The APPEC Board is very pleased to report that on Dec. 20, 2016 the Council of Prince Edward County passed a motion deeming the establishment of a fund to pay the costs of the combined efforts of APPEC and the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists (PECFN) to protect the south shore of the County as a project of community interest.
As such, the County of Prince Edward will now issue Official Income Tax Receipts for any new donations made to this separate fund, established by the County, for the legal costs and disbursements involved in our legal challenges against the proposed industrial wind energy projects along the south shore.
APPEC and PECFN have jointly entered into an agreement with the County for the handling of this fund. This separate fund will be known as the “County of Prince Edward – Legal Appeal Fund”. More about the agreement that APPEC and PECFN has entered into with the County can be found here.
If you would like to make a donation eligible for an official income tax receipt for 2016 there is still time to do so. Cheques should be made out as follows:
- PAYEE – made out to the “County of Prince Edward – Legal Appeal Fund”
- DATE – dated on or after today’s date (Dec 22, 2016) and before January 1, 2017
- NAME AND ADDRESS – the name and address on the cheque should be the name and address that you wish to appear on the official income tax receipt that will be issued to you. If your cheque has incomplete information on it (for example your name is printed on the cheque but there is no address) please provide this missing information in a brief note accompanying your cheque.
- SUBMISSION – Cheques need to be received by the County before year-end. They can be mailed to our mailing address and we will get them in if received in time. Our mailing address is:
P.O. Box 173
*or email us at email@example.com to arrange drop-off or pick up.
Please note that any donations to the County of Prince Edward – Legal Appeal Fund will only go towards paying the costs in our legal battle and cannot be passed directly to APPEC or PECFN, nor can any unused donations be returned.
The legal fight to stop the destruction of the south shore of the County comes with a high price tag. With your full participation and commitment we will be successful.
