Benevolences

Benevolent giving is the way in which St. Andrew’s gives support to a variety of mission work & social justice organizations outside our own congregation.   The Ambassador teams  (Social Justice, Earth Care & Mission) make their recommendations to Session as to the organizations to receive funding for that funding cycle.    The final donation amounts & choice of organizations is agreed by Session for a 2-year giving cycle.
