Give to UCC Fund by Dec. 31 for tax receipt

The countdown is on. There are only 23 days until the end of 2016 and to make your charitable gifts to receive a 2016 tax receipt. If you haven’t done so already, we hope your family will consider making the UCC Fund part of your charitable giving this year.   Many members of our community have decided to include the UCC Fund a priority in their giving this year. They’ve directed their gift to areas such as the prep priority fund, athletics, financial assistance, boarding and many more.

Remember that you can donate to any area of the school that matters to you and your family and all gifts of any size make a difference. Like all independent schools in Canada, UCC is a charity and we rely on donations to offer our boys the exceptional opportunities here at UCC.  If you haven’t done so already, we hope your family will consider giving to the UCC Fund this year. If you’d like to make a donation and qualify for a 2016 income tax receipt, please note:

  1. Donations received by mail must be postmarked on or before Friday, Dec. 30.
  2. Donations by cheque may be dropped off to the school in person. While our offices will be closed on Dec. 23 and won’t re-open until Wednesday, Jan. 4. You may leave an envelope either in the mail slot in the front door or with the staff at the arena. Please ensure that your cheque bears a December date.
  3. Stock donations need to be received by our school broker’s assistant Jacqueline Pedford  on or before Friday, Dec. 23. Please contact the school for a stock transfer form.
