The Major Gift Program at Guelph Community Christian school is designed to support teachers, students, parents, facilities and general operating budget. All funds provided under the major gift program are considered donations that qualify for donation receipts for income tax purposes. A major gift at GCCS is considered a pledge or cash contribution of a minimum of $5,000 CAD in a given calendar year. All funding designations directly or indirectly provide savings to the operating budget and meet the most pressing budgetary needs.
Donation pledges represent the generous commitment of donors to contribute a specified amount of money to an organization over a predetermined period. These pledges can take the form of conditional donations, where payment is contingent upon the fulfillment of certain conditions, or unconditional donations, which are given without any specific requirements or stipulations.
