Grace United Church was founded in 1956 to serve the north-end of Sarnia. We have remained faithful to that call, and continue to be an inclusive, intergenerational, community partner. We thank you for considering a financial gift to Grace United Church. Regardless of which method you choose, donors are encouraged to make non-specified donations. If you are considering a specified donation (ex. the United Church of Canada Mission & Service Fund), please review the Specified Donations Policy. Events sponsored by or held at Grace United Church may have specified targets other than the operating fund of Grace United Church.
Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)
Donate a set amount you choose (never more, never less) with monthly automated transfers (bank account or credit card). Its the easiest way to give. No messing about with envelopes, or worrying about whether you're ready for offering. Give a consistent amount monthly, and receive an annual tax receipt.
Fill out the PAR form and submit to the Office Administrator, Lori Armstrong.
Attend church, put your cash or cheque donation in an offering envelope, and place your envelope in the offering plate as it's passed along your pew. Cheques should be made out to "Grace United Church". To receive an annual tax receipt, either include your full name on each pew envelope OR request personalized envelopes that are identified by an anonymous envelope number. Children's envelopes may also be requested, ensuring your tax receipt includes your children's donations.
To request personalized envelopes or children's offering envelopes, contact the Office Administrator, Lori Armstrong.
You can transfer stocks or other securities. You may receive an annual tax receipt OR request one upon receipt of the gift.
To make a transfer of securities, contact the Office Administrator, Lori Armstrong.
Plan a legacy bequest for yourself OR make a donation in memory of a loved one or special occasion such as Graduation, Baptism, or Confirmation. You may receive an annual tax receipt OR request one upon receipt of the gift.
