Lenten Almsgiving Appeal
Lent is now upon us. Can we request that you consider including the CCRL in your Lenten almsgiving?
One hundred percent of our operational budget comes from individuals and church groups who, like you, generously donate from time to time. Because of the nature of our work, which includes advocacy of a political nature, we are unable to offer tax receipts, and this makes your donation even more impressive.
Our ability to advocate your behalf is based on the generosity of our donors. In particular, we are especially grateful to those of you that contribute a fixed amount on a regular basis. We literally operate on hope and prayers that an appeal for funding twice per year will provide us the modest means of allowing us to continue with our work.
Thankfully our prayers are always answered, yet we also know that the Lord helps those who first attempt to help themselves.
I humbly ask you to consider donating a fixed amount on a monthly basis. We have the capability to set this up so that it is drawn from either your bank account or from your VISA or Mastercard.
This can be done yourself by checking the “Make this a Monthly Gift” box with your donation via VISA or Mastercard at https://ccrl.ca/support/.
If a monthly bank withdrawal is preferable, please send us a VOID cheque and instructions to the CCRL, 2305 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON, M6S 1P1.
Of course a one-time donation can also be made by mailing a cheque to the same address.
Perhaps you could consider including a bequest of a portion of your estate in your will. Such donations do not take away from current needs, and we have been blessed to have received recent donations from our deceased supporters.
You can also call me directly at (416) 466-8244 or Toll-Free at 1-844-722-2275. Our voicemail is secure as I am the only one who has access to messages.
There is no minimal amount as we always are in need of donations and we appreciate them all.
