Giving to Alpha
Alpha is 100% funded by donors like you
Alpha is completely free to churches and anyone who wants to run Alpha. By supporting Alpha, you're supporting our work with Churches and leaders running Alpha in their community. When a church is gifted with Alpha, they take on a huge investment and the impact of your donation grows exponentially. The return is far beyond anything we can see or imagine today and we know the church is being blessed and the gospel is spreading across our country and the globe. Will you consider a gift to Alpha and help make this possible for more people in the world to experience?
We are living in a post-Christian culture, where sharing your faith is becoming increasingly difficult, and people are becoming less likely to attend church if invited. The Church is facing a challenge and it requires a new response to engage culture effectively.
Alpha is a tool to equip the Church and its people in their mission to share the Gospel of Jesus. Alpha is run by churches to create a place for people within their community to invite friends, neighbours and co-workers to hear the Gospel of Jesus, around a table with a meal, in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Last year in Canada, 1842 churches and organizations ran Alpha, engaging 29,275 volunteers in their mission and reaching 74,910 guests with the Gospel. Alpha Canada comes alongside these churches to train, support and equip them, and to provide effective resources to help the church, all completely free of charge.

Training and Supporting Churches
Our staff meet with hundreds of churches and speak to thousands of church leaders every year to help them reimagine evangelism in their local church. Then we work alongside them to train and support them and their volunteer teams to run Alpha.
Resource Development and Innovation
Providing innovative tools and resources to churches running Alpha results in not only a better experience for the church, but a better experience for a guest on Alpha. This includes our work on the Alpha Youth Series, Alpha Builder, and our other digital and creative resources.
All of our work is supported by our financial and operational teams to ensure the best stewardship of all of our people and resources, and to increase our capacity and effectiveness in serving the church in Canada.

*Spending of funds is confined to board approved programs and projects. Each restricted contribution designated towards a board approved program or project will be used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason determined by the board, the remaining restricted contributions designated for such program or project will be used where needed most. An income tax-deductible receipt will be issued by Alpha Ministries Canada for gifts of $20 or more.
Alpha enables churches to work together towards a common vision, regardless of denominational, cultural and social composition. The past few years have been among the most exciting and rewarding in Canadian church history, due to the impact that Alpha is making in local churches across this nation.
