You may designate your donation in one of four ways:
- Our General Fund represents our budget which covers all aspects of our regular expenses. It includes support for our staff, building maintenance, ministry expenses, and support for our Missionaries extending our outreach around the world. This fund is foundational to our ministry, so we encourage our congregation to make it a priority in giving.
- Building Fund donations are used to make improvements to our building.
- The Caring Fund is used to provide physical and emotional support to individuals. It is also used to encourage people serving in ministry and allows us to respond to humanitarian emergencies around the world.
- Internship Support is used to fund and support our current and future internship program here at Summerside.
Year end Tax Receipts are issued in February. If you need a receipt before then, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
