Tailor your Donation

You can direct your donations to:

  • Our Annual Fund Campaign
    • Unrestricted gifts are easier to manage and offer greater flexibility than program specific gifts. These funds represent a vital source of funding for day to day operations. More importantly, an unrestricted gift allows us to respond to the ever-changing needs in Thunder Bay by allocating money to where it is needed most urgently such as the Client Emergency Fund.
  • You can also give based on what matters most to you
    • Choose one of the following program-specific funds and direct where you want your donation to go:
      • Pastoral Care Fund
        • To provide the means for more hours of pastoral care for seniors in nursing homes and to help us purchase devotional booklets for their own use.
      • Social Services Fund
        • To enable our social services worker to continue to provide support in both Finnish and English to those who are in need of highly individualized support to live independently in the community.
      • Street Reach Fund
        • To provide our street chaplain with the time and resources to develop long-term relationships with people around the city.
      • Endownment Fund
        • Direct your donations towards our endowment fund at the Thunder Bay Community Foundation! Giving to our endowment funds means that your donation will continue to give for years to come.
