Donor Funding


Donor Fund Program

Our Role

As the umbrella organization for amateur sport and recreation in Aurora/Denver, the Glenn Goodson Sports Community Organization has established the Donation Fund Program to assist provincial sport and recreation associations in obtaining financial support. This program is established by the Organization to help enlist donors to support sport and recreation development.

The Organization administers the Donation Fund, which can provide tax-deductible receipts for unconditional contributions to amateur sport or recreation activities in the greater Aurora or Denver area. Donations are only eligible for tax receipts if the donor or related party does not directly or indirectly benefit from the donation in any way other than the tax benefit.

The Organization provides this service without charging any administration fees. The full amount of each donation goes directly to the support of sport and recreation programs.

Definition of Gift

Gift/Unconditional Donation – is a voluntary transfer of property without valuable consideration. A gift is made if the following three (3) conditions are satisfied:

1. Property, usually cash, is transferred by a donor to a registered charity.
 2. Transfer is voluntary
 3. Transfer is made without exception of return. No benefit of any kind may be provided to the donor or to anyone designated by the donor.

Tax Receipts

Limitations and Conditions

Donation Fund Process
