Church Financial Support
We can arrange for monthly pre-authorized remittances (PAR), which some families prefer as an easy and convenient way to make regular donations to the support of the Church . It is re-assuring to them to know that their support is meeting our expenses even when they themselves may be drawn in other directions by personal committments. Proper Tax Receipts for these donations are made at the end of each year.
In addition, certain individuals make periodic contributions to help with our operations or perhaps in memory of a friend or loved one and we have found that the use of the “Canada Helps” web site is especially beneficial. This web site is established by the Federal Government for Registered Charities and allows for a 100% flow through on donations made back to the Charity of your choice. We hope that at some time, Keswick United Church, will be that choice.
We’d prefer to see you join us on a regular basis, but if you are not able, your financial support is most gratefully accepted.
Each Congregation of the United Church of Canada operates solely on the donations made by their members. There is no financial assistance for daily operations from any other level of the Church, which sometimes might be assumed by those not familiar with our operation.
Keswick United Church exists strictly because of the weekly contributions made by those who look to it as their centre of Faith support. This support is contributed through weekly envelope givings which allows us to record the donations made and make sure that proper tax receipts for these donations are given at the end of each year.
