Rideau Park Foundation for Ministry

Faithful stewardship sustains the presence of the church from generation to generation. The Rideau Park Foundation for Ministry is an opportunity for those who value the ministry and presence of Rideau Park United Church to be a part of its ongoing witness and future. This Foundation was established by the congregation in 1994. The vision of those who initiated it was an ongoing way to build new ministry directions.

How you can help:

  • Make a donation to the Foundation in memory of, or to honour a family member, friend or member of the RP congregation. Church staff can help you make a contribution and to send appropriate notifications, tax receipts and thank-you cards.
  • Name the Foundation as your charity of choice at the time of your death. This helps your family to know that it is your desire to remember the congregation through memorials.
  • Make a donation directly to the Foundation. Any size of contribution is welcome. Charitable tax receipts will be issued.
  • Include the Foundation in your estate planning. The United Church of Canada and church staff can assist in directing you to information on how to continue your faithfulness to God and future generations of the Church through long-term giving via gift annuities, life insurance and bequests.
