THANK YOU TO DONORS REPORT TO THE PICKERING COLLEGE COMMUNITY 2020-2021

47


THIS YEAR, MORE THAN EVER, THANK YOU.

There is an expression that those who work with donors share. It says something to the effect of, “don’t give to the institution as it was yesterday or is today, give to the institution you believe it can or will become.” This issue of Thank you to Donors is dedicated to those of you who have consistently shared our vision for what Pickering College can become. It is dedicated to those of you who have shared our hopes and persevered through our difficulties. It is dedicated to those of you who have kept the faith and who have always believed in the very best that Pickering College will be for the students in our care and therefore to the world beyond our four pillars. This issue of Thank you to Donors is our opportunity to express our profound gratitude to those who have done this through the financial support you have given to Pickering College. Our PC community is full of people who give their time, treasure, and talent to the school. Your financial gifts reflect a deep commitment to Pickering College that not only supports the work we do but inspires others within our community to care more, do more and give more to fulfill our mission. Your gifts are a direct support to the students, staff and faculty working together to develop courageous and compassionate global citizens who take action, true to Quaker values. By giving something of ourselves we also develop personal friendships that can extend connections to everyone in the community. This feeling of connection is eloquently expressed by Diane and Beric Farmer in their profile on page 58. It is a relationship that started the day they dropped off their son in Grade 1 and that has developed into a deep and meaningful involvement with the broader school community. We are so grateful for the relationship that Diane and Beric, and each of you, have with PC and the impact you have when giving your financial support. At the heart of it all, our job as a school is to give our students a sense of hope; that no matter what happens, there will always be hope. As a result of your generosity and faith in the work we do, we can continue to provide our students with that hope for the future. Thank you for believing in what our school can become and for believing in what our students can become. Because of you, we can be profoundly hopefully about our future. With sincere thanks,

Peter Sturrup Head of School

BERIC AND DIANE FARMER Making the world a better place

PC. It was many years where we supported where we could, attending events like the Holiday Home Tour. I did struggle with donating to PC when there are so many important causes. My thinking tied into the philosophy of PC—the sense that Pickering College is sending out a lot of graduates into the world with the mindset of trying to make the world a better place. It is possible that the benefits that the world sees from the donation that you give to Pickering College may be delayed by a few years, but it Beric credits Diane with first becoming immersed in school life is also possible that your giving is multiplied by the fact that all at PC when Chris began Junior School.

We do this tuition does not cover the complete cost of students attending for them, and for the better world they will build.” For many Pickering College families, enrolling their children can be the beginning of lifelong friendships, not just for their children, but for the entire family. Such was the case for the Farmer family, who like many, felt a strong sense of community from when their children first started at PC. Now graduates, Chris Farmer ‘17, and Jenna Farmer ‘20 benefited from an excellent education and built lifelong friendships for themselves at PC.

GREEN FUND

GREEN DESIGN FOR A GREEN FUTURE Establishing a Green Fund at Pickering College coincides with a time of transformational change. The school’s Campus Master Plan is ripe with opportunity to enhance campus spaces and provide classrooms and buildings equipped for modern learning needs. We are compelled to ensure these projects incorporate green practices. This is an opportunity that will impact future generations of Pickering College students. The Green Fund will be a means to limit our environmental footprint and model the stewardship values we instil in our students. Sustainability is not just part of science classes or outdoor education, but an important part of 21st century learning as we recognize that caring for the earth and the environment is key to being active global citizens. One potential addition to our green infrastructure could be a green roof atop the New Academic Building. If built, this roof would be visible from adjoining buildings and serve not only as a beautiful addition but as a constant reminder of the importance of action in support of the environment. To donate to the Green Fund at PC or find out more about green initiatives on campus, please contact Jessie-May Rowntree jrowntree@pickeringcollege.on.ca or call (905) 895-1700 ext. 234.

WAYS TO GIVE At Pickering College, we are inspired that our community—parents, alumni, Board and Corporation, staff, family and friends alike— demonstrate their commitment to the tradition of philanthropic support by donating so generously to ensure a bright future. There are many ways to make a gift to Pickering College: Gifts by credit card, cheque or cash You can choose to make a one-time or a monthly donation. One-time gifts are payable by cheque, credit card, or wire transfer. Monthly donations make giving easy—they are automated and payable by direct debit or credit card. Gifts of securities and mutual fund shares A gift of securities can include stocks, mutual funds and segregated funds. It is the most efficient way to donate. Since capital gains tax does not apply, it is a wonderful way to benefit both you and the school. Gifts of publicly-traded securities are simple to make; consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then, ask your broker to transfer your securities to Pickering College by completing the appropriate Transfer of Securities Form. Planned giving A gift in your will may be the biggest gift of your life. By joining Pickering College’s community of lamplighters, you will have the comfort of knowing that the legacy of your generosity will live on for future generations. The biggest advantage of giving through your estate is that it does not cost you anything during your lifetime. Matching gifts Matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations their employees make to charities. Please contact your Human Resources department to inquire about whether a matching gift is possible. Commemorative/tribute gifts Your donation can be made in honour of a teacher, advisor, coach or friend who has had a positive influence and made adifference in your Pickering College experience. Tribute Gifts can include: Dining Hall chairs and table dedications, and library resources through the Learning Commons Tribute Program.
