planned giving and trust ser vices The Doctor’s U.S. Tax Receipt The doctor, a Kingsway College alumnus attending an American Kingsway chapter meeting, raised his hand and waved it in the air to get the attention of the meeting’s speaker. Unable to break in the middle of her talk, the alumni director nodded at the doctor. As soon as she could, she moved to the doctor’s side. “I want to help Kingsway College students. Whom do I make this out to?” asked the doctor, pen held over his chequebook. “To Kingsway College,” she replied. “Thank you very much.” Combining the doctor’s donation of US$10,000 with the other American donations of cash and cheques, the chapter director arranged to send everything to Kingsway College. At Kingsway a financial officer wrote on the back of each U.S. cheque, “Pay to the order of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists” (GC), 1 and he purchased a U.S. money order to transfer the cash donations. All were sent to the GC office, where U.S. tax receipts were mailed to the names and U.S. addresses supplied for each donor. The GC then returned the total amount of the gifts back to Kingsway. This doctor’s generous gift funded a Kingsway College scholarship. To receive a U.S. tax receipt at any time for U.S. donations to any Canadian Adventist registered charities, American donors may send their gifts directly to the GC. 1 Treasury Department, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, 12501 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904-6600, Attention: Donation Center, Phone: 301/680-6000, Fax: 301/680-6090, ON THE ROAD WITH Rebecque Johnson If the Sunday law came into effect tomorrow, what would you do?

Ruby Eluick: If the Sunday law came tomorrow, I would be excited knowing Christ is almost here, but I would panic. M N ove mber 2 013 11
