How We Can Better Help
With the many ‘fun raising’ events held here at St. Paul’s throughout the year ‘we’ do a great job supporting our ‘Church’ in the Parish of Fort Erie.
There is one thing (at least) we can get better at doing.
When making a payment for an item purchased through a ‘fun - raising’ event, please make your cheque payable too (if paying by cheque) the group hosting the event. For ex: for an item purchased at the A.C.W. Bazaar kindly make your cheque payable to the A.C.W.
If you are purchasing a ticket or ticket(s) for a meal (or Golf Day etc ) hosted through St. Paul’s, kindly make your payment by cash.
There are two specific reasons for the above requests.
Any cheques made out to St. Paul’s Anglican Church for a ‘fun raising’ event purchase is liable to be included in the total used to compute our D.M & M. While we want to & will continue to support the Diocese, ‘fun - raising’ events are a direct support event of St. Paul’s.
Making your cheques payable to St. Paul’s and including your envelope number would see that amount added to your donations over the course of the year. The C.R.A.(Canada Revenue Service) does not allow for purchases made to be eligible for a tax receipt. Only donations are legally allowed / acceptable.
3. In order to ensure your event goes off without a hitch, kindly ensure it is booked through the office. This will help ensure there is not a conflict with a previously scheduled event.
