To best achieve our core purpose, to inspire and cultivate citizens of Godly character who transform their world for Christ, funding beyond tuition and government subsidy is necessary. Our ability to sustain and develop excellent programs depends on the participation and generosity of every member of our school community, and others who feel led to give.
Each year we host two major fundraising events. – the WRCA Gala and the WRCA Golf Tournament. The gala and auction raises over $100,000 annually to support capital purchases such as internet infrastructure, library materials, and a school bus. The golf tournament helps fund bursaries for students who can’t afford all of the expenses associated with sports teams, and stipends to help support and develop our coaches.
In years past students would conduct poinsettia sales, bake sales, car washes, and other fundraising efforts to support our missions trips (now incorporated into our Service Program), benevolence fund, sports and arts activities. In 2011, all of these activities were combined into a single annual fundraising initiative in an effort to limit and simplify giving. All parents of existing students are asked to participate and show solidarity in this act of community generosity, to whatever degree they are able.
WRCA has embarked on an ambitious redevelopment project for the campus at 152nd street. This three phase project will expand the capacity of the school by over 33%, gradually eliminate the need for portables, and create the space necessary to efficiently deliver our programs. “Rooted Deep, Reaching High” is our fundraising campaign in support of this project. Please navigate the link below to get more information about our future building and capital campaign.
Gifts of Cash
Personal cheques and credit cards are the easiest way to make financial gifts to the school. In the case of the Annual Drive, simply include your cheque or credit card information with the donation remittance envelope provided and return it to the school. Cheques should either indicate or be made out to the fundraising initiative being supported. For example, for the Annual Drive, make the cheque payable to “WRCA Annual Drive”. Alternatively you may use the link below to donate online.
Gifts of Securities
Securities transferred to WRCA are sold upon receipt and credited to the annual Drive. The charitable deduction is determined by the fair market value on the date of transfer. An acknowledgement will be sent to you describing your gift, receipt of date, and value of your tax records. Contact our advancement office for more information.
There are many companies that match their employees’ gifts to charitable organizations. Discuss supporting WRCA with your company and have them be listed as a contributor. Contact our advancement office to get the process started.
