There are several ways to donate:
1. Offering Envelopes
Offering envelopes are available at church. Please make sure you fill out your name and address on the envelope in order to receive tax receipts. If you wish to have a personal offering envelope with an offering number in order to have anonymity, please speak to our envelope secretary or email us at email@example.com. If you are donating by cheque, please make it payable to “Kerrisdale Presbyterian Church”.
Send your offerings to firstname.lastname@example.org. We suggest that you make the password church related or send us a separate email with the relevant information.
3. Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR)
This method allows you to make offerings by automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account. The United Church of Canada administers the program for the PCC, keeping costs low for churches: $0.50/donor each month. For more information, please go to https://presbyterian.ca/plannedgiving/pre-authorized-remittance-par-program/
If you are interested in signing up, please see attached form “PAR Authorization Form” below and fill it out or you can provide a VOID cheque with written confirmation specifying the amount distribution for our envelope secretary to follow up. You can send these information to our envelope secretary at email@example.com.
