DONATIONS TO SCHOOLS
The Board believes that an adequate level of funding should be provided from tax revenues to ensure that an appropriate educational program is available to all students based on their needs.
Notwithstanding that belief, the Board recognizes the present lack of funding and the desirability of enhancing education to whatever extent is possible. To this end, the Board encourages donations to the District by parents and other interested parties. Unless otherwise directed by the donor, donations will be used to provide equipment facilities or services which are additional to these provided from taxation sources.
It is contemplated that the District may establish a Charitable Trust under its control, in which event donors are to be encouraged to make contributions to that Trust rather than to independent trusts, or societies. The District will obtain a charitable status under the Income Tax Act and will issue tax receipts for all donations wherever legally permitted.
