The people of The United Church of Canada are being extremely generous. We are thankful for all the many gifts being given to serve God’s mission. Your donations are an expression of compassion, build community and offer hope.
We are also grateful for the careful management of all financial gifts by ministers and lay people in congregations. All of this is happening in the context of stewarding gifts for our local ministry and Mission and Service, other year-end financial demands, while responding to the emergency appeal for Typhoon Haiyan.
We are very pleased to report that we surpassed $1 million in donations towards Typhoon Haiyan.
We are also pleased to report that giving through Gifts with Vision remains strong. People have given double the amount of Gifts with Vision this year compared to last year.
Wishing you all a blessed Advent and Christmas, Cheryl Curtis for the Philanthropy team
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
