We operate solely by donation and offerings.
100% of your contributions go directly to supporting the life and work of Saint Andrew's.
Ways to Contribute
Your contributions in all their forms are important and valued. Without our supporters, we could not do the work we do.
Donations and offerings are not the only way to contribute either! The gift of time and talents are integral to our community too. Go to the 'Get Involved' page to see how you can participate and give.
We are grateful for your support!
St. Andrew's is a charitable organization registered with Canada Revenue Agency #131575193 RR0001.
We issue tax receipts for donations and gifts over $20.

The Square will be available for Sunday offering as well. No need to remember cash or cheque, just tap and go!

When the office if closed, a secure donation drop is available in the mail slot, located to the bottom right of the Coburg Rd entrance (double glass doors).
You can also bring your offering to Sunday service and place it in the collection plate. Envelopes are available to designate donations.
