Richmond Hill United Church (RHUC) has an annual operating budget of over $450,000, and undertakes substantial capital expenditures each year to maintain an historic sanctuary and other operating facilities in the heart of the old town of Richmond Hill.
RHUC also contributes almost $60,000 each year to the Mission & Service Fund of the United Church, which provides support and assistance to those in need in Canada, and around the world.
These expenditures are funded in their entirety by contributions from members of RHUC, and from “Friends of RHUC” – people who are not members but value the work that RHUC does.
Members make commitments each year (Pledge form) to support the work of RHUC through financial contributions to the operating budget, and to the Mission & Service Fund, through the Generous Spirit program either by placing a contribution on the offering plate each Sunday during worship or by authorizing direct deductions from their bank account each month. To receive envelopes for the weekly offering or to arrange for pre-authorized remittances (PAR) from your bank account, please contact Deb Fratin, Office Administrator, Richmond Hill United Church at 905-884-1301, extension 5.
Richmond Hill United Church is a registered charity. Tax receipts are issued at the end of each year.

Help raise funds for Richmond Hill United Church (RHUC) and purchase a Cash Card! Cash cards are another name for gift cards, except you don’t have to use them just for gifts. You use cash cards to do your weekly/monthly shopping. Cash cards make great gifts too!
Here’s how it works: let’s say that you shop for groceries at No Frills, and you spend at least $100 a month at No Frills. If you “buy” a $100 No Frills cash card through our fundraising program, you give us $100 and we give you a $100 back in the form of a No Frills cash card. It doesn’t cost you any more, and you can use the No Frills cash card to buy $100 worth of groceries at No Frills just like you always do. In the meantime, RHUC is paid $4 for selling you that $100 cash card. Cash cards pay back 3 - 10%!
Through our Cash Card program, you can buy cash cards from dozens of merchants: all major grocery stores, gas stations, hardware stores, such as Indigo, Tim Hortons, Star Bucks, Home Hardware, Rona, The Bay, Winners, Jack Astor's, Moxie's Classic Grill, Pizza Pizza, Petro Canada, Shell, Shoppers Drug Mart, Staples, Pier ! Imports and more!
See the attached order form for a full list of the merchants participating. Please submit your order forms by the last Monday of each month.
Order forms can be brought into the church or mailed with payment cheque (payable to Richmond Hill United Church) attached. Cash cards will be available for pick up on the following Sunday at church.
Call the church office at 905 884-1301 ext.5 if you have any further questions. Thank you for your support!
