Your contributions help us maintain our place of worship and our community outreach programs.

First Metropolitan United Church is a large, active community that reflects its calling to love, honour, worship and serve God through programs that reach inward to foster spiritual growth and outward to help meet the needs of our neighbours and others in the world beyond. It is through contributions of you, our members and friends that we can live out that calling.

Your support through donation allows us to maintain the wide array of programs we offer, add new programs to serve urgent, emerging needs within the churh and community and to update our church facility to meet existing and future use.

Whether it is your regular or one-time financial contribution, your support enables us to offer programs such as:

  • livestreaming of Sunday services
  • wellness programs such as tai chi, yoga and Healing Pathways
  • support groups and health advocacy services
  • children's programs 
Tax receipts are issued at the end of each year for all donations. Under the Income Tax Act, a taxpayer is entitled to a tax credit for donations made to a number of organizations. Gifts of $200 and less will produce a tax credit at the rate of 17%. If gifts exceed $200 in one year, the excess will have a credit of 29%.
The credit rate is multiplied by the amount of the gift/donation and the product is then deducted from the tax which would be otherwise payable. The value of the credit is effectively increased by about 50% when provincial tax is taken into account (The Canadian Book of Charities, 2004).
First Metropolitan United Church is a charity registered under the Income Tax Act and is eligible to issue official donation receipts.
