PAR – Pre-Authorized Remittance

upparlogoA third convenient option if you wish to make a recurring contribution to St. Andrew’s programs is to sign up for PAR. PAR stands for Pre-Authorized Remittance. If you have automatic debits from your bank account to pay for insurance, cable TV, taxes, fuel, or a mortgage – then you understand the PAR principle. It means regular contributions throughout the year that make it easy to donate to St. Andrew’s.

How to get involved:

  • Contact the church office (saintandrewshfx@eastlink.ca or phone 902-405-3163) to request a PAR enrolment form.
  • Fill in the Authorization Form and attach a sample cheque from your account marked “Sample” or “Void”
  • Deliver the form and void cheque to the church office, or place both on the offering plate

Advantages to you:

  • Regular support of St. Andrew’s in the amount that you choose
  • Continual support of St. Andrew’s when you are away
  • Avoidance of “catch-up” periods

Advantages to the congregation:

  • Regular, dependable flow of contributions
  • Reduction of paperwork and bookkeeping
  • Reduction in bank overdrafts
