Giving FInancially during COVID-19
As many are unable to attend worship in person due to the COVID-19 Crisis, they may be wondering how to support the ministries of St. Matthias and St. Luke Church financially. Here are some ways you can contribute:
1. Donate Online through Charitable Impact.
One way to give online is through an online charity called Charitable Impact. Clicking on their link brings you to their website, where you can choose how much to give, what ministry you would like to support (if you don't want to give to our General Fund), and different payment options (credit card, debit online, etc). Charitable Impact receives your donation and sends the funds to our church after a few days processing delay and administrative fee. Charitable Impact will issue a tax receipt for you.
2. Donate Online by Direct Deposit
If you are a regular member or have received a tax receipt from us in the past, you can also donate via Interac e-Transfer through your bank account. Using your own online banking, you can send an e-Transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the message, please include information that is normally in our donation envelopes such as your name or envelope number; and which funds you wish to direct the donation: General, Altar Flower, Thanksgiving, Mission, or Building. We will need this information if you wish to receive a tax receipt which the church will issue to you at the end of the year.
3. Donate by mailing a cheque
You can also support our church during the COVID Crisis is by mailing cheques to our address:
St. Matthias and St. Luke Church
PO Box 37056 RPO Gordon Park
If you have a donation envelope at home, please use it to indicate any particulars such as which fund to direct the donation: General, Altar Flower, Thanksgiving, Mission, or Building. If you do not have any envelopes at home, please write it in the Memo line. Similar to our regular Sunday offerings, the church will issue a tax receipt at the end of the year.
Thank you for your continued support in the ministries and mission of St. Matthias and St. Luke.
