Loaves & Fishes Fund

In Jesus’s hands five loaves and two fish became enough to feed a multitude, with plenty remaining.

Become a part of the ongoing miracle of multiplication by donating to Presbyterian World Service & Development’s Loaves & Fishes Fund. Legacy gifts harness the power of your investment money, provide a steady stream of income to PWS&D and use tax efficient strategies to maximize your gift and your own tax savings.

How it works

Your gifts to PWS&D’s Loaves & Fishes Fund will improve the lives of people living in poverty around the world. It means PWS&D’s long-term, sustainable programs will have the consistent, dedicated support they need over a seven-year period.

Making a legacy gift to the Loaves & Fishes Fund, allows one-seventh of your gift to be used to support the work of PWS&D in the year it is given. The rest of your gift is invested by professional fund managers for the Trustee Board of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Over the next six years, PWS&D uses a portion of the gift, plus the annual interest earned to support our ongoing work. At the end of the seven years, your entire gift – plus all the income and capital gains generated by your investment – will have been used for the development, relief and refugee support work of PWS&D.
