Retreat Scholarships

In choosing to support the retreats of CBC you are helping to support a ministry of CBC and while your gift may certainly be preferenced for a particular trip participant, it may not be restricted to benefit a specific individual only. Gifts that are such restricted are considered to be earmarked and the IRS does not consider them to be tax-deductible donations. If the intent of the gift is to benefit the ministry and not a particular individual, the gift is indeed considered to be a tax-deductible charitable contribution. Contributions to retreats are solicited with the understanding that Calvary Baptist Church has complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds. Calvary Baptist Church will attempt to honor gifts preferenced to support particular workers (trip participants), but the final decision on the use of all funds rests with the organization.
