Donations in support of the University of Alberta Baseball Club
The Alberta Sport Connection Donation Fund Program assists athletes and not-for-profit sport and recreation organizations in obtaining financial support. Donations are only eligible for tax-deductible receipts if:
1) the Donation is made “to” the Alberta Sport Connection for a minimum of $250, and
2) the donor or related party does not directly or indirectly benefit from the donation in any way other than the tax benefit. For example, you cannot pay a child’s participation fees and label such as a donation.
The appropriate provincial association – in this case the Alberta Amateur Baseball Council - receives the funds and must account for expenditures of the amount received. Alberta Sport Connection provides this service without charging any administration fees, which means that the full amount of each donation goes directly to supporting sport and recreation.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: To make this work most efficiently, we ask that you please fill out/use the Alberta Sport Connection’s pre-drafted letter form, attached as the page 4 of the package contained in the second link below.
- In the middle section, you would write “Baseball” on the line, and then check the box “Athlete Development”.
- You would ALSO fill out our (U of A Baseball) form (the following page)
