We want to…

So what’s a Gift Catalogue (GC)?!

It’s a list of Educational Enrichment Resources and Activities that you can “purchase” through donations to LBP.

You can make direct donations…

Or give a “Gift of Learning” at a special occasion (Birthday, Christmas, New Year, Mothers & Fathers Days, etc.

why do we need a gc
Why do we need a GC?

The Ontario Government through the TDSB funds our children’s education, but

Finances continue to be stretched every year

The “Essentials” are being provided, but there is very little left over to support “Enrichment”

Enrichment enhances our children’s learning experience

And we want to simplify and coordinate our fundraising efforts at school

why would i want to give gifts to lbp
Why would I want to give Gifts to LBP?

Most of us (23 Million Canadians) make charitable donations every year

Our children’s success at school is very important to all of us

100% of what we give to LBP is spent on the items and activities designated

We can see the results for ourselves

Income tax credit is a bonus

how are the needs identified

Students, Parents and Staff identify priorities… formally and informally

Staff develop a School Improvement Plan

Costs are actual and may be represented as a total or as a “share” of the item cost or school’s annual budget for that category
