In accordance with CRA, charitable tax receipts cannot be issued to businesses for sponsorship of events. CRA defines a sponsorship "when a business makes a donation to a charity and, in return, receives advertising or promotion of its brand, products or services. Providing sponsorship to a charity or to a charitable event is not a gift, and a charity generally cannot issue a receipt for sponsorship."
SJR will issue invoices for receipt of payment to businesses in place of a charitable tax receipt. Should the business opt out of receiving recognition, a tax receipt can be issued. This applies to businesses only.
Individuals will receive a tax receipt in the full amount minus a portion of the ticket price.

SJR is proud to be accredited and affiliated with several local, national and international educational organizations.
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
