A donation of a minimum of $500 Canadian per participant is required, preferably raised through individual fundraising and sponsorship.
This is to be used for the "bricks-and-mortar" fund and contributions to our partners. Specifically, this money will be used for
the purchase of our program materials for the local projects we'll be working on: for example, tools, cement, construction materials,
paint and building supplies. These will be purchased in the Dominican Republic.
Donation money will be due three weeks prior to departure in order to confirm the specific projects with our partners in the Dominican Republic. All donations are to be made payable to The Rotary Club of Oakville and will be tax-receipted if over $20.100% of money raised goes to the projects and the Rotary Club of Oakville acts as stewards of this money, facilitating an annual audit by a professional Chartered Accountant.
A booklet of 100 helpful fundraising suggestions can be found in the participant section.
"Fundraising for this trip has
made me even more excited about it . It was amazing to see the generosity of people who gave donations. I have never seen people so honoured to help out with raising money."
