It’s the easiest on our Finance Committee volunteer parents’ precious time. Canada Helps instantly does the work of issuing you a tax receipt and takes 3.9% of all donations. You can also set up automatic monthly donations if you want.
Also, if you're donating via Canada Helps, you don't need to fill out the ALPHA Envelope Campaign Form (unless you want to give some feedback.)
We also earmark some funds ($2,850 of 17.5k)** for: • classroom enhancements and visitors ($1000), • play equipment ($500) • and committees ($1350, with $350 specified for indigenous programs). Most of this represents initiatives or wants identified by staff and students, and some by parents. We also give ($450) to an equity and over-and-under school fees fund in the school budget, administered by the principal. Our administrative costs (bank fees and website) have ranged from $116-600 over last 3 years. **Amounts from this year's 2017-18 draft budget:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxPZ39ikFRtVTk9DMUdIT3FsNzZDSkZKV3hMbWRObHZCNzlB/view?usp=sharingwhich was finalized at our November Parent meeting.
