How to donate

Thank you for making Glenlyon Norfolk School a philanthropic priority! To serve you better, we offer several ways to make a donation to the school.


Online

Donate with confidence on our secure server here.


Mail or Phone

If you would like to mail your donation, please send it directly to the school, care of:
Advancement Office, 801 Bank Street Victoria, BC V8S 4A8

Cheques should be made payable to the Glenlyon Norfolk School Foundation.


Monthly or quarterly giving

Monthly giving is a great way of maximizing the impact of your gift, while at the same time, minimizing your gift’s impact on your pocketbook. Spreading your donation out over equal monthly or quarterly installments is a great way of making a real impact AND keeping it manageable.

You might choose to make monthly donations to the school for a prescribed period of time, or until you reach a specific amount, or, you might like to leave your gift open-ended. We’ll send you one receipt at the end of the year.

If you’d like to sign up for monthly or quarterly giving or if you would like to use your credit card to make your donation, please call our office at 250.370.6854.


Gift of mutual funds or securities

The 2006 Federal Budget made donating securities a very attractive option for many donors because it eliminated capital gains on any publicly listed securities and mutual funds that are donated to a registered charity.

Things to consider when making a Gift of Securities:

  • Highly appreciated securities provide the means to make a low-cost significant gift.
  • Before you donate securities to GNS, make sure you contact our Advancement Office. We will provide you with the information you and your broker need to make giving securities easy and will discuss with you how you would like the eventual proceeds from your gift of securities put to use.
  • The school will issue you a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the gift for you to use in your personal tax return. The fair market value will be the closing price of the securities on the date the securities are delivered or transferred to Glenlyon Norfolk School.

Making a gift of securities is easy. Simply have your broker fill out the Gift of Mutual Funds or Securities to the Glenlyon Norfolk School Foundation form.


Donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle

GNS has partnered with Donate a Car Canada to make gifting a vehicle a simple and novel way to give.

Donate a Car Canada now accepts Vehicle Donations for Glenlyon Norfolk School Foundation. Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to Glenlyon Norfolk School through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction (depending on its condition, age and location). Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for Glenlyon Norfolk School to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, Glenlyon Norfolk School Foundation will send you a tax receipt and will put your gift to good use.

Naming Opportunity

A gift to the WONDER Campaign is an opportunity to help shape and elevate the learning environment for our students. This is a unique opportunity to match your passions with GNS’s plans by making a named gift donation. It is a chance to create a legacy for yourself, to recognize a loved one, or to honour a special former or current staff member.

Making a named gift creates a long-lasting reminder of your commitment to the school for all to see and celebrate, now and in the future.

If you are interested in learning more about the WONDER Campaign naming opportunities, please contact Chad Holtum here.
