What is Legacy?
A bunch of individuals who share common beliefs got together and decided it was time for ‘good friends – greater deeds’. We want to create and support new, fresh, local initiatives that donors can ‘see and touch’ and relate to. The group decided local high school scholarships – SJH alumni - golf as its’ first project in 2015, with plans to expand to the offering to all schools in the region in 2016. We have plans for other projects in 2017 and beyond.
Can I join Legacy?
Yes you can. We will be actively recruiting new members and new ideas in September when the tournament is over. If you would like more information please email email@example.com.
Will I receive a tax receipt?
Yes, a portion of your golf fee is eligible for a charitable donation receipt. That amount will be announced shortly. For reference purposes, it was $60 in 2015.
Can I pick who I would like to play with and which course?
Yes you can. If you aren’t registering a foursome, we will do our best to accommodate your pair or trio. We may have to shift some around as courses fill, however.
Do I have to be SJH alumni to attend?
No you do not. Grey pants and a blue collared shirt are not a requirement. Everyone is welcomed.
I hate golf but love the cause - can I just donate?
Yes you can do that here. You can even just join us for dinner if you would like.
Can I donate a prize?
Absolutely! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to accept your item.
Do I need a PayPal account for registration?
No you do not. You can simply put your credit card information in and then pay. PayPal is a secure website and your information will not be saved in our database.
Where does the money go?
Proceeds from the SJH golf tournament will be distributed to the 21 local high schools. The Legacy Golf for Scholarships (GFS) program has fundraised $180,000 in 2015 and 2016. To date, 21 scholarships totally $109,500 have been delivered to deserving students within Waterloo Region. The remaining funds are held in trust by the school board designated for future scholarships.
