Presbyterian World Service & Development is the development and relief agency of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. For over 65 years, our church has been actively working to serve marginalized and vulnerable people through Presbyterian World Service & Development. While the global context has evolved since PWS&D was first formed, what has not changed is a commitment to Christ’s message of love through justice, poverty reduction and support in times of disaster.

One Mission, Two Funds

Funding for PWS&D comes directly from Presbyterian congregations and individuals across Canada. Your generous gifts allow PWS&D to seek additional funding from government sources such as Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) and provincial councils, as well as through membership in other organizations such as Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) and Canadian Churches in Action (CCA).

Presbyterians Sharing is the name of the fund that supports the national programs and ministries of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. PWS&D does not receive funds from donations to Presbyterians Sharing. However, contributions from Presbyterians Sharing provides significant support for PWS&D administration costs – helping ensure PWS&D administrative costs are kept to a minimum and overseas program funding is maximized.
