Thank you for considering a gift to MEI. Your support helps young men and women to be leaders and to excel in the 21st century. Below are giving options.
Because tuition and the government grant we receive cover only a portion of the operational costs at MEI, and in order to keep tuition affordable, we depend on friends, alumni and families to partner with us to continue to maintain the highest standards possible.
MEI recognizes that tuition payments can be a challenge for many families and is committed to providing Christian Education to as many families as possible, regardless of economic status. Through the Bursary Assistance Plan, tuition is provided to families who would not otherwise be able to send their son or daughter to MEI.
Graduate Scholarship or Bursary
This is a wonderful way to remember a loved one, promote an area of interest, or increase the profile of a business or corporation by offering a scholarship to a graduating student that is planning on post-secondary education.
A donation that can be made through a legal will that allocates money, property, stocks or other material assets.
The ownership of publicly traded stocks, bonds, and mutual funds may be transferred to a charity at face value, in exchange for a tax deductible receipt. You can avoid paying capital gains taxes when you transfer securities while helping MEI at the same time.
Gifts in Kind
“Gifts in Kind” are defined as items of personal property excluding cash or securities whether owned by an individual, corporation, foundation or other entity, which are transferred
to MEI for ownership and use. It is of critical importance to have an appropriate and uniform process for the receiving and receipting of gifts in kind. A gift in kind may qualify as a charitable gift if it is a voluntary transfer of money or property for which the donor expects and receives nothing of value in return. Canada Revenue Agency IT-11OR3 – Gifts and Official Receipts regulate the receiving and receipting of such gifts.
Donor Restricted Gift Policy
Spending of funds is confined to programs and projects approved by MEI Schools. Should a donor choose to restrict a contribution for use in a particular program or project, MEI Schools will honour that restriction, with the understanding that, when the need for such a program or project has been met or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by the organization, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed at the discretion of the Head of Schools.
