FaithLife Financial Action Teams* are inspired by the passion of our members to volunteer and give back! We share a common belief that we can do more with our time and money to make a difference – together.
What are Action Teams?
It’s a simple process and all it takes is one member who is passionate about the opportunity to LIVE Generously NOW! Here’s how it works:
- As an adult member (16 years or older) of FaithLife Financial, consider an unmet need in your community and how you and a team of volunteers could help to make a difference.
- Apply to conduct an Action Team and receive financial support to launch a fundraiser or service project.
- When your project is approved, you’ll receive an Action Team start-up kit, which includes:
- $150 cheque in seed money to help fund your event or service project
- LIVE Generously NOW t-shirts for your team
- Planning and promotional materials
- A banner to inspire engagement at your event
- Stickers to share with volunteers and participants
Note: You must apply for the Action Team Benefit 4-5 weeks before your event or service project. This benefit will not be awarded post-event.

Action Team Resources
How can the seed money be used?
The seed money is not a gift or a grant. It’s an investment to help get your project started or to help you gain awareness for your fundraiser or service project. The seed money cannot be donated directly to the charity or cause as a gift of $150. The seed money is meant to help you fund an event or service project to hopefully grow the amount you will donate to your charity or cause.
How often are members eligible to organize an Action Team?
Any FaithLife Financial member is eligible to lead an Action Team once in the given calendar year.
Does each action team need to be a separate fundraiser or service project?
Each Action Team must be a separate fundraiser or service project, however, members can raise funds for the same cause.
- One FaithLife Financial Member could apply for a pancake supper to raise funds for a cause they care about, and another FaithLife Financial adult member could apply for a coffee/dessert night and raise funds for the same cause or for another cause that they care about.
- Members are free to choose the charities that they would like to support with their Action Team, however please note that all applications will be reviewed for suitability at the sole discretion of FaithLife Financial.
*FaithLife Financial’s benefits, grants and programs are not contractual. They are subject to change and maximum funding limits.
