Why I Give

“In these times of COVID 19, one can feel disconnected from the world and somewhat helpless. As a pensioner, I feel fortunate to have an income and realize I am spending less with my stay at home approach to life. So, I can look at ways to redirect funds into helping and therefore, feel like I can help make a difference in the world. I also realize that others may be more in need now and have a reduced income to give to causes. To paraphrase Ann Mortifee’s song “One Voice” and its wonderful lyrics of “just one voice becomes a chorus, if we say we can, then we can. One voice, one single voice, if there is just one voice, let it be yours and mine.” .
Betty Kelman

Reasons to give

Samartian Fund

Our new Samaritan Fund supports those on a limited income, seniors, or those recently unemployed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Planned Giving

  • A bequest may be for a specific amount, a percentage of one’s estate or the residue of the estate.
  • A United Church gift annuity provides an income for life, a charitable tax receipt and a gift to the congregation beyond one’s lifetime.
  • RRSP or RRIF can be designated for a registered charity such as Manor Road United Church and be eligible to be treated as a Charitable Gift upon death of the holder. Alternatively, these monies are treated as income in the year of death and are subject to substantial tax.
  • There is no tax on capital gains of appreciated stocks contributed to a registered charity. The donor receives a charitable tax receipt for the full amount of the gift and is not required to pay any capital gains tax that may be applicable on sale of the shares.

Tax Receipts

Tax receipts are given for all donations over $20 and are issued in February of the following year. For more information or to make a donation please contact us at manorroaduc@gmail.com.
