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.

Here are the details of the Program:

The Dragon Ladies

We are an informal group of women who like to cook and decorate, and use our skills to help raise money for St. George’s. We have catered luncheons and dinners in the Church Hall – average of 9 a year for the past 10 years. Our membership is a core group plus others who help from time to time.

The Facelifters/Garage Sale Committee

We are a very large group of people from all corners of the parish, who plan and organize an annual spring garage sale in the church, raising money for projects to “facelift” the church as well as providing significant funds for the general running of the church. We take donations of “stuff” and sort it throughout the year, in preparation for the 4 hours that we are open to the public. Our garage sale includes a Bake Sale, a Silent Auction for some of the items of value, and provide a nice lunch for anyone who wants to sit and visit for a bit.

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 death, 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.
