Give a gift with meaning!
The Presbyterian Church in Canada’s Gifts of Change catalogue supports marginalized communities across Canada and around the world.
Not only is giving a gift from our catalogue unique, but you can be sure your gifts will be used to carry out life-changing programs that are responding to the needs of people affected by poverty, hunger, natural disasters and conflict.
Gifts of Change 2020-2021
We have plenty of life-changing gifts to offer:
Respond to COVID-19 (PWCOV01)
The global health emergency created by COVID-19 has impacted already vulnerable communities in multiple ways. Children out of school, lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene services, and enormous hunger risks due to lost livelihoods have left many in need. You can help our international partners respond to the impact COVID-19 is having in their communities.
Sowing the Seeds of Food Security (PWAGR01)
Subsistence farmers in developing countries work hard on small plots of land to provide food for their families. You can help farmers learn to improve crops, conserve resources and sell their goods—providing food for today and an income for the future.
From Sickness to Strength (PWHEA01)
Preventable illnesses and inadequate access to health care impact many in the developing world. Your gifts help bring medical care to remote villages, tackle prevalent childhood diseases and empower communities to prevent the spread of illness.
Empowered to Prosper (PWHR01)
PWS&D empowers families to meet their basic needs and combat injustice through a commitment to human rights. Your gifts will help heal injustices, encourage self-reliance and promote equal opportunity for all.
Sunday School Challenge: Opening Classroom Doors (PWSSC07)
Take part in the PWS&D Sunday School Challenge and open classroom doors for children. Your support will ensure that a child will receive a full year of education—brightening their prospects for the future.
A Classroom for Every Child (PWEDU01)
While we often take education for granted, many children in the developing world—especially girls—never have the opportunity to go to school. Education is one of the most critical tools in breaking cycles of poverty. By opening classroom doors, providing necessary supplies and delivering training for teachers, your gifts will help children reach their full potential.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (PWH20)
Help a community access clean, safe drinking water, and appropriate sanitation and hygiene support to relieve thirst, improve health, enhance quality of life and achieve lasting change.
Responding to Emergencies (PWEMRG01)
Respond to disaster, conflict and persecution by providing immediate relief (including food, shelter, and water and sanitation), emotional support and long-term rehabilitation for people in crisis.
The van Mossel Refugee Support Fund (PWREF01)
PWS&D, through gifts to the van Mossel Refugee Support, provides quality accompaniment to congregations that wish to sponsor refugees in Canada and supports refugee rights advocacy organizations overseas.
It is important to note that:

- Actual costs may vary depending on current and local market conditions;
