  • Gifts of Property

    Gifting property such as a cottage, home, rental property or undeveloped land is a wonderful method of charitable giving that can provide donors with tax relief. Upon proof of appraisal, donors can receive a tax receipt equal to the value of the property being donated. The donor may also avoid paying taxes on the capital gains that would be realized by the property at time of sale by donating it to RNS.
  • Gifts-in-Kind

    We are always in need of items such as quality athletic equipment, art supplies, library resources and furniture. If you wish to donate items to RNS, we'd love to hear from you. We can issue tax receipts upon receipt of certified appraisals of your donation.

A Tribute in Donations

Rothesay Netherwood School will gratefully accept donations in memory of someone or in honour of someone or a special occasion. We would be pleased to send a notification card to the family or appropriate person on your behalf as well, if you would like us to.

Many of our alumni choose to mark their anniversary of graduation or other special occasion with a celebratory gift to the school. This is also a unique way to celebrate a milestone event, or to provide a gift for a hard-to-buy-for-person.
 
As well, a number of alumni and friends have indicated that they have chosen Rothesay Netherwood School as the preferred charity for their memorial donations.  Combined with a bequest, this is a wonderful way to start a personal endowment to create a scholarship which would help future students.

In Tribute donations will support the area of greatest need, or may be directed by the donor to another area of need at the school.  Click here to view a list of named bursary and scholarship funds.  Some donors also choose to honour loved ones by naming a tree, chair, room, or bursary fund in tribute. Click here for more information about these opportunities.

Should you wish further information about in tribute donations, we would be pleased to speak with you. Please contact Judy MacFarland in the Development & Alumni Affairs Office at 506-848-0879 or via email at giving@rns.cc
