Calculating your church CORE contribution:

  1. Start with the amount for the church’s total receipts/donations.
  2. Subtract any Designated Funds – including Giving Streams, other designated giving (missions, buildings, debt reduction, short-term projects, etc.)
  3. Subtract any Special Offerings given to a registered Canadian charity outside of the Local Church (World Relief, EFC, other charitable organizations)
  4. Subtract any Bequests to the Local Church (as this is a designated gift)
  5. The Sub Total – Donations less Designated Giving – is what you base the CORE upon
  6. Multiply this by 10% – modeling the Tithe of non-designated giving
  7. The Balance is your church’s CORE Remittance
