The General Council Office supports the mission and ministry of the communities of faith and regional councils.  It is the denominational expression of The United Church of Canada, working ecumenically and in global partnership. The United Church of Canada is committed to our intercultural context, living in right relations with the Indigenous Church, anti-racism and equity, and French Ministries.

Within this context, The Philanthropy Unit is responsible for raising gifts for Mission and Service, which is the main source of funding for the ongoing work of The United Church of Canada. The Unit also provides staff support for The United Church of Canada Foundation which is focused on raising funds for the long-term work of the church.

They exemplify and model a donor centered approach and play a lead role in stewardship, moves-management, soliciting and closing mid-level gifts ($500 – $3,000). They bridge the gap between our annual donors and our major gift donors.  This engagement will encourage retention and upgrading while adding a personal touch for this unique donor group.
