On-line donations surprise

Winnipeg, Man.— The success of on-line donations to Mennonite Church Canada via the MC Canada web site is surprising planners.

Al Rempel, director of resource development, is enthused by the possibilities. “We have not heavily promoted this capability, and yet people are finding it. It’s a low cost way of inviting people from the church and beyond to invest in God’s mission,” he added.

Since going live in November, 2002, the capability has facilitated over $11,000. “We do not know whether these donations came only because of the on-line method. What is important to us is that our donors have found it to be convenient and safe.”

“I’d like to invite visitors to the web site to read news stories about God’s work in the world and then consider making a donation,” said Rempel.

Readers can log onto the site at www.mennonitechurch.ca. The ability to donate on-line is offered as a courtesy to non-profits through the organization CanadaHelps.org.
