ABOUT Designated Funds
Funds can be designated only to Elder Board approved Funds and Projects. As designations are made to these Funds they become “Restricted Contributions”, to be used only for the designated Fund (except the General Fund).
Spending of money is confined to these Funds and Projects. Each restricted contribution designated towards an Elder Board approved Fund or Project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need for such a Fund or Project has been met or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the Elder Board, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such Fund or Project will be used where needed most.
We take the confidentiality of your contributions to Peoples Church seriously.
Only the Treasurer and the Finance Steward can access your contributions records.
Thank you for your financial support of the Lord’s work at Peoples Church of Sarnia-Lambton!
