“Lift Us Up” / Elevator Fund Campaign


Update. We are disappointed to advise that our Grant Application for the Lift has, once again, been denied “given the high number of applications received and the limited funding envelope”. This means we depend more on you and your willingness to donate to this project.

Background. Over the past 125 years, St. Andrew’s in Prescott has completed many improvements to the building that have allowed it to become a focal point in our community.

The addition of handicap washrooms, internal ramps and automatic door openers has greatly increased the accessibility of our building. We are now committed to adding an elevator lift between floors that will allow those with mobility issues to have easy access to washrooms and the lower halls.

To that end, the Board of Managers has started a campaign to raise $50,000 to install the elevator. Plans have been made and now all we need are the funds. We have already received donations of approximately $20,000.

We invite you to “LIFT” us up.  Donations of any amount are welcome. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more.  For donations of $500 or more, you will receive honourable mention on a plaque and the satisfaction of enhancing the lives of those who would like to come to the many community events that happen here at St. Andrews.  You will have the satisfaction of adding to a beautiful landmark in our community.

Donations can be dropped off at the church or mailed to Box 94, Prescott, K0E 1T0.  For more information, please call (613) 925-3725,
