Do all donations go directly to the cause or is there an administrative cost that my donation covers?

100% of donations go directly to fundraising initiatives.


What's the difference between sponsorship and donation?

Sponsorship is a cash or in-kind fee paid to an organization or group in return for advertising or promotion of its brand, products or services. Providing sponsorship to a charity or to a charitable event is not a gift and no tax receipt will be issued.


What if I want to donate a valuable item instead of cash, will I get a tax receipt?

Yes, we call this type of donation a “gift-in-kind”. The College will issue a tax receipt for the item based on the fair market value.
