The Annual Giving Campaign (AGC) is a direct fundraiser where parents / guardians / community members can donate to the Home & School Association and receive a tax receipt (for $25 and up) through our charitable status. We started the AGC several years ago so that students and parents did not have to sell items to generate funds for the school. Through our commitment to providing classroom enhancements such as greening initiatives, arts and science programs and technology purchases, or the once-in-a-generation projects like the current schoolyard revitalization, we have helped to improve many aspects of our children’s day at school.
The AGC is a way that families can give back to the school if they are not able to volunteer their time.
We suggest a donation of $25 per student that you have enrolled at Withrow.
WAYS TO DONATE:
- Interac email transfer: please send a transfer to email@example.com – it is automatically deposited – no secret words required! This is the easiest way (and no fees for H&S!) to donate. FOR A TAX RECEIPT: please put your name, an d full mailing address, of the person who requires the tax receipt in the information area.
- You can pay online via our Square account – it asks for your information so we can provide the receipt
- Personal cheque – please put your cheque in an envelope addressed to “Home & School” at the main office payable to “Withrow Home and School Association”. If there is more than one name on the account the tax receipt will be generated for the FIRST name unless otherwise stated.
Tax receipts are generated by the Ontario Federation of Home & School Associations (OFSHA) and are typically ready by March of the following tax year.
We all do and give what we can, and that’s what makes us such a fantastic community! Thank you all for your donations. Every little bit counts.
