InterChurch Health Ministries Canada is a growing ministry, always living on the financial edge, in helping to meet the needs of our Parish Nurses and Partner Congregations and Agencies. We are greatly indebted to the many volunteers who serve in strategic ways and give freely of their valuable time and talents to make it a strong viable organization.
InterChurch Health Ministries Canada is in need of significant funding, with an annual budget in excess of $140,000 not including the Waterloo Wellington Local Health integration network monies. The need for staff to support the ministry exceeds what our present funds are able to provide. We need your help.
We are very thankful for the many individuals who annually remember this need of ICHM Canada through their regular financial donations. The possibility of monthly gifts to ICHM Canada through a Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) plan was initiated in the Fall of 2004, and the numbers giving to this ministry through this means is steadily growing. All personal donations are acknowledged and an official charitable donation receipt is issued. (Download the PAR form)
We are very thankful for the gifts given to this ministry by congregations and parishes. More and more congregations are giving extra gifts to this ministry because they see it as an avenue for the mission of spreading the gospel of Christ through this health and healing ministry. As this ministry grows across Canada, and as we enable health and healing ministries in Affiliate regions who have minimal financial resources, we are in mission.
InterChurch Health Ministries Canada would also like to encourage the use of Memorial Gifts (in the case of the death of a loved one) in supporting this ministry, as well as remembering this ministry in Bequests through Wills.
ICHM Canada is also registered with Canada Helps.Org., an online charitable donor site. For your convenience you may wish to donate to ICHM Canada using a major credit card. There are a variety of payment options to explore at www.canadahelps.org.
