CORNER BROOK — Anyone wishing to make donations to the Rotary Arts Centre to be located on the first floor of city hall can now make those contributions through the City of Corner Brook.
Organizers developing the space are in the process of raising the money for the project and have asked the municipality, which is qualified by the Canada Revenue Agency to accept donations and to issue tax receipts for qualified donations, to receive contributions on the centre’s behalf.
All donations received would be held for the purposes of the capital and operational costs of the Rotary Arts Centre. The city’s role would include accepting the funds, maintaining records of the funds and the completion of any reporting to the Canada Revenue Agency.
In addition to approving the request during Monday’s public meeting, city council also authorized its director of corporate services as the person authorized to acknowledge donations on the official donation receipt.
