Donations are always welcome: they help us maintain our beautiful home and allow us to help those in need. Did you know that replacing the church roof costs $700,000? That’s a hefty amount, but thank goodness we have a supportive community to help us! We have a great Capital Campaign coming up, but before this really kicks off, we need your help today. If you would like to donate, you can do a one time donation, or use our PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance) System for monthly donations.
How much should you donate? That is up to you – tax receipts are issued by St. Matthias’ automatically. Thank you for your support!
Application forms for the PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance) System for monthly donations are available in the Church Office or one can be sent to you by email.
Please see one of the Wardens if you wish a form given to you on a Sunday or call Dawn Hallas at the office (514) 933-4295.
PAR, or Pre-Authorized Remittance, is a direct debit program that allows people to support their church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from their bank account. The United Church administers the program following the giver’s wishes (e.g., X amount for local church expenses and X amount for the Mission and Service Fund). Once a month, all PAR givings are debited from givers’ accounts and then the total, less a service fee, is electronically transferred to local church accounts. Tax Receipts are issued by St. Matthias’ for the amounts donated before the service charge.
For a much more detailed explanation of how this system works and the benefits it can be to you are found on the web United Church website.
