Slave Lake's new Legacy Centre is a cultural gem in the region's crown. The Tree of Thanks that stands in the main foyer of the Legacy Centre pays homage to the individual and corporate donors who have helped make this remarkable and much-needed facility possible. The MD wishes to remind potential sponsors that "leaves" on the Legacy Centre's coveted Tree of Thanks are still available.
Each Donor will receive a charitable tax receipt. All Legacy Centre donors gain the same tax benefits as they would when donating to a registered charity. Donors receive a Province of Alberta Tax Credit of 10% for annual donations up to $200.00 and 21% for annual amounts beyond $200.00. The Federal Charitable Tax Credit is 15% on the first $200.00 and 29% on the amount over $200.00.
Level 5: $500 - $2,499
Level 4: $2500 - $9,999
Level 3: $10,000 - $24,999
Level 2: $25,000 - $49,999
Level 1: $50,000+
In appreciation of contributions (over $500), donors will be recognized on the Tree of Thanks which is located in the Legacy Atrium. The Tree of Thanks expresses the Legacy Centre's sincere gratitude for the generous contributions of its sponsors. The Legacy Centre's Founding Members, consisting of the 12 Corporate Donors and the Government of Alberta, are located on the trunk of the Tree. These donors are acknowledged their "root" funding which allowed the Legacy Centre Project to come to life. Each subsequent donation will be represented by a leaf on the tree with the respective family or company name. The leaf color indicates a given level of contribution.
Please visit the Legacy Centre website for more information on how individuals and organizations can contribute to the Tree of Thanks and help this vital facility prosper.
