About

The Canadian Reformed World Relief Fund (CRWRF) is a voluntary charitable organization based in the federation of Canadian Reformed Churches. The Fund presents an avenue for members of our supporting churches to respond to the needs of their distant neighbours.

Basis

The fundamental basis of the Canadian Reformed World Relief Fund is the infallible Word of God, as summarized in the Three Forms of Unity: the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dort. Our Scriptural basis for both immediate and long-term response is that Christians are called, as they have opportunity, to do good to all men, especially to those of the household of faith.

Purpose

We therefore have a simple purpose:

To give Christian charity to every area of the world that is in need of such.

We do this because Scripture teaches us to show generosity, charity, mercy and kindness to the poor, and in this way to reflect our thankfulness for the great salvation we have received in Jesus Christ.

Structure

CRWRF has a working board made up of volunteers who deal with the administration of the funds. Each member has a specific project they are responsible for or a defined role on the board (i.e. Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and Sponsorship & Relief) The board reports to the membership, who is, local Canadian and American Reformed Churches.
