Athabasca United Church


Personal donations form the vast majority of funding for the United Church of Canada ministries. You can donate to our church in many ways, such as:


·         Direct giving by contributing in worship service offering plates, by mailing in cheques or money orders, or by dropping off cash, cheques or money orders at the church. These contributions can be directed for ongoing operations, specific projects, the memorial fund or the Mission & Service Fund of the United Church of Canada. The address to mail in or drop off donations is: 
     Athabasca United Church
     4817 - 48 Street, Athabasca, AB, T9S 1R3


·         Pre-Authorized Remittances or PAR, a "direct debit" program that allows you to support our church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account. For information on setting up PAR, refer to:


·         Planned Giving which is planning now to make a gift in the future for the mission work of the church, such as a bequest, gift annuity or life insurance. The most common legacy gift received by the church is a bequest. The tax benefit from a bequest accrues to the donor’s estate. Our Philanthropy Unit can also arrange several gifts that allow you to make a gift from in the future but receive the tax benefits now. For various ways to give, refer to:


·         Gifts In-Kind, for example through volunteering, providing services, donating materials or lending equipment.


All donations are appreciated and make a big difference in our church and, in turn, in our community. Official charitable contribution receipts are issued annually for donations, as the church is a registered charity in good standing with Canada Revenue Agency.
