Ways to Give

Learn how to make a one-time gift or become a monthly donor

When you donate to PWRDF, you can be sure that your money is being well spent. Our development partners monitor their spending and are accountable to our development and finance teams, so that we can be accountable to you. Tax receipts are issued by the end of February for the previous year.

In cases where donations exceed what is needed or where local conditions prevent program implementation, PWRDF will redirect funds to similar activities to help people in need. One percent of designated funds will be set aside for program monitoring and evaluation costs.

Charitable Number: 8664 34640 RR0001

Give through your church’s collection plate

Many Anglican churches across Canada encourage parishioners to allocate some of their weekly offerings to PWRDF. Others participate in PWRDF’s offering envelope program. Once a month a PWRDF envelope is added to the weekly numbered offering envelopes. Each envelope has a story of the good work donations will support. Share the Offering Envelope Program brochure with your parish or order your envelopes with the 2019 Order Form. Other parishes include the option of designating some of your weekly offerings to PWRDF on their envelopes.

Give in memory or in honour of a loved one
