As we head into the Fall, Communitas wishes to thank all our benefactors who have supported us financially – whether with membership fees, through Open Door Book purchases, or by donating to the Organization, via cash, cheques or through our Canada Helps account.
We would like to express a special note of thanks to the individuals who have decided to contribute to Communitas on a monthly basis. At present Communitas has a total of 10 such individual benefactors who donate a fixed sum to us every month.
Given the recent change in our funding base – with the end of Government financial support, this dependability of funding is very much appreciated in planning our activities for the future – be it Open Door, Table Talk, Prison Chapel activities, Prison In-Reach, Circles of Support and Accountability, the Sou’Wester or simply accompaniment of men recently released from prison.
I would encourage anyone who feels able to make such a monthly contribution to Communitas, to consider doing so. The monthly amount need not be onerous – any amount that you can afford will be greatly welcomed. To do so, visit our Donate page.
We hope to double the number of monthly donors from 10 to 20 by the next Annual General Meeting in May 2024.
Thank you for all the support that you provide to Communitas.
Michele Rattray-Huish, President/Treasurer
