You may, or may not, know that you are able to direct all, or a portion of your United Way contribution to a charity of your choice. If you are planning on making a donation to United Way, I would ask you to please consider directing your donation to the Creative Problem Solving Society(CPSS) , the registered charity which is responsible for running Odyssey of the Mind in British Columbia. Our registration number is 86876 6171 RR0001.
In directing your donation to CPSS, you can be assured that ALL of your donation will be spend on providing programs and services that promote problem solving activities for youth in BC. CPSS is a 100 % volunteer society with no paid staff. If you so desire, you can let us know exactly how you would like your money to be spent , otherwise, it will go to support one of our ongoing or new programs (e.g. right now, we are trying to establish a post secondary scholarship for students who have participated in Odyssey or you could ask that your donation be spent to help offset costs for teams travelling to World Finals; to pay membership fees for needy schools, etc.).
Thanks for giving this matter your consideration!
Cheryl Atwater, President
Creative Problem Solving Society
