Why I Give
Ways to give
Use Canada Helps.org to make an online donation. You will be provided with a charitable tax receipt. Gifts can be made in memory of someone close to you and as an expression of sympathy and respect to surviving family members and friends. MRUC will notify the family of your donation. A gift can also be made in honour of a friend, relative, or colleague to commemorate a special occasion in their life.
Interac e-Transfer can be used to send funds from your bank account directly to MRUC. Log in to your bank account online and select “email money” or “e-transfer.” Follow the instructions to direct funds to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name and address so that we can supply you with a tax receipt.
Please make your cheque payable to Manor Road United Church and mail to Marianne Eschker, Office Administrator, 240 Manor Road East, Toronto, Ontario, MRS 1R8.
Reasons to give
Our Samaritan Fund supports those on a limited income, seniors, or those recently unemployed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
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 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 email@example.com.
