Difference Making a 2009 ANNUAL REPORT


Difference Making a 2009 ANNUAL REPORT
Making a
This publication Making a Difference will be published annually by the Foundation and replaces the Gazette. It will focus on the
status of our fund-raising efforts, on our generous donors, and on areas
where your donations have made and continue to make a difference at
Copernicus Lodge. The past and current events at Copernicus Lodge,
previously featured in the Gazette, will be addressed by the Board’s publication, The Copernican, which will be published quarterly.
This annual report will now list all of the donations received
in the past year rather than cumulative life-time totals. Cumulative
totals can be obtained from the Foundation Office. These changes are
in keeping with our policy of reducing our administrative overhead.
The Foundation Office has been relocated to a more accessible
location for donors (main floor, Long-term Care Facility, room 167A,
opposite the elevators). You are very welcome to drop in and discuss
your donations or provide us with feedback and suggestions. Our new
office hours are: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday - 10 AM to 3:00 PM.
We hope that you enjoy the new format of our report and we
solicit your input and feed-back. Telephone: 416-536-7122, ext 252

Nowa publikacja, Making a Difference, będzie wydawana raz do
roku i zastapi Gazette . W centrum uwagi nowej publikacji znajdą sie nasze
starania o nowe fundusze oraz szlachetni dobroczyńcy. Przedstawimy także,
w jaki sposób zebrane fundusze wpłynely na korzystne zmiany w Domu Kopernika. Natomiast aktualnościami i wydarzeniami z przeszłości, opisanymi
wcześniej w Gazette, zajmie sie wydawany przez Radę Dyrektorów The Copernican.
Roczne sprawozdanie zawierać bedzie listę zebranych funduszy z
poprzedniego roku, a nie skumulowaną sumę z wszystkich lat.
Tę informację będzie można uzyskać z Biura Fundacji. Powyższe zmiany
zostały podyktowane redukcją profilu administracyjnego.
Biuro Fundacji zostało przeniesione w bardziej dostępne miejsce (główny parter budynku opieki dłgoterminowej, pokój 167A naprzeciw
windy).Serdecznie zapraszamy do odwiedzenia nas, jestesmy zainteresowani
wszelkimi sugestiami i komentarzami na temat przekazywanych funduszy i
ich przeznaczenia.
Biuro czynne: wtorek, czwartek i sobota w godz.10:00-15:00
Mamy nadzieje że nowy format naszego sprawozdania spodoba się
Państwu. Nasz telefon: 416-536-7122 wew. 252: email – [email protected].

Dear Friends,
The Copernicus Lodge Foundation was incorporated on February 11, 1983 as a charity. Our major
goal is to raise and maintain funds solely and exclusively
for the benefit and support of Copernicus Lodge.
Twenty-six years later, the Foundation continues
to evolve and thrive with the changing needs of Copernicus Lodge, new government regulations and the economic
downturn. The year 2009 has proven to be a significant
milestone in our history. The plunging economic environment and its impact on our donors and supporters has
caused us to re-evaluate our method of operation.
The Foundation reached the inevitable conclusion
that its overhead had to be slashed in keeping with reduced
revenues, and a new agreement was negotiated with Copernicus Lodge for provision of services and space. These changes were instituted successfully with minimal impact on the
day-to-day operations of the Foundation.
We recruited two directors to the Foundation, Andrew
Poprawa and Andrew Papierz, who come with a wealth of experience in the financial sector. We are also pleased that Helen
Hull, wife of the late Murphy Hull, our original founder and
builder, has agreed to join us as Honorary Director, thus propagating the legacy of Murphy Hull.
We have completed the update of our donor wall
and designated the Long Term Care facility as the ‘Helen
and Murphy Hull Wing’ in recognition of their generous
donations to Copernicus Lodge.
In 2009, the Foundation received $290,932.00 in donations in addition to $32,695 in interest and dividends. Since
virtually all of our assets were in cash in 2009, the Foundation’s capital was unaffected by the economic downturn.
After completing the restructuring in 2010, we plan to insti-
tute new fundraising initiatives to meet the continuing needs
of maintaining Copernicus Lodge as a world-class facility of
Thank you for supporting the Foundation.

Cash Gifts
Gifts of cash, whether paid by cheque,
money order, credit card or cash itself, are
the most common gifts to the Foundation. A cash gift may be a one-time gift or
a long-term pledge broken down in payments over a period of time. The Foundation issues a charitable donation tax
receipt for each donation.
Planned Giving
Planned Giving is a means of structuring your gift to maximize tax benefits
and achieve personal financial goals
while giving vital support to a cause
you believe in.
Each year, Copernicus Lodge is grateful
to receive bequests from the estates of
people who really cared for this community. By being included in a person’s
will or estate plan, an individual is considering us as a part of their family.
Tribute Gifts
Gifts of Real Estate
Occasionally, donors have presented
gifts of property/real estate to Copernicus Lodge. The donor of real estate
is entitled to a donation tax receipt for
the fair market value as determined by
a qualified appraisal.
Gifts of Security
Securities include stocks, bonds and
mutual fund units. The donor of the securities is entitled to a donation receipt
for fair market value. This can result in
significant tax savings to the donor. In
contrast, if the securities are sold by
the donor and the cash is then donated,
50% of the capital gain is taxable.
The Copernicus Lodge Foundation recommends that you consult with your
financial advisor before initiating any
type of donation. This will ensure that
you receive advice that is tailored to
your situation.
A gift in-kind is a donation of tangible property such as art, books or
equipment. Tangible property must
be appraised to determine fair market value. The donor will receive a
charitable donation tax receipt for
fair market value.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance can provide a
significant future gift to the Foundation
at a very modest, present cost to you.
You may also give the death benefit of an existing policy by naming
Copernicus Lodge Foundation as
the beneficiary. When you make the
Copernicus Lodge Foundation the
owner and beneficiary of a policy,
you receive a donation receipt for
every premium you subsequently
pay. At your death, the Foundation
will receive the proceeds.
Gifts In Memory
With the support of local funeral homes, the Copernicus Lodge Foundation’s memorial giving program allows family and
friends to commemorate the lives that have touched them.
Gifts In Honour
Showing people how much you care is a special part of life, yet finding just the right gift to express your feelings can sometimes be
difficult. Every year, people make commemorative gifts to the Foundation that celebrate a momentous occasion in a loved one’s,
friend’s or colleague’s life such as the birth of a child, a wedding, anniversary or special birthday.
Can I designate my donation to a specific area of Copernicus Lodge?
Yes. You may choose to keep your gift unrestricted, which means that Copernicus Lodge will be able to use it where the
need is greatest or you may choose to focus your donation on a specific area of interest to you.
When an in memory or in honour gift is made, is the amount of the donation disclosed?
No. This information is kept strictly confidential unless the donor instructs otherwise.
Will I receive a tax receipt for my donations?
All donations are tax creditable. Monthly donors will receive one receipt per year.
How can I update my donor information with you?
If you would like to update your name, address and phone number, you can contact the Foundation office via phone, fax or

Toronto, 7 February 2010
To: Tracy Kamino, Executive Director,
Board of Directors, Staff and Residents
of Copernicus Lodge,
On behalf of my family and myself I
wish to express my heartfelt thanks
for your condolences, support and the
beautiful flowers on the occasion of
passing away of my mother, Janina
Helena Mazur.
But it is more than that. It is your
thoughtfulness that touched our
hearts. Her passing away in her 108th
year is great loss to us, but I am comforted by the knowledge that in her
last years she was given excellent and
loving care, so personal and caring.
She was always treated with dignity.
Thank you with all my heart.
-Grace Kopec
