Deacon Offering for Funeral Expenses of a Pastor
My church sent out an email telling members that all money collected in the next Deacon offering will be sent to a Pastor's family to help pay for his funeral expenses.
This was in response from a request from our Presbytery asking for help with this individual's family who has to pay his funeral costs.
Is the money collected Tax Deductible or not? I believe it is not since a notice went out stating that an individual will benefit from the donation.
