Tithing Allocation

What is Tithing Allocation?

The purpose of the Tithing Allocation Committee (TAC) is to advise the pastor concerning requests for funding received by the parish from organizations involved in charity, evangelization, or education. The TAC is formed under the Administrative Support Commission and is coordinated under the Service Commission.

The committee follows certain principles, including the pastor’s responsibility for fund disbursement, funding determined as a percentage of the weekly collection, support limited to IRS 501c3-qualified organizations, and preference for Catholic organizations. Approved grant requests receive funding by check, and updates on grant recipients are shared with the parish. The TAC focuses on supporting mission activities, emphasizing Catholic organizations, and spiritual work. The committee meets three times per year, and applications must be submitted 2 weeks in advance of the scheduled meetings.
