Belfountain is Small and Mighty, but We Still Need Your Help

We are providing additional information to the residents of Belfountain regarding the Community Garage Sale Saturday September 25th from 11 am – 3pm.  

We are asking for your help to raise funds for our community.  This is a fundraiser to help all of us defend against the serious threatening issues and significant financial impacts from the Manors of Belfountain development and the Erin Wastewater plant. 

We would like to attract as many people as possible to our garage sale.   Please copy and paste to send this link (not this email) to everyone you know and encourage them to come and spend their money here for a great cause.

The sale begins at 11am and ends at 3pm.  There will be a great band, representatives from the Coalition for the West Credit River and sale tables at the corner of Forks of the Credit Rd and Old Main beside the green building.   We expect that people will be walking along the roadsides to visit the tables at the end of the driveways.   We have asked everyone to maintain social distancing.

Please email salamander@belfountain.ca  if you intend to participate and are putting your items at the end of your driveway. Please coordinate with your neighbours if that makes sense for you.  If you have items for sale that you would like to donate but will not be able to put out a table, please drop them off before 9am at South East corner of Forks of the Credit Rd and Old Main Street. 

If you are willing to volunteer to help carry stuff, work at the tables, etc., please email salamander@belfountain.ca

Please contribute to protect our small and beautiful hamlet. Once you have sold your goods and the garage sale is over, we hope you will share your profits by donating all or a portion using these methods.   If you prefer to give the cash you have received, there will be a central donation box at Forks of the Credit Rd and Old Main from 3pm – 4pm.  Please give generously to the BCO through your garage sale efforts.    If you, or someone you know, are unable to participate and would like to donate , you can do so by either of these methods:

  1. Donating directly to the B.C.O: 100% of donations made are used to pay legal fees, experts’ invoices, and administration costs. No tax receipts are available.  The B.C.O. is an incorporated non-profit organization supported by volunteers. You can donate directly to the B.C.O. by cheque, cash or e-transfer by contacting  treasurer@ belfountain.ca, or click on the link below to use PayPal at BCO to support the initiatives. 100% of donations made are used to pay legal fees, experts’ invoices, and administration costs. No tax receipts are available.  The B.C.O. is an incorporated non-profit organization supported by volunteers. B.C.O. administration costs are outlined in our financial statements which are reviewed publicly at the Annual General Meeting and posted to our website.

 

  1. Donating through Small Change Fund: For those of you who would like a tax receipt, we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Small Change Fund.  When you donate $25 or more to either project, you will receive a tax receipt.  SCF does retain a percentage of the funds donated to support the services they provide as outlined on their website. Choose the project: (Manors of Belfountain Subdivision) Belfountain-needs-your-help or/and  (Erin Wastewater Treatment Plant)  Cut-the-crap-save-the-credit .  As projects are resolved and donations received are higher than the invoices for the project, the overage will be applied to the most urgent of the remaining issue.

Belfountain may be small, but we are mighty when we work together
