Cornerstone Nashville continues to provide everyone with access to Cornerstone Connect that, once you’re logged in, provides you with the ability to create a giving statement for any specified period. Plus, access to Cornerstone Connect provides you with the ability to give online and, if desired, set up “repeating” giving from a checking account or credit/debit card.
ACCESSING YOUR GIVING STATEMENT
To access your Giving Statement, click HERE and then click the ‘Sign Up’ link right under the login box on the Cornerstone Connect login page. You will receive an e-mail with a user name and password shortly after you sign up. Once you receive your user name and password, return to the login page (HERE) and login.
If you already have a Cornerstone Connect account, there’s no need to sign up again. Click HERE and login using your user name and password. Once you’re logged in, you will see a “Welcome to Cornerstone Connect” message. On the right side of the page, click your name, click on the ‘My Profile’ link taking you to your profile page. Once there, click on the ‘Financial’ tab and then the ‘Giving Statement’ link.
CONFIGURING YOUR GIVING STATEMENT
Type: Once you’ve clicked the Giving Statement link, you’ll see a small window with a few options for configuration of your statement. Under ‘Type’ use the pull-down menu to select either ‘Family’ or ‘Individual.’ In most cases the Family option will be the correct choice.
Date Range: You will then have to select the ‘Date Range.’ You can use the Quick Date Range option to select ‘Last Year’ from the pull-down menu or you can just enter the date range preferred.
Tax-Deductible: You will then need to use another pull-down menu to select ‘Deductible’ to have the statement only include tax-deductible contributions. This is important. If you paid for an event or paid the church anything during the year other than your tithes and offerings, those payments are not tax-deductible.
Include Pledge Information: Lastly, if you made a commitment to the InPursuit campaign and want to see your giving versus commitment on your statement, check the box to “Include Pledge Information.” Otherwise, you may leave this box unchecked.
Create: Now, click the ‘Create’ link at the bottom right of the box to create your giving statement. Once you have it on the screen, you may save it and/or print it for your records.
It’s that simple! If you have any questions about creating your giving statement, please contact Blake Cantrell, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-865-6655.
