Frequently asked questions
What do our assessment dollars fund?
Assessment dollars fund much of the important infrastructure costs associated with operating our denomination, along with a portion of program related resources. Examples of infrastructure costs include, but are not limited to, funding for General Synod, the general secretary’s office, information technology, and communication resources such as the website and RCA Today magazine, and many more programs.
Assessment dollars cover a lot of services and resources, but they don’t cover everything. In fact, assessment dollars make up only 33 percent of the RCA’s budget. Aside from what’s contributed by a few investment funds, the rest of the RCA’s budget is raised through the generosity of people like you.

May I designate my gift to a specific ministry area?
Yes, you may select any area of ministry that is currently associated with the RCA’s work. If you are interested in supporting a specific ministry area, but are unsure about where it is lodged in the RCA, you are invited to contact Alex DeWaal at (800) 968-3943, ext. 308, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
What will my gift to the RCA support?
Unless designated for a specific ministry area, your gifts to the RCA support the RCA On-Mission Fund. This fund makes many parts of the RCA’s mission possible, including the initiatives of Transformed & Transforming.
What is a Mission Impact Partner Church?
Missional Impact Partners (MIPs) are churches that contribute at least $40,000 or 10 percent of their budget to support the RCA’s mission and ministry. We are so grateful for the partnership from our many MIP churches. If you are interested in learning how your church can partner in this way, please reach out to email@example.com.
