Direct Donations

Direct Donations

To donate through the direct donations, please go to Donations will offset the number/cost of any fundraising initiatives for the remainder of the year.

Every year, SAC receives multiple funding requests from staff and in-school programs. Many of these programs are not funded by the TDSB.

This year we have received less “direct donations” than previous years and we are at risk of not being able to fund important program asks including French, Art & Music. It’s even more critical with the increased pressure on the TDSB budget this year.

We ask that you please consider making a direct donation – the money raised funds vital programs in our school. $65 per child is the suggested number but any amount is welcome.

There are 2 easy ways to donate:

Online: in a new window

Cheque: Cheques should be made out to “John Wanless School Council.” – please provide to your child’s teacher

The Direct Donation program reduces the number of fundraising requests (and emails!) made through the school year and also allows us to eliminate the need to ask parents for approximately 200 volunteer hours a year.

For your reference, below is an example of the programs we have been able to fund in the past:
