Spirit of Service Sponsorship Program
A local group of faith communities and social service agencies have partnered together to launch the Spirit of Service Sponsorship Program. This is an innovative and unique program designed to assist those living unsheltered in Oshawa. We have seen a desperate need for this type of program since the global COVID-19 pandemic began. Volunteer sponsors will "walk with an individual or family" through an individualized support model, to help move people who are without housing to stable housing and other opportunities for their healthy integration into the life of the community. Funds raised will go towards providing individuals with targeted financial, services/programs, social and emotional supports as they transition into stable housing opportunities and address other personal concerns. This will allow them to integrate into the economic and social life of the community.
Please use e-transfer, if you would like to support the Spirit of Service Sponsorship Program. When giving to this project by e-transfer, please send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate that it is for the Spirit of Service Sponsorship/Compassion Fund in the message window of your online banking form.
If you have any questions about this initiative, please contact our Community Impact Coordinator at email@example.com.
Pre-Authorized transactions – PAR
PAR or Pre-Authorized Remittance is a "direct debit" program that allows people to support their church through an automatic monthly withdrawal from their bank account. On the 20th of each month, PAR amounts are debited from donor accounts and then the total, less the service fee of 50 cents per transaction, is electronically transferred to Gateway's bank account.
In order to sign up for PAR, you need to fill out a form and provide a void cheque. Please contact our bookkeeper, Julie Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your generous support!
Restricted Fund Policy: Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by Gateway's Church Board. Each restricted contribution towards such an approved program or project will be used with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by either church, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where needed most.
