Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) enables you to give your offering intentionally, proportionally and faithfully all year long through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account. Using PAR provides your congregation with financial stability, helping them focus on sharing the love of Christ.
The United Church of Canada administers the program for the PCC, keeping costs low for churches: $0.50/donor each month with a monthly maximum of $45/month for a congregation. A congregation can sign up even if they have only one donor who wants to give in this way. To set up PAR for your congregation, see the information below.
If you would like to make monthly oﬀerings to your congregation through PAR, obtain an authorization form from your congregation (or use the one below). Fill it out, attach a void cheque and give them to the PAR contact person in your congregation. Withdrawals from your bank account will occur on the 20th of each month. PAR cards can be placed on the offering plate each week.
