Chicago's LaSalle St Church profited from real-estate deal; decided to "tithe" back to congregants, giving them $500 apiece to give away however they chose.

"When a real-estate deal netted Chicago's LaSalle Street Church $1.6 million, Pastor Laura Truax made an unusual announcement: 10 percent of that money – the size of a typical tithe – would be divided among about 320 regular churchgoers. Each would get a $500 check to do something positive." -- Henry Gass, the Christian Science Monitor
