Donations by cheque

Make donation cheques payable to the UELAC and indicate on the cheque which branch, fund or project the donation is for. For donations to the Memorial Fund / Book of Remembrance, be sure to include the form. Any cheque with no donation specified will be deposited to the General Use Fund. Mail donations to:

Online donations

Donations to UELAC may be made electronically through the website. A link will be made for key words such as United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, UELAC, or UEL. Canada Helps issues a tax receipt for the donation. When UELAC is notified, an appropriate acknowledgement is made, based on the information given.

Donations of shares

Donations of Shares to UELAC. When a donor wants to make an "in kind" donation of shares, the UELAC provides detailed information to Wood Gundy who completes the process for the UELAC.


Tax Receipts

Tax receipts will be issued for all monetary donations. The receipts will normally be issued when the donation is received.

  • For donations to branches, the tax receipt and a letter of appreciation will be sent to the donor. The treasurer will send a cheque to the branch treasurer.
  • For donations to branch projects, the tax receipt and a cheque will be forwarded to the branch. The branch will send the tax receipt and a letter of appreciation to the donor.

Non-monetary donations are allowed under Canada Revenue Agency regulations. However, the Canada Revenue Agency recommends that this type of donation be made by an exchange of cheques. In other words, the Association will pay the donor for the material donated and the donor will write a cheque to the Association for the same amount. This provides a clear paper trail for audit purposes.
