OTHER CONVENIENT WAYS TO GIVE

RECURRING

Monthly pre authorized debits that are withdrawn from your bank account on either the 5th or the 20th of each month (or both). Forms are available in the pew back pockets, or can be downloaded using the button below.

ONE TIME

Offering envelopes found on the back of chairs in the sanctuary. If you are giving cash, please note your name on the outside of the envelope so that we attribute it to the right donor. The first time you give, please include your address, too.

PRE-DATED

For our regular givers who still prefer cash or cheque, we offer pre-dated envelopes in sets of 52 that can be issued at the beginning of the year. Envelopes must be requested before November 15 for the upcoming year.

TECHNICAL STUFF

We are grateful for those in our congregation who financially support the vision and ministry of Bonavista Church. For information on current board approved programs and projects, contact the Treasurer.

**Regarding the charity receipts, our normal practice has been to issue a joint receipt to spouses, because of Canadian tax rules that allow either spouse to claim all or part of a charitable donation made by either. However, if you would prefer separate receipts, please inform the treasurer before January 1 of each year, so that we can give you separate donor numbers, or as soon as possible if your marital status changes during the year.

**The church accepts gifts only for operations, programs, and projects approved by the board of elders. Designated giving is directed to the program or project specified by the donor to the extent possible, however where a program or project is over or under-subscribed, the gift may be directed to other, similar projects. Gifts designated for non-approved programs or projects will be returned to the giver.
