Benevolence Policy Guidelines and Process

West Ridge Church wants to help those who are a part of our local congregation and live in our community when they fall on difficult circumstances. Fill out this form to be considered for financial assistance. PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LIVE IN THE GREATER EAU CLAIRE, WI AREA WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR ASSISTANCE

• We will treat you with dignity and respect throughout the process. Therefore, abuse or aggressive language or actions will not be tolerated.
• We care about your spiritual and emotional needs and will talk to you about Jesus, connect you with other agencies for counseling, and pray for you.
• We want to empower you to get out of a hole and back on track. As we consider your application, we will discern if granting the stated request will help you gain stability for the future.
• Each application will be considered based on the necessity of the item/bill, if you are using what funds you have wisely, and circumstances that have contributed to you asking for help.
• We will not give cash and do not have cash on hand. To make sure the funds go to the stated need, we will pay a business directly on your behalf or purchase a specific use gift card.
• God has entrusted the church with the tithes of his people, and we are responsible for using funds wisely. Because of limited funds and the great need in our community, we will only help a family once per year, except in extreme circumstances.
• Each application will be assessed prayerfully and practically through an interview and checking of references.
