Every Sunday morning service there are two collections. The plate is to support the work of this chaplaincy but the bag is for charitable giving. A committee formed from members of the congregation decides how to distribute these funds and welcomes ideas from the entire congregation. Our policy is to support a wide range of charities with special emphasis on local needs or those in which members of the congregation have a personal interest. Several organizations are supported on an annual basis but most are one-off donations. Since we are not in a position to provide large amounts of money we try to support charities where our donation will make a real difference rather than very big organizations.
We also invite applications from groups (not individuals) who think they fall within our target range and where a small donation would be of benefit, possibly, for example, to sponsor a specific event. Nothing is promised but please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to make a contribution to the charitable giving fund the account is IBAN:
NL92 TRIO 0197723861 [t.n.v. Holy Trinity Church te Utrecht].
You can mention your name (unless you wish to remain anomymous) and if appropriate, a specific cause in the description (‘omschrijving’).
