War Canoe Fundraising Kickoff

Banook is happy to announce that we will be setting up a fundraising project with the National Sport Trust Fund to raise funds for the purchase of a brand new Bear Mountain C15 (War Canoe).

Donations of $20 or more made through the National Sport Trust Fund will receive a charitable tax receipt.  Funds raised to date have been used to put a deposit on a Bear Mountain War Canoe for delivery in the spring.

Our goal is to raise the remaining $17,625 by the spring to make this very important purchase possible.

We will be kicking off this fund raising initiative at the upcoming Taste of Mauritius Dinner on Jan 21st. Payments for your dinner tickets are to be made payable to Banook Canoe Club.  Donations above your dinner ticket should be made payable to the National Sport Trust Fund along with the attached form (download here).

This is an excellent opportunity to support the club as we strive to rebuild our War Canoe supremacy.

As always, all those who donate larger amount to such a Capital Campaign will be recognized on the Gold, Silver and Bronze plaques in the main Hall and our webpage as follows:

  • Gold Donors – $1,000 and up
  • Silver Donors – $500 to $999
  • Bronze Donors – $100 to $499
