CMUC makes a difference by responding to needs in the community, offering pastoral care, accompanying people on their grief journey, providing spiritual education opportunities, and extending vital nursing support. We depend on the generosity of our members and adherents to meet expenses. There are many ways that you can give:
Help us stabilize our income flow and know that we can count on your support for our ministry. If you have automatic deductions from your bank account to pay for insurance or your mortgage, then you understand the PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance) principle. It means monthly contributions throughout the year that allows us to plan our budgets more accurately because pre-authorized donations guarantee us a steady income stream. If you’d like to arrange a PAR, you should:
• Decide the amount of your monthly offering
• Fill in an Authorization Card from the church
• Attach a sample cheque from your account marked “Void”
• Return it to the church office via mail or the offering plate.
Bob Hanson is our PAR program coordinator. Contact the office (CLICK HERE) with your contact information and he will be in touch.
Ask us for an offering envelope number and a year’s supply of envelopes for your cheque or cash offering. If you are visiting or do not have or want a supply of these envelopes, please use the visitor’s offering envelope provided in the pew.
Supply postdated cheques made payable to Carleton Memorial United Church. We will hold your cheques and deposit them on the cheque date.
Making a bequest in your Will is the most common type of Planned Gift. This can be for a specific amount or a share of the residue of your estsate. You should consult with your lawyer about the drafting of your will or a codicil in which a gift to Carleton Memorial United Church or the M&S Fund is to be included.
Examples of a clause in your will for a specific amount are as follows:
• “To pay to Carleton Memorial United Church the sum of $___.”
• “To pay to Carleton Memorial United Church the sum of $___, to be added to the ___ Fund of the Church and dealt with as part thereof.”
Rather than leaving a specific amount in your will, you may wish to leave the whole or a portion of the residue of your estate to the Church.
When you make a gift of shares to the church, you pay no tax on the capital gain on those shares. Yet your charitable donation receipt is for the full value of the shares on the day they are received by the church.
Enables you to arrange a future gift to Carleton Memorial United Church and yet receive an income on those funds for as long as you live. The income you receive is mostly tax-free. You also receive a one-time charitable tax receipt for a portion of the Gift Annuity.
You can donate an existing policy and receive a charitable tax receipt for its cash value. Alternatively, you can purchase a new policy and receive a charitable tax receipt for the premiums you pay.
This is a truly meaningful way to acknowledge that you remember someone close to you and to express your sympathy and respect to surviving family members and friends. We will notify the family of your donation.
A gift to Carleton Memorial United Church is a caring and significant way to honour a friend, relative or colleague. Recognize a special occasion in their life with a gift of faithful stewardship.
