Q: Why is Brockton launching an annual giving campaign? Does my tuition not cover the school’s costs?
A: While your tuition does cover most of Brockton’s costs in providing students with a second to none educational experience, it does not cover many of the initiatives outlined in the Brockton School Strategic Direction. The aim of this annual giving campaign is to allow us to create a fund over time that can and will be used to realize our future goals. Adding the IB Diploma program and creating more space for students are some examples of these initiatives.
Q: Brockton is a private school. If I donate will I get a tax receipt?
A: Yes. The school is operated by The Brockton Preparatory School Society, a registered non-profit society that has the ability to issue tax receipts for charitable donations.
Q: Is there a minimum donation amount?
A: No. No donation amount is too small or too big.
Q: How do I know that my donation will not get lost in Brockton’s overall operating budget?
A: Donations to the Brockton Strategic Fund will be managed uniquely. They will be kept in a separate bank account. Donation cheques should still be made to Brockton Preparatory School with a memo reference for the Brockton Strategic Fund to ensure they are attributed to this campaign. Credit card donations will be credited automatically to this account.
Q: I would like to donate in the name of my child(ren). Is this possible?
A: Absolutely! All donors will be recognized officially on our website unless they wish to remain anonymous, so your child’s name could be included.
Q: Can I get a copy of the Brockton School Strategic Direction?
A: Yes. Please go to www.brocktonschool.com/strategic-direction. If you are a Brockton Parent you can also find a copy in your Parent Handbook.
Q: I give money to the United Way through my company’s corporate giving campaign. Can Brockton participate in this program?
A: Yes. Any donor to the United Way can designate the donation to go to any registered charity. You simply need to provide Brockton’s charitable registration number (86433 6342 RR0001). The school would receive a statement and the funds from the United Way.
