On Wednesday, April 23rd we sent out a Granite E-News email to inform members of a planned change to the way the Canadian Curling Association (CCA) handles tax-deductible donations of funds to be directed to local clubs. The announcement that we sent out is included below.
The Granite Board has recently been advised that, effective May 1, 2014, the CCA will be returning to the GCC only 75% of tax deductible donations made by GCC members. The remaining 25% will be kept by the CCA and put into their CAP (curling assistance program) from which it is unlikely the GCC would get anything.
Bottom line: if any members are contemplating making a donation to the GCC and would like a tax receipt, they should act before April 30, 2014 by bringing in to Denise a cheque payable to the CCA.
If you have any questions about making donations to the Granite contact the Treasurer at
The following day we received word from the CCA that the start date of the change was moving from May 1st to August 1st.
The treasurer has updated the Granite's guidelines for donations to reflect the changing situation at the CCA. You can see the updated guidelines here ...
As we said in the email, contact the Treasurer if you have questions about making donations to the Granite.
