PAR (pre authorized remittance)

Monthly PAR donations (Pre-Authorized Remittances) are an exceptional expression of commitment. PAR donations help us plan more effective programs and realistic budgets because we have a better idea of how much financial support to expect. This allows Affirm United/S’affirmer ensemble to plan for the longer term, and to expand our commitment to large projects like the Living Apology and continued growth of Affirming Ministries.

Our PAR donors find that automatic deductions are also a great way to save time and effort.  When you commit to donating by PAR we automatically waive your individual membership fee unless you wish to continue to pay it separately.

Your commitment gives us a firm foundation to build on, and we thank you! Any donation in any form and of any size is always welcome. Paid individual and organizational memberships are also a key part of our budget.

How it works:
You send us a cheque marked “void,” and tell us how much you want deducted from your bank account each month. We send this information to the United Church’s national office. They instruct your bank to automatically withdraw the money, usually around the 20th of each month. You can notify us to increase, decrease, or cancel your contribution at any time. You can opt out at any time.

To donate to Affirm United through PAR, simply print the Affirm United PAR form (pdf), fill it out, add a cheque marked “void,” and mail to the address below.
