As a community-based charity, we take a personal approach to donor recognition. We start with four basic rules:

  • All donations are gratefully received.

  • Donations of $25 or more receive an official tax receipt and thank you letter from our Board.

  • Donations of $1000 or more are listed on the Donor page of our website.

  • Donor anonymity will be respected if requested.

For individuals, families and businesses able to make a larger gift, we’ll discuss ways to recognize your leadership and generosity in our community, including a media release event, a donor profile on our website and recognition on our Donor Wall in the new lodge.
