Tailor Your Donation

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 by allocating money to where it is needed most urgently.

You can also choose to give based on what matters most to you, and direct your donation towards one of the following program-specific funds:

Pastoral Care Fund
Provide the means for more hours of pastoral care for seniors in nursing homes and help us purchase devotional booklets for their own use.

Street Reach Fund
Provide our Street Chaplain with the time and resources to develop long-term relationships with street-involved people in our city.

Social Services Fund
Enable our Social Services Worker to continue providing support in both Finnish and English to those who are in need of highly individualized support to live independently in the community.

Endowment Fund
Direct your gift towards our endowment fund at the Thunder Bay Community Foundation and your donation will continue to give for years to come.
