Giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of our worship here at Coquitlam Alliance Church. 2 Corinthians 9:7 calls on us to be cheerful givers and Proverbs 3:9 calls on us to give God our firstfruits. We call our congregation to give, not by meeting some obligatory percentage, but gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel because Jesus sacrificed for us, and all we have is His.
“All spending of funds is confined to CA Church approved programs and projects. Each restricted contribution designated toward an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for some reason as determined by CA Church, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such program or project will be used where needed most as determined by the Board of Elders.”

Donation of publicly traded securities. Contact Richard McGregor or Janice Doran at the church office for information on connecting you with our broker to arrange a transfer of shares. You may be further ahead donating shares than by donating their value in cash because:
– There may be no tax on any capital gains from the donated securities plus
– You get a receipt for the full value of the donated securities as of the date that our broker receives the securities on our behalf.
– You should contact your accountant to see how donating publicly traded securities can benefit you.
Please note: We recommend that your securities are transferred no later than December 14, to ensure the transaction is completed by year-end and you are eligible for a current year official tax receipt.
