Gift Clubs

Gift clubs are categories or gift levels that a ministry establishes to enhance giving (donation) options.

Gift clubs typically involve different levels of membership based on donated dollar levels such as bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, president’s, and founder’s clubs. Different levels are associated with different benefits, such as newsletters, dinners, lapel pins, and other tokens of appreciation. 

The names of givers qualifying at various gift club levels are often published in an annual report or program book.

For tax-deductibility on membership benefits, see IRS Publication 526.
