Benevolent Fund

What is the Benevolent Fund and how does it help people?Benevolent Fund

There have been requests to explain what this fund is all about.

Many people are not even aware of its existence. It is a confidential fund, managed by Rev. Gill, with help from the some of the other staff, to help people in need due to illness, unemployment, or some unexpected accident, setback, or tragedy.

Every year it helps people in this congregation in need through financial and material assistance. It also helps those in the community and occasional transients who stop by the Church looking for assistance. This fund helps any youth/adult in the congregation who cannot afford to attend a retreat, or church event that involves a cost, plus special organization needs in the community from time to time. The money for this fund comes from 2 main sources. The largest is the Christmas Memorial Program (see Winter edition of the Waltonian, and above notice on Christmas Memorials), and individual donors throughout the year. All gifts to this fund receive a tax receipt. The work of the fund remains highly confidential to allow for anonymous support of people in need.

For more information, please speak to Rev. Jim Gill 905-827-1643 or email waltonmemorial@cogeco.ca.
