Giving

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)

CanadaHelps

You have the opportunity to give a one-time offering or on a monthly basis online via CanadaHelps.

You can donate using credit card, debit/Interac, or PayPal by clicking on the DONATE NOW icon (below).  For these donations, we issue only an acknowledgement, but CanadaHelps issues an official CRA income tax receipt for the full amount of the donation and retains a fee from its disbursement to us.  Because of this disbursement fee, we encourage you to consider one of the other options if you are making regular donations.

Through the CanadaHelps portal, you can only give to:

  1. the General Fund,
  2. the Benevolent Fund or
  3. the Capital Fund.

All other donation designations are not recognized and will be assigned to the General Fund.
