Giving

Like many independent schools, Edge depends on the support of the entire community – tuition and government funding alone do not support the ongoing needs of the school. Donations make the Edge School what it is today by strengthening our academics and athletics, enhancing facilities, and making it possible for student-athletes to attend Edge who may not have had the opportunity otherwise to do so.

The Edge School community is caring, involved and generous. We are deeply grateful for the many gifts provided to ensure every student-athlete at Edge has an exceptional academic and athletic experience in support of our funding priorities.

Together we can create world-leading learning and development experiences for student-athletes.

Together we can inspire student achievement and reward success through student awards.

Together we can demonstrate community leadership by enriching our student experiences and facilities.

Our alumni tell us their experiences at the Edge School were life changing. Unfortunately, for some students, the finances of an independent school education can be a significant barrier. Your donation can help students overcome these financial challenges and provide access to exceptional education and athletic development.

 

“Had it not been for the assistance we received, our daughter would not have been able to participate in this incredible opportunity. She is looking forward to developing new skills and growing as a student athlete.”

For more information about our funding priorities, or to donate via electronic funds transfer or cheque, please email dsilver@edgeschool.com or call 403-246-6432 ext.105.

Donating to the Edge School through your workplace giving program is an easy way to make a lasting impact on education and opportunity for student-athletes. You can direct your donation to the 'Edge School Foundation' using the Benevity or United Way donation platform connected to your workplace giving program.

Your contribution supports youth athletes to reach their full potential and makes an investment that will have a lasting impact in our community.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Did you know that you may be eligible to double or triple your donation to the Edge School at no additional cost? Corporate matching gifts allow you to do just that! If your employer offers a matching gift program, your company will match donations that you make to charitable organizations like the Edge School Foundation. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Find out if your company has a matching gift policy by contacting your Human Resources or Community Investment/Relations department.

Gifts of Securities

Do you know you can give shares instead of cash? Gifts of securities can have significant tax benefits and may allow you to give more than you might have thought possible.

To encourage individual charitable giving, the CRA does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities. This means that when you donate eligible securities or mutual funds directly to the Edge School Foundation, you will receive a tax receipt for the full value on the day the security is received. This advantage applies to large or small donations, although gifts that involve a capital gain of $1,000 or more make the tax benefits more attractive. We always recommend that you consult an advisor before making a gift of securities. 

Your donation will be eligible for the standard federal and provincial charitable tax credits, PLUS the capital gain elimination results in a larger tax credit. Contact the Edge School Foundation to process your gift; email dsilver@edgeschool.com or call 403-246-6432 ext.105.
