At Our Lady of Grace, it is our goal to grow students to become creative and critical thinkers who integrate Gospel values into their daily lives. Charitable giving to help people who are less fortunate is one of the ways we can foster these values in our students. ShareLife is the charitable arm of the Archdiocese of Toronto. It supports more than 40 Catholic agencies that serve people who are poor and marginalized in the Archdiocese of Toronto and beyond.
There are so many people who have been greatly affected in this pandemic and ShareLife has been there to support programs that help people in need in our community. People suffering from mental health illnesses, isolated seniors, young mothers and their children, newcomers to Canada and individuals with special needs.
Traditionally, we ask our community to support our school with a charitable donation of a loonie or toonie. From April 6 to April 9, to honour current Covid-19 protocols, we ask you to consider making that same donation electronically. To make an electronic donation to our school’s ShareLife campaign you will need to follow a two-step process.
Step One – Make an e-transfer from your bank account to ShareLife2021@ycdsb.ca.
Please note: No security question and answer is required as this is an auto deposit account. If a security question/answer is set up your deposit cannot be completed. The minimum donation amount for a tax receipt is $10. All tax receipts will be issued by ShareLife. Many financial institutions have waived their e-transfer fees due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Step Two – Complete this YCDSB 2021 ShareLife Campaign Form
Before you complete the form, please send your donation by e-transfer from your bank account to ShareLife2021@ycdsb.ca. Filling out this form will allow the school to track your donation so your contribution can be added to our school’s tally. This form will also allow for a charitable tax receipt to be issued to you from ShareLife if your donation is $10 or more.
As always, thank-you to all members of our community for your continued support and generosity.
