We have been both a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity entitled to provide receipts for donations for many years. We have not mentioned this much in the past because we are grateful for all of you who choose to become members of our organization and have preferred not to reach out to you for financial contributions. With changes and limits on funding from the Ministry of Education, we are engaging in financial creative and critical thinking so our work can continue. Please know that all of us on the CODE Board are volunteers who donate our time and labour on behalf of dance and drama in education.
CODE has a number of projects in progress. We are updating and embedding TRC work into our existing resources and creating French Resources. We have just completed a massive website update to speed up and improve your access.
You may choose where your donation is used:
- Resource Development and Revision
- Advocacy work on behalf of Drama and/or Dance
- Website Development and Maintenance
- Wherever CODE needs to use your contribution
You can choose to donate anonymously or to have your name listed as a Donor. No amounts will be listed. We are choosing not to list amounts on the assumption that we all do what we can when we can whenever we donate to a charity. Receipts will be issued for donations of $25.00 or more.
You can choose to make a donation in memory of someone who was passionate about Dance and Drama or to wish a friend Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary by celebrating Dance and Drama. We would state that a Donation was made to honour that person and name them if you wish.
We will accept an E-Transfer to: firstname.lastname@example.org and will also accept cheques made out to: Council of Ontario Drama and Dance Educators and mailed to:
