Whatever form your contribution takes, we thank you for your generosity:
- through Canada Helps
- by sending an Interac e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org with answer to security question by email
- by mailing cheques made payable to St. Andrew-by-the-Lake, attention: Joyce Rogers, 102 Lakeshore Avenue, Toronto ON M5J 1X8
The following funds have developed over many years and serve to support different facets of our lives on Toronto Island. Contributions to all funds are welcomed and donors will receive charitable donation receipts. Cheques should be payable to Church of St. Andrew by-the-Lake. You may designate which fund to which you wish to direct your donation.
We are a small congregation here at St. Andrew's but are blessed by a very supportive community both on Toronto Island and cityside. With the community's generosity, we are able to initiate new programming, meet operating expenses and to maintain and improve our historic church. Each November we launch our annual fundraiser for the Heritage Fund - watch for the letter and give generously.
Social Services Fund
One of the unsung contributions of the church to the Island community is the good that flows from the Social Services Fund. This fund welcomes donations from those who wish to provide support to community members who may be elderly and wish to remain in their homes, temporarily disabled or otherwise in need of help.
Hilary Kilbourn Memorial Fund
Hilary continues to cast her spell over the Island through good works funded by the Hilary Kilbourn Memorial Fund. This fund was initiated by her family upon Hilary's death in 2006. Contributions from the Fund have been made to Shadowland to support programming for Island youth. The Fund enables wonderful concerts to be offered at the church. One of the Island postal carts has been restored complete with a commemorative plaque. In addition, four children are supported through World Vision, a favourite charity of Hilary's. Contributions of World Vision are primarily funded by the annual sale of calendars designed and sold by John Jackman in memory of Hilary.
