Donate Financially

Praise God that the WLA Cares fund has been donated to faithfully during the year. We do not require any additional financial gifts at this time. We would prefer to see our congregation participate in the various drives (listed below) rather than give financially. However, if you are unable to collect and donate items, but would still like to participate, you can donate by cheque or etransfer. Please include ONLY "WLA Cares" on the memo line of a cheque addressed to West London Alliance Church. This also applies to etransfer donations - include "WLA Cares" in the message box.
