Giving Tuesday - November 28, 2017

A global day created to unite people around the world in generosity

We invite you to join with others and contribute on Giving Tuesday to Community of Christ.

Our goal is to raise $200,000!

Did you know $200,000 could fund:

The entire Africa Mission Field for a year

World Service Corps program for two years

Spiritual Formation Ministries for 9 months

As we head expectantly into the Advent season, we prepare for what is to come, be it known or unknown. We know there is hope in the light and promise of the manger. There is new life waiting to be born and we can help bring it forth. Your contributions on Giving Tuesday can make that possible.

In Canada, give to Worldwide Mission Tithes through Canada Helps, by mailing a cheque, or sending an e-transfer (to Please call or email the Canadian Headquarters (1-888-411-7537 x23, to let us know these gifts are coming so that we can know to expect them for Giving Tuesday and help close the gap on our $3.5M year-end goal.

Check out Community of Christ Facebook, and Twitter for updates during Giving Tuesday!

All contributions on Giving Tuesday up to $85,000 will be doubled, thanks to a few generous members!

Your $10 becomes $20

Your $50 becomes $100.

Make your contribution go even further to support mission!

Tell us how you plan to celebrate GivingTuesday, and your favourite charity could win $5,000!
