Thank you for an amazing response of $12,500 on Giving Tuesday.

We're at $95,000 of the
 $100,000 Matching Challenge Grant

Help us reach our goal.
Donate today at faithworks.ca
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of FaithWorks, a generous donor has offered a $100,000 matching challenge grant for all new and increased donations. This means that for every dollar raised over last year’s amount, by an individual or parish, FaithWorks receives an extra dollar.
Doing a little more can make twice the difference.
Individual donors can make online donations at the FaithWorks website, faithworks.ca, and have your donation attributed to your parish if you follow the instructions on the website and include the parish name in the Comments Section. In this way your donation can be included in the parish total.
Join the 100 + 1 % Challenge
100% participation +
1% increase in donations
This "extraordinary" challenge has been given to us by Bishop Andrew to celebrate the 25th anniversary of FaithWorks. We are challenged to achieve 100% participation by Anglican parishes and individuals and a 1% increase in donations in this year's fundraising campaign.
This would produce an extraordinary result that would allow FaithWorks to offer extraordinary assistance to the most vulnerable among us during these extraordinarily difficult times.
That would be something to celebrate!
Join us and rise to the Challenge.

It's the year-end countdown!

Only 17 days until Christmas! 

Christmas shopping is fast turning into
last minute shopping.
There are also only 24 days left in 2021. 

Let me remind you that it’s time to review your charitable pledges and intentions. If you wish to deduct your charitable donations on your 2021 income tax return, time is running out.

The FaithWorks 2021 campaign is approaching it’s annual goal of $1.5 million.  We hope to reach that goal to be able to offer the same funding as last year to our front-line ministry partners.

We would like to exceed that goal to offer more assistance to our existing ministry partners and help the new applicants seeking our support for the first time.

How wonderful it would be if we met Bishop Andrew’s 100+1% Challenge and saw something extraordinary happen in this 25th anniversary year!

Let’s all review our charitable intentions and pledges and help make something wonderful happen in 2021!
