annual information returns (though they have the option to do so).
Sacred Garden Community would like to make it easy to donate to the causes we believe in.
Have you benefited from a connection to the Divine through the Sacred Garden Community? Has SGC impacted your life in a positive way? If so, we could use your support. The Sacred Garden Community is committed to supporting everyone who seeks divine presence, all of our monthly activities and ceremonies are offered on a sliding scale, so all have access. It is our greatest wish that economic barriers do not stand in the way of being a part of our community. We support members who face economic hardship with all of the standard benefits and privileges of membership.
We are currently seeking support to offset the cost of our scholarship program. Your help will sustain training and management of our ministry and staff, practitioner instruction and training, and ensure the sustainability of core church operations, cover membership and ceremonies for marginalized individuals who do not have the means for membership.
Help honor our commitment to facilitate ceremonies for all, regardless of economic status by donating to our scholarship fund today. No gift is too small. Your contribution helps us move toward actualization as a community.
