Special Tools Developed for Use in the Sponsorship Program
The "Prayer Garden Project" computer program - This is a complex Access-based database
program designed to support all aspects of the Prayer Garden Project, including the
"Intent to Sponsor" forms - These forms are used to gather all of the needed information for
each sponsorship. A copy of the form must be completed by the sponsor for each item being
sponsored. All information contained on the form will be entered into the "Prayer Garden
Project" computer program. This includes:
Sponsor contact information
email address (optional)
Information describing item to be sponsored
Olive Trees and Benches – Each sponsored tree or bench includes a bronze plaque with
the exact wording provided by the sponsor on the “Intent to Sponsor” form.
Sponsorship Bricks – The information necessary for sponsored bricks is more extensive
than for an olive tree or bench, and includes:
Size of brick (4"x8" or 8"x"8")
Format option for inscription - defines the number of lines of text, the actual wording of
the text, and for some options, specifies inclusion of an image of drawing of a cross or
dove and the position of the image relative to the lines of text.
Inscription text to appear on the brick
Which image is to be included (cross or dove)
"Internal User Only" Information section - this information is to be entered by a church
office worker on the form at the time that the form and payment are submitted. Including:
Date payment made
Type of payment (cash, check, or credit card)
Amount of payment
Check number or last 4 digits of credit card (if applicable)
Receipt number - number on receipt given to sponsor
A sample of an “Intent to Sponsor” form is shown here.
A Specially-Designed, Computer-Generated "Thank You" Card - A card will be mailed to each
sponsor for every item sponsored.
The “Thank You” card will contain a thank you message with the details of the sponsorship
item and payment and also include a computer-generated “proof” image of the sponsored
item for the sponsor to examine and approve or revise.
