Using Church TAX ID for cancer benefit
A member of our church has cancer and the community is putting on a benefit to help assist with medical costs. The committee putting on the event is requesting to use our 501(c) 3 tax id, as some local businesses will not donate unless they have this.
Is this a good idea? What additional paperwork is involved for us as a church. To vision how this would work all I can see is that the business will donate money to the church, the church would have to issue a receipt, and the church would have to turn around and give back to the member?
uncomfortable feeling participating in this.
