The 2364 Leonard Birchall Pavilion Project

A Success! The Leonard Bichall Pavilion Project is now fully funded…and then some! With a new gift of $16,000 from Class of 1973 your generous donations total over $920,000, way over our $900K goal! This overage will allow some extras, such as a small sitting area to place Commemorative Benches. Thank you again for your enthusiasm! Thank you 9721 David Snook for winning over your classmates.

A live webcam is coming soon so you can watch Pavilion construction!

Class of 2001…Correction…In last Veritas we reported a gift of $30,000 made in 2006 by Class of 2000. This was in fact CLASS OF 2001. Thank you again to all of you and especially to 22085 Capt. Kris Reeves for convincing your classmates. I apologize for my error.

Consider a Gift of Stock for RMC programs of your choice
You can give a gift of stock to RMC as a portion of your gains on investment winners like BCE, RIM or any others. This James Daw article, reproduced from the Toronto Star, calculates what portion to donate to completely cancel out any tax on Capital Gains. http//www.rmcclubfoundation.ca/en/docs/giving/Scan.jpg

Wouldn’t you prefer a gift back to RMC rather than to Canada Revenue Agency?
You simply donate a portion of your appreciated stock, as a transfer between accounts, rather than sell it. It’s simple and details may be found on the RMC Club Foundation website at:
