The future of The United Church Observer depends on us being able to encourage more people to read the magazine, whether in print or online. It cannot be done without your help. The reality of publishing The Observer right now is that there simply aren’t enough funds in our regular budget to undertake the extra efforts that are essential to ensuring The Observer’s future.

Fortunately we have friends like you. By supporting the Friends of The Observer Fund, you demonstrate a commitment to the ongoing health of the publication and to generations of future readers.

We will use your support to strengthen our existing subscriber base and undertake new initiatives to boost the number of people who engage with us both in print and online. Your support helps us maintain our high editorial standards.  And it allows us to deliver the print magazine in packaging that is environmentally sustainable.

A tax receipt will be issued for your donation (Charitable Gifts #11906 4772 RR 0001).
