Charitable Donation Tax Receipts now available when you donate to Nomads Rugby

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Nomads Rugby is pleased to announce that supporters can donate to the Club and receive Charitable Donation Tax Receipts for qualifying donations of $20 or greater.

Announcing the development Nomads President, Ross Pinkerton commented “As Around 50% of the Club’s operating Expenditure is covered by sponsorships and donations, it is important the Club provides its members and supporters with the options they need to optimize their giving”. 

To enable Nomads’ donors to receive charitable donation tax receipts, Nomads Rugby has partnered with Sport4Ontario, the Ontario branch of The National Sports Trust Fund, a registered Canadian Amateur Athletic Association (RCAAA). As a RCAAA the National Sport Trust Fund is able to issue an official tax receipt for all qualifying donations of $20 or greater.

To launch this initiative Nomads has established 2 separate funds: 

  1. The No Player Left Behind Fund, the purpose of which is to enable players who could not otherwise afford it to play Nomads rugby.
  2. The Rugby Operations Fund, the purpose of which is to contribute to the cost of rugby operations including programs, facilities, equipment, coaching and administration costs. 

We appreciate there are many supporters of Nomads Rugby who wish to support the club. Accordingly we have set stretch annual targets for these funds of $30,000 and $25,000 respectively. We look forward with anticipation to the Nomads’ community’s response.

Donors choose which fund to contribute to. If a donor wishes to contribute to both, two separate donations need to be made and two tax receipts will be issued.

Please note Sport4Ontario charges approximately 4% to use its service so the net donation received by the Club will be slightly less than the total donation.

Donations direct to the Club – Charitable Donation Tax Receipt not required.Members and supporters who do not require a Charitable Donation Tax Receipt, may donate directly to the Club by cheque (payable to “Toronto Nomads Rugby Club”), etransfer to treasurer@torontonomads.comor wire transfer. (email treasurer@torontonomads.comfor wire transfer instructions). Direct donations avoid the approx. 4% fee charged by Sport4Ontario. Direct to Club donors may specify their donation be applied to a preferred Fund, event or other purpose.

Canada–with massive help from Nomad Asia Hogan– Takes Gold at Pan Am Games

Monday, August 5th, 2019

Canada outperformed the rest of the Americas to win Gold at the 2019 Pan Am Games. In a one-sided final, Canada came out with the gold medal after their 24-5 winners victory over the USA.

The Canadian women and men were both Gold Medal winners at the 2015 Pan American Games on home soil in Toronto. Four years on the women successfully defended their Gold Medal, doing so in style. Nomads cheered as Asia Hogan scored a hat trick in the final game versus our southern neighbours.

Canada had a near perfect tournament as they were unbeaten and conceded just two tries in all of their matches.

Nomads at the Top: Women & Men Competing in Top Divisions

Friday, April 19th, 2019

After a successful first season back in the OWL, the Nomads ladies finished last year third in the west. They are returning to play in Ontario’s premier women’s competition with a new coach (imported from New Zealand, of course) and an insatiable hunger for Ws. They plan to run two teams, a high performance squad, as well as a development team.

The men faced a challenging 2018 season, but finished with a series of wins that proved they had what it takes to play with some of the province’s top teams. This year the Nomads men will compete in the Marshall League, the new premier division in Ontario. This will be the first time in many years that the Nomad men have competed at such a high level. In fact, the last time the Nomads won the Carlin Cup (the highest award in Ontario Men’s Rugby at that time) it was 1976! Back then, a try was worth four points, and stores were closed on Sundays.
