Charitable Giving

Kindred’s values-centred approach is woven into everything we do. We believe that community investments represent our ongoing support of important themes and value-based local causes and initiatives.

Each year, Kindred shares approximately $300,000 with our local communities through a variety of different programs and initiatives, like Kindred Charitable Fund and our Charitable Giving program. Churches and charities have the choice of which program or initiative best suits their needs.

Each sponsorship request is carefully evaluated using the following Kindred themes:

Inspiring peaceful communities means building healthy relationships through reconciliation, restoration, and building understanding locally and cross-culturally. It includes faith-based counselling, restorative justice, and family violence prevention programs in our communities.

Inspiring just communities focuses on advancing equality and sufficiency for individuals and groups living in society, ensuring dignity and respect for all. It means seeking social justice and it includes supporting food banks, shelters, low-income housing, and special needs programs in our communities.

Inspiring prosperous communities focuses on individuals or groups within a community bearing one another’s burdens, helping each other out in times of need. From its earliest days, Kindred has referred to this practice as mutual aid and we seek to encourage this support among our membership. Mutual aid includes supporting disaster relief efforts, faith-based schools, seniors’ homes, and the work of the church in our community.
