Automatic bank withdrawals help congregations to maintain a regular, dependable flow of contributions and provide church members with a convenient way of providing ongoing, faithful support for their church. The Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program allows individuals to give to their congregation or the PCC through monthly automatic debit payments.

Giving a gift of securities to a mission or ministry or congregation of The Presbyterian Church in Canada is simple. Use the PCC forms to direct your broker to electronically transfer your securities to The PCC’s brokerage. The PCC’s broker then sells the stock very soon after receiving the transfer. Based on the fair market value of the stock on the day it was donated, the PCC issues you a charitable tax receipt. The PCC then directs the proceeds of the sale (reflecting any change in value from date of sale minus the broker fees) to whatever PCC congregation, program, or ministry you wish. There are separate forms for Individuals and Estates.
