Matching Gifts

You may work for a company or organization that matches the donations of its employees, which would allow you to double the impact of your gift. Please speak to your Human Resources Department to confirm if your company matches donations and obtain the necessary forms.

Commemorative Gifts

Are you looking for a gift idea? Do you want to say thank you in a special way to a current or former teacher? If you wish to honour someone special, please consider sending a commemorative gift. We will send your honouree a card, you will receive a charitable tax receipt, and you will both have the pleasure of knowing that your gift is helping Trafalgar School and its students.

Memorial gifts celebrate the lives of our loved ones and friends who have passed away. This is a special way to recognize a special someone’s connection to Trafalgar.

Should you wish to donate a specific item that is on Trafalgar’s “Wish List”, please contact Sharon Cozens, Director of Advancement at (514) 935-2644, #237.

Donations of Securities
