Thank you for supporting our Christ the Saviour Church community. We are a registered non-profit organisation. There are many ways to contribute either monetarily with goods or services as well as by volunteering your time.
Current Fundraising Projects
Wall icon painting
We have a wall-icon painting project underway. The first stage has been completed which was the image of the Mother of God ‘More Spacious then the Heavens’ above the altar completed for the 50th anniversary of the chuch in September 2017. The next stage is underway and be the Icon of Christ made-without-hands above the archway, the Annunciation either side and the Prepared Throne of Christ above it. The iconographer is Dmitri Shkolnik. Please donate generously for the beautification of our worship space. Thank you!
Our altar is very small which makes it difficult to serve, especially when we have visiting clergy. In order to make more space we have had plans drawn up for an altar refurbishment.
Our candle stands are old aluminium and bending over in their old age!
Please help us buy some new ones - thank you!
We are updating our kitchen to eventually bring it to commercial level.
We have raised money for a new refrigerator and dishwasher - thank you!
Now we need a new counter and floor!

Organizing a Fellowship Meal every couple of months by purchasing the food, setting up the hall, preparing the food and cleaning up afterwards - ask a friend or two to assist you.

In addition, we welcome donations of select goods that our Church may need (Church and office supplies, equipment, food for Fellowship meals, airline mileage, etc.)

matching gift program
As a registered non-profit organization Christ the Saviour Church is therefore eligible for matching gift programs that are available through many companies. Many companies will match employee contributions to a charity or cause. Matching plans are specific to each company, but the common principle is simple:
The company will contribute some amount (maybe the same, maybe a percentage) if the employee makes a contribution. To find out if your employer has a matching plan, ask your HR department.
You can make a preliminary search by going to this address to find a full list of participating companies:
To quicken your search: open the list, then do ctrl F and then write the name of your employer in the box and it will take you straight there, if it is there.
Don’t forget to tell your relatives and friends as well!
As you are completing your trust or will, please consider including Christ the Savior Church as a beneficiary. You and your Orthodox loved ones will be remembered during our Holy Services. If you are interested in pursuing this please contact your estate attorney as well as send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another way to give to Christ the Savior Church is gifting stocks, bonds or mutual funds. It is suggested that you speak with your broker and tax accountant about the benefits of making this philanthropic gift. Please contact the Church Office at phone 415 823 9927 or email to email@example.com.
