Providence Stewardship Policy

Providence University College and Theological Seminary is a registered charity (Canada Revenue Agency Reg. #10821 6714 RR0001). As an institution, Providence is audited annually by an independent public accounting firm and certified annually by the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. Our annual report and financial statements are available upon request.

Gifts toward an approved program will be used as designated with the understanding that when the need has been met, or if the project cannot be carried out for any reason, designated gifts will be used where needed most. Funds will be used only for programs approved by the Board of Directors.

Our general practice is to mail a single receipt for donations made annually between January 1 and December 31 of the current year. These are mailed after the close of each calendar year; however, receipts can be requested at any time. Gifts must be received or postmarked by December 31 to appear on this annual receipt. Gifts made towards Providence’s annual Harvest Festival Banquet and Golf Tournament will receive separate event specific receipts following the event date and donation amounts directed toward these events will not be included on the annual donation receipt.

Your confidentiality is important to us, and as such it is Providence’s practice to never pass donor names or information on to other organizations.
