A very successful businessman in a small community, and a member of a small PCA church, established an Advise & Consult Fund® with the PCA Foundation. The businessman regularly tithed on his normal income to his church. However, in some years the businessman’s income was such that if he tithed on all of it to the church in those particular years, the church budget would be met without any other members needing to tithe.
From a stewardship standpoint, he felt it would be best to contribute a portion of his tithe in the high income years to his Advise & Consult Fund. Then, whenever the church had special financial needs, or possibly a building program, he could financially support the church on an anonymous basis from his Advise & Consult Fund. The Advise & Consult Fund was an excellent complement to the businessman’s varying income and charitable goals.
