I SUPPORT Our Churches Campaign
Last month, a new fundraising campaign called I SUPPORT St-George Cathedral was launched to provide much needed financial support for our beloved cathedral. The scope of this campaign has now expanded to include our 5 churches: Evangelismos tis Theotokou Church, Koimisis Tis Theotokou Church, Holy Cross Church, St. Nicholas Church and St. John the Baptist Church.
What is the I SUPPORT Campaign?
The I SUPPORT campaign is an ambitious initiative to ensure the future of our Cathedral and our churches, and by extension, the vibrancy of our Greek Orthodox community in Montreal.
The pandemic has been tremendously difficult for our community on multiple fronts: our cathedral and our churches have not been spared. However, with God’s blessing and the support of its constituents, our Bishops, Priests, Ladies Philoptochos, Ladies Auxiliary, and church volunteers have mobilized to undertake fundraising activities, such as the take out lunches, to ensure that our beloved cathedral and churches have the needed resources to sustain their operations throughout the pandemic. Together they are now launching this important fundraising initiative to further support the ongoing operations, repair and maintenance of our churches.
Oversight on the Progress
As always, funds raised will be held in a segregated bank account for each church. Like with the Cathedral, each church will establish their own Fundraising Committee who together with the Priest of that church will provide continued oversight on the funds raised and projects undertaken. In addition, global accounting firm EY will continue to provide an independent audit, through the annual audit of the HCGM.
How do I SUPPORT?
If you wish to be part of our blessed story, you have the option of a recurring monthly donation or an annual, one-time donation. You can show your support here: https://hcgm.org/donate/. Your contribution is tax deductible, with an automatic donation receipt. You can also dedicate your donation in honour of or in memory of a loved one. Additionally, using the matching gift lookup tool, Double the Donation, you can access all the information you need to verify if, and then, engage your employer to match your donation.
As a community, we must come together to ensure that the Cathedral remains a beacon and our churches remain at the center of our Greek Orthodox community for years to come. This initiative is one of the most important efforts towards this goal.
