Annual Family Donation Program
At this time of year we start a new school year with lots of excitement and we give thanks to have our children enrolled in an amazing school. At CCAA we have so many needs that are not funded by the TCDSB and therefore there is a need for fundraising to provide enriched learning experiences for our children.
Friends of Cardinal Carter is the fundraising arm of the school. Last year a direct donation campaign was started to eliminate the need for raffles and other fundraising events. Thanks to your generous donations we raised over $30,000.
This year our goal is $50,000 but we need your help! A suggested amount of $75 per student would allow us to purchase much needed items requested by our teacher community. While this is our goal, any amount is greatly appreciated. Friends of CCAA will send you a tax receipt for any donation of $20 of more.
How to donate
