SPRING FUNDRAISING EFFORT
GIVE BIG 2018
ABOUT GIVE BIG:
YAA will be participating in the Gallatin Valley Give Big event for non-profits. It is a 24-hour online and live celebration of giving created to connect generous community members with the cause they care about most.
The goal is simple – inspire our people to come together all at once, to show pride in an important cause by making a contribution to support the life-changing work of a local nonprofit organization in Gallatin county.
This event begins at 6PM on May 3rd and ends at 6PM on May 4th.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED!
Donate for Give Big: During the 24 hour period, simply follow the link below to YAA’s Give Big Profile page. Make a donation by selecting a suggested amount or put in an amount of your choosing.
Become a Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser: This is someone who rallies around our cause to fund-raise on our behalf. YAA creates your fundraising page once you have informed them that you would like to be a P-2-P Fundraiser. Your page is a spin-off of YAA’s main Give Big Profile. You share your page link with your network to expand the reach of our organization and bring in new donors. If you believe in the work we do please help us expand our reach to more supporters. If you are interested in becoming a Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser contact our office at (406) 763-4727.
Pledge a Match or a Challenge: A ‘match’, is a pool of funds that was donated from a person or company that is intended to be used to double the amount raised by our organization. A ‘challenge’ is a gift that can be unlocked by meeting a goal. This goal can be measured by total dollars given or total donors engaged. Contact the YAA office at (406) 763-4727 if you would like to pledge a challenge or a match.
Online giving is a safe and easy way to invest in all God is doing through Yellowstone Alliance Adventure.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How can I give by check?
You may give during services or send a check to 13707 Cottonwood Canyon Rd.
Bozeman, Montana 59718.
Q: Is it safe to give online?
Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Paypal, who securely processes our online giving.
Q: What types of bank accounts can I give from?
You can give online from your checking account, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express and eCheck.
Q: Are there any fees involved with giving online?
Not to you. You will not pay any fees with an online gift.
Q: What about End-of-Year Donations?
A: The general IRS rule is that a donation is effective when delivered. This means that a check received by YAA in January, 2018 cannot be deducted in 2017, even if backdated to 2017. One exception – checks mailed and postmarked by December 31, 2017 are deductible in 2017 even though not received until 2018. The donor is responsible for ensuring that the U.S. Postal Service postmarks the envelope by December 31, 2017. If in doubt, we suggest that you hand-deliver the mailing envelope to the post office and have them stamp the postmark on the envelope. Online donations may be made until midnight on December 31. Please Do Not file your taxes before receiving your contribution statement from YAA, which is sent out in January.
