Thank you for your faithful support of ministry at Pacific Spirit United Church. There are a number of convenient ways you can give:
(1) Pre-authorized Remittances (PAR)
PAR is a direct debit program administered by the United Church of Canada that allows you to support Pacific Spirit United Church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account. PAR withdrawals usually occur on the 20th day of each month.
PAR provides Pacific Spirit with a consistent and predicable cash flow for our daily operations and reduces administrative and volunteer time. PAR also allows you to maintain your personal commitment even when you are away without having to “catch up” on your givings. PAR cards are available in the pews to place in the offering plate each week as a symbol of your spiritual practice of giving.
To register, please download and complete the PAR form or pick up a form in the Narthex and return it to the office with a void cheque.
(2) Cheque or Cash
If you contribute regularly by cheque, we can provide you with a set of pre-numbered, weekly envelopes for your convenience. Generic envelopes are also available in the pews for those who make contributions fewer than 12 times over the course of the year.
(3) Gifts of Securities
A gift of shares or other securities can have significant tax benefits in certain circumstances and is easily facilitated by our investment team. Please refer to the Securities Donations form for further information.
(4) Online Donations
Make one-time or recurring donations to Pacific Spirit using a credit card via Canada Helps (note associated 4% processing fee).
(5) Legacy Giving
Consider creating a lasting legacy for Pacific Spirit United Church through a bequest in your will or other available gifting options. The best way to plan for such a gift is to seek professional advice from your own financial advisor. Watch for a special event coming that will explore legacy giving in the context of ministry at Pacific Spirit United Church.
