Engaging with our Neighbours in Hope and Transformation
Greetings from Harrow United Church. This appeal letter is being sent to the folks who are formally part of our congregation, those who join us for outreach initiatives, and to the many people who make use of our building each week for dance, yoga, 12 step groups, etc. We are so glad that you are all a part of our presence in the community. Thank you for enlivening our spirit of “Caring and Sharing”.
It takes approximately $200,000 a year to keep the doors open at Harrow United Church.
Along with your regular donations, we have a goal of raising an additional $25,000 for our 2019 anniversary appeal to ensure we can continue to operate as the caring and sharing church we are.
We don’t have a ‘nest egg’ or a foundation or a reserve fund. We’re depending upon the generosity of those who share our passion for all this community embodies: hospitality, celebration, hope, healing and compassion.
How can you help?
- A special one-time donation – by cash, cheque, or online through Canada Helps. If you are doing a search on CanadaHelps.org, please make sure you select Harrow United Church Winnipeg.
- Regular ongoing donations, through PAR (pre-authorized remittance), postdated cheques, weekly offering envelopes, or recurring donations through CanadaHelps.org
- A gift of securities or shares – for those who are in the happy position of trying to mitigate capital gains, this is a way to make a charitable donation at the same time as saving on taxes.
- Include Harrow United Church as a beneficiary in your will. Even small amounts from faithful supporters make a difference.
Perhaps you have a fabulous fund-raising idea you would like to take on to raise money for the church.
And while we are talking with you, we’d love to know what emphasis and initiatives you would like to see Harrow involved in … do you have an idea about ways we can ‘engage with our neighbours in hope and transformation’? Please be in touch.
Yours in faith and hope,
Teresa Moysey, Minister, Harrow United Church
