Church Financial Statements
Is the church allowed to show, publicly, what each individual tithed at the end of the year?
No. Contributions MUST be kept strictly confidential.
Excerpt from Church Contributions...
Confidentiality is so important when it comes to contributions. Some churches have their counters and staff sign written statements of confidentiality before they can even begin their duties.
That is up to the individual churches; however, confidentiality of information—especially individual contributions—must be stressed regarding its importance.
Some well-meaning individuals may not think twice about telling their spouse about so-and-so’s wonderful gift to the church. Then the spouse—not bound to the same confidentiality rules—may tell others and then the ethical boundaries of confidentiality have been unintentionally crossed.
So written or oral, confidentiality must be discussed with all staff—volunteers or paid.
