Don settled down to read: “WALLA WALLA UNIVERSITY,” read the caller ID as Don, a re- tired engineer, lifted the receiver. “Hello, Walla Walla University,” Don grinned, thinking he was being funny. “Hello, Mr. Jones,” replied a youthful voice, “we’re making our annual Phonathon call.” Don donated every year to his American alma mater, but he was feeling frisky today. “I can’t give to you,” Don smirked, “Official Canadian charitable receipts may be issued by universities outside Canada with a student body that ordinarily includes students from Canada, provided these universities have registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and are listed in Schedule VIII of the Income Tax Regulations.” 1 Don followed the suggestion in the book to Google “Prescribed Universities Outside Canada” and found ample information. He was happy to find Walla Walla University registered with the CRA. This time he would be more proactive in having his American university donation recognized in Canada. n 1 Alain Levesque, George’s Tree: The Story of a Well-Planned Gift, Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada edition, 2012, p. 110.
