Acting in Crisis: Action Teams

FaithLife Financial is inviting you to support your communities during the COVID-19 crisis through our new temporary benefit:

ACTING IN CRISIS… Action Teams*.

What are Acting in Crisis Action Teams?

FaithLife Financial Acting in Crisis Action Teams* are inspired by the passion of our members to volunteer and give back during COVID-19. We share a common belief that we can do more with our time and resources to make a difference – together. You may apply to lead a service project or a fundraiser Action Team either virtually or in person, to help meet the needs in your communities, as long as you are following social distancing guidelines outlined by health officials. This benefit is available to FaithLife Financial adult members (16 years or older)** who lead an Acting in Crisis Action Team.

During this time, you will be sent a condensed Action Team kit.  If you have applied before, you will notice that there are other items that would normally come with an Action Team Kit. These items are not available for this temporary Acting in Crisis Action Team benefit.

You will receive the following items once your application is approved:

  • $150 cheque*** to help fund your event or service project
  • LIVE Generously NOW t-shirt (1 per application)
  • Information and Tracking Guide, Volunteer Sign-in/Photo Release Form (sent via email)

Note: This benefit will not be awarded post-event.

Please note: On the second question in the application, it asks you to enter the name of the church or charity you would like to support. To manually add the cause you would like to support, type in the code COV in the space provided and you will be prompted with a link to click on to manually enter the details.

If you would like to support a cause or charity unrelated to COVID-19, please reach out to our Fraternal team at actionteams@faithlifefinancial.ca  to discuss your idea.

***The seed money is not a gift. 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.
