FUNDRAISING /DONATIONS

HOW TO DONATE TO DUNDAS ST. CENTRE WHILE THE CHURCH IS CLOSED


During the closure of our church a lot of work will continue and we hope to find new ways to uphold our mission and care for each other and the community while we follow the recommendations re closure during the covid-19 outbreak. Most of the work of our staff and the cost of the building will continue although in some cases in different ways. We sincerely hope that you will continue your financial support during this difficult period. The following ways to do so are offered for your consideration.

  • Post-Dated Cheques ~ we have a secure mailbox that requires keys to deposit and retrieve mail. The mailbox is checked two or three times a week. Post-dated cheques and cheques (please no cash) can be sent via Canada Post to Dundas St Centre United Church, 482 Dundas St, London ON  N6B 1W6.

  • Pre-Authorized Remittance ~ a monthly donation is given to the church from your bank account or credit card. Please call 519-434-9173 or email outofthecold@golden.net and ask Laura for assistance with setting this up. If you already are on PAR and need to change something, please ask Laura for help.

  • Interac E-transfers* ~ if you have online banking access, it is as easy as logging into your bank account, looking for the Interac E-transfer link, and filling in a little bit of information. Please use the name “Dundas St Centre United Church” for the recipient and “outofthecold@golden.net” as the email address. Fill in the rest of the information as required and send! If you have chosen a security question and answer, please contact Laura at 519-434-9173 or the email address listed so that she can speak with you. You will have to share the answer with her for your gift to be deposited. *Please note that your bank may charge you to send an E-transfer depending on your bank/account. It is likely comparable to the price of a stamp.  

  • Canada Helps ~ is a Canadian charitable organization that allows you to give to ANY Canadian charity with your credit card. You can do this as a one-time gift or set it up as a monthly donation.

Donations

 

Dundas Street Centre United Church is home to several outreach programs that feed and clothe the needy in the city of London. We have many volunteers who give countless hours of their free time to enable the continuation of these activities. We also depend on the financial generosity of our friends and members to carry out good works in the community.

Please consider a donation to one of our programs.  You will receive a charitable tax receipt early in the new year for the total amount of this year's donation(s) so be sure to include your full mailing address and contact information. 

When you make a donation, you will be able to choose from one of the following funds:
 

  • Dundas Centre United Operating Fund – used to help defray the costs of heat and utilities.

  • Out of the Cold hospitality meal - weekly meals feed 140-200 hungry people from the community.

  • Good Samaritan Cupboard - volunteers repair and recycle donated clothing and produce quilts and knitted articles for families in need.

  • Memorial Fund - used to refurbish and repair the building as needed. A meaningful way to celebrate the life of a deceased friend or loved one. The name of the honoree will be added to our Memorial Book.

  • Building Maintenance – for the upkeep of our beautiful heritage-designated sanctuary and supporting facilities.
