US Donations via FRISBE
With the help of FRISBE, United States tax-payers may now make donations to Rosseau Lake College with the added benefit of a charitable tax receipt recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.
Rosseau Lake College has always welcomed international students, many of whom have donated to the school regularly over the past 50 years. While Canadian tax receipts issued by RLC cannot be honoured if you are currently a United States tax-payer, you do have the option of making a gift eligible for an American tax receipt by making a contribution to Friends of Independent Schools and Better Education (FRISBE) and requesting that FRISBE make a grant to NJC.
Friends of Independent Schools and Better Education is a tax-exempt U.S. non-profit organization whose purpose is to “promote and encourage educational institutions that emphasize scholarship, sportsmanship, moral character and individual responsibility and initiative.” As our parents and alumni know, these are all pursuits encouraged at Rosseau Lake College.
FRISBE is entirely run by volunteers and charges no fee for their service. Directing a donation to RLC through FRISBE will provide you with an American tax receipt and the school will benefit from your philanthropy in whichever way you choose—whether that be through Campus Improvements, Scholarships, Bursaries or Area of Greatest Need.
If you would like to donate to Rosseau Lake College and would appreciate an American tax receipt, please fill out our FRISBE donation form and let Sarah Morison, our Director of Advancement, know to expect your donation. She may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More Information about Friends of Independent Schools and Better Education
Friends of Independent Schools and Better Education (FRISBE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt corporation that promotes and encourages educational institutions that emphasize scholarship, sportsmanship, moral character and individual responsibility and initiative. We support the activities of such institutions principally through grant-making activities, which are funded by charitable contributions to us from the general public.
Individual contributors usually request that we make grants to specific educational institutions. All contributed funds are under the direction and control of our Board of Directors, and it is our policy not to accept any contribution that requires a grant to a specific institution. However, where a grant to a named institution will further our charitable purpose, the donor’s request will be honoured. Organizations which receive our grants must qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the internal Revenue Code of 1954.
The FRISBE Board of Directors meets twice a year to consider grants. At our March meeting, we consider grants based on the contributions we received between July 1 and December 31 of the prior year. At our September meeting, we consider grants based on the contributions we received between January 1 and June 30 of the current year. Because FRISBE is entirely managed by volunteers, we do not take any fees for our services.
