Saint Columba House receives roughly 20 percent of its funding from the Mission and Service Fund and the Montreal Presbytery Finance and Extension Board of The United Church of Canada. The rest is up to all of us to raise together!

There are many ways that individuals and groups can help us raise funds to support our programs and achieve our goals. Here are some suggestions:

  • Make a donation yourself

  • Encourage your church, company, family, community to make a donation.

  • Hold a “House Party” and ask guests to bring gifts of non-perishable food, children’s books, or a monetary donation for Saint Columba House.

  • Organize a concert, fashion show, cabaret, or other fundraising event with our support.

  • Purchase gifts for loved ones through our Living Gifts Program as a way to honour those you care about and support Saint Columba House.

  • Become a sustaining donor through our PAR Program (pre-authorized remittances) and support Saint Columba House on a monthly basis.

  • Consider making a special gift or bequest to Saint Columba House.

  • Become a Friend of Saint Columba House and act as a key contact for your church or organization. Invite us to speak to your church or organization about the work we do and how people there can get involved.

  • Come and visit to see for yourself all that goes on at Saint Columba House, get inspired and get involved! Call ahead and arrange for a tour. Or just join us for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30 – 12:30. There is always plenty of room at the banquet table
