  • Issuing of Tax Receipts

    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 of their sponsorship minus a portion of the ticket price and family memory book.

  • Do the proceeds support SJR?

    Yes, proceeds from the Gala will support campus sustainability to ensure our campus grounds and all our buildings are maintained and preserved for today and generations to follow. Every year the School identifies current needs of the School. Campus sustainability has been identified as a priority through the Tom Bredin Athletic Centre Revitalization project and the SJR Foundation, Inc.

    Tom Bredin Athletic Centre Revitalization

    The Athletic Centre includes the Reimer Gym, the Riley Fitness Centre and the Dutton Memorial Arena.  In 2017, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Arena.  At that time, a facilities review was conducted and we concluded that our ice plant requires significant structural work and maintenance.  With an urgent need for remedial work, we explored options that would enable us to rejuvenate Dutton and further enhance our athletic offering, making these facilities inclusive and available to all.  The ice surface will be reduced from the International sized rink (200 feet x 110 feet) to an NHL sized rink (200 feet x 85 feet).  Dutton will also be converted to a field house from April to August with the installation of artificial turf, making Dutton a year-round facility.

    SJR Foundation, Inc. – Providing an Enduring Legacy

    Gifts made to the endowment are held by the SJR Foundation and remain at SJR in perpetuity.  The SJR Foundation was created in 1962 to manage funds endowed to the School for the provision of scholarships and financial aid, maintaining our beautiful campus and supporting ongoing education and classroom enrichment throughout the School.  The Foundation ensures the Capital is preserved and earns investment invoice to provide a reliable and sustainable annual allocation to the School.

    Campus Sustainability endowment supports the ongoing needs of our beautiful campus and preserves buildings and trees for generations to follow.

St. John's-Ravenscourt

400 South Drive
Winnipeg, MB, Canada
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.
