The Outreach Opportunities Fund Committee selects outside organisations to receive a portion of the Sunday offering.
Outreach Opportunities Fund (OOF)
Chair: Yvonne Marcus
Statement of Purpose:
To distribute 25% of funds collected during the Sunday service to community charities, both those that are independent of the church and those that have some connection to the work of church teams. Priority is given to organisations undertaking social justice, refugee support and settlement and environmental sustainability work with a focus on vulnerable or other marginalised communities. Preference for funding is given to groups working primarily in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
Cecilia Gruber, Jennifer Malcolm, and Melody Mason
Three organisations will be selected to receive funds from OOF during the next year. In the past, the committee has chosen the recipients but we now ask members of the congregation to nominate local charities for consideration by the committee.
To nominate an organisation, please get in touch with Yvonne Marcus.
