      Hi James, you may want to look at your church’s bylaws & articles of incorporation to see if they shed any light on requirements as that’s up to each organization to establish and comply with.

    I think the rules of a church Treasurer should be updated and changed because of all the responsibilities whether a small church or a large Church a Treasurer should be given a small love token at least once a year, at least $150 a year which is not much for all the work that a Treasurer does.

      Hi Lin,

      That seems like something worth considering. Treasurers definitely have a lot of responsibility and put in a lot of work. It would be up to each organization to establish its own rules around this.

    As a church treasurer, I appreciate the thought of a “Love Offering”. I personally would not accept such a gift as my service is my Love Offering to God. Furthermore, in the eye of the IRS there is no such thing as a cash or cash equivalent love offering. You can give me a ham, but a gift certificate, gift card, cash, check are all taxable income to the recipient.
