STEWARDSHIP


Pre-Authorized Donations

St. George’s offers a pre-authorized donation program for parishioners. This program, the “Electronic Offering Program”, is sponsored by the Diocese of Algoma and is used by a number of Anglican parishes in Ontario and Manitoba.

The Program provides parishioners the convenience of regular electronic donations to St. George’s. It also provide St. George’s with a more even flow of donations and less administrative effort.

  • Please fill out the Donor Registration/Amendment Form, attach a voided cheque, and put it in the collection plate or take it to the office. A copy of this Form can be printed from the website.
  • Print your envelope number to the far right of the “Ref #” line on the Form.
  • Your monthly donation will be withdrawn from your financial institution on the 15th of every month.
  • As there is only one withdrawal a month, divide your annual Estimate of Giving by 12 to determine your monthly donation. Write it in the space after “Total $”.
  • Write the month you wish to start the Program in the (month) space on the Form.
  • The costs of the Program, $8 for each set-up and $1.20 per withdrawal, will be paid by the Parish. As the costs of any dishonoured withdrawals are passed onto the Parish, parishioners are encouraged to keep sufficient funds in their accounts and to provide the office a new voided cheque if the financial institution changes.
  • The Donor Registration/Amendment Form must be filled out when there is an amendment, suspension or cancellation of the Program. Forms will be included with fall Financial Stewardship activities. There are additional fees to return to the program after a suspension of six months.
  • Please continue to make offerings to PWRDF, Easter envelopes, and other activities/events in your current manner.

If you have any questions, please contact Ted Cotton at (204) 488-3606 or tedcotton@mts.net.

Ernie’s Bookshelves

Ernie Johnson, one of our parish’s most avid readers and advocates of reading, set up a little corner where people can bring paperback books, and take books while leaving a small remittance. After Ernie’s passing, his family had some shelves built and the tradition continues. The small amounts of money add up and is used for worthwhile causes.

Special Events

We do fund-raising for special needs that arise, matching an appropriate event to the need.

We have done:

  • numerous music recitals to raise money for church projects.
  • sales of African music CDs and crafts to raise money for our partners in Central Buganda.
  • Twoonie and Threenie Lunches targeting specific projects.
