Are donations required?

No. 

We designed Collective to operate on minimal financial support. This is primarily achieved through having bi-vocational staff and by forgoing owning buildings. Becoming generous people is an important part of Christian maturity and our intention is to free people to direct their growing generosity toward the local and global needs they are most passionate about. We encourage everyone to consider how their limited resources can help the poor and marginalized across the street and around the globe. This could be donating to a local food shelter, mission or even helping a neighbor with their house payment.
