Seeking a Treasurer
To whom it may concern: !
This letter is written on behalf of the Mount Doug Alumni Association. We are looking for a treasurer for our active board and wanted to know if your company happens to have any Mt Doug Alum that would be willing to join our board in that capacity.
Our board of directors meets every other month September to June on a Wednesday at 7 pm at Mt Douglas Secondary School in the library.
- The role of the treasurer would be:
- attend regular board meeting and give a financial report of our funds
- attend executive meetings usually a week before our board meetings
- monthly reconciliation of bank account
- write cheques for expenses & distribute
- deposit to bank account any funds received
- prepare financial reports for board meetings and our AMG
- issue charitable receipts and letters for all donations that come in by mail or at events
- liaise with the Victoria Foundation, along with the president, about our bursary funds
- complete and submit the annual T3010 return and submit to charities Directorate
- generally oversee the financial health of the MDAA
I believe firms such as yours often encourage their employees to be involved in the community and to volunteer and give back in some way. This would be the ideal position to fill that expectation. If you would like information on what some of our past, present and future projects/events are, feel free to contact me. I would appreciate a reply to this request, one way or the other, after speaking to your staff. Weʼd sincerely welcome them as a director/treasurer to our board.
Thank you for your time and attention to this request.

Fill The Foyer
Fill The Foyer is back at Mount Doug December 1 - 12
Let’s all work together to Fill-Our-Foyer with food and NEW toys to make Christmas special for our sponsored families. Each Christmas, Mount Douglas adopts a school with “Families in Need” to provide food for the families and toys for the children. It is an awesome, heartfelt tradition and one we would love to see you support. The Grad Council spearheads this ALL-school and community event but we are asking the help of all staff, students, parents, alumni, clubs and teams to make this food and toy drive a HUGE success.
