LUF is dependent entirely on its own fundraising efforts and the support of its members and friends. We encourage people to pledge financially as this gives us the ability to budget for each fellowship year. Of course, any and all donations are appreciated. Income tax receipts are provided for identified donations and offerings.
Our Endowment Fund, based on legacy gifts and “in memoriam” donations, helps us to build a capital base, with interest available for specific projects.
LUF FINANCIAL NEWS November 2021
Things were more challenging going forward due to COVID-19. As we have resumed services in-person and online things are changing. Please help us to pass the plate virtually when we can’t do it in person. Many of the Fellowship’s costs carry on so we hope that the revenue can continue as well. Here are the ways that you can contribute:
- Carry on with your automatic withdrawal. Thanks to those of you who use this continuous method.
- Mail a cheque to the Fellowship. Angie continues to work in the office. Jean pops in as needed and will make deposits to the Bay Credit Union, our financial institution.
- Send an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. Angie will receive these and direct the money to the Fellowship’s account and will provide the information to Jean for recording.
- Deposit an offering in the basket when attending in person.
If you have any questions, please contact Angie, Jean or Margaret. Thanks, be well under the circumstances and stay tuned for more LUF ways of gathering! – Margaret Wanlin, Treasurer
