Donate a Car Canada
The Foundation has partnered with Donate a Car Canada as an alternate way of making a donation.
Donate a Car Canada accepts vehicles for the Foundation. They provide free towing in many areas of Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your RV, boat, motorcycle, car or truck to the Foundation through Donate a Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for the Foundation to benefit. After your Vehicle Donation is complete, the Foundation will send you a tax receipt within 45 days.
To donate a vehicle to the Foundation, simply follow this link Donate a Car Canada.
Ways to Give
There are many ways to make donations to the Foundation. Here are some of them.
Unrestricted donations allow the Board of Directors of the Foundation to direct proceeds to the most immediate and important programs.
Directed donations allow donors to donate directly to projects which interest them with the assurance that proceeds will only be applied to the directed project.
Giving by way of a bequest allows donors to have full use of their money throughout their lifetime, but can dedicate a portion of it to support a cause, in which they strongly believe, after they are gone. Bequests can be Unrestricted or Directed.
This is one of the easiest ways to make a planned gift and receive a current tax deduction.
Tax rules now allow you to donate appreciated shares (and other publicly listed securities) for a full tax receipt and at the same time minimize your taxable capital gains.
Some people wish to benefit a charity through their will, but feel they must provide for others first. A charitable remainder trust can help achieve both these objectives.
Many companies encourage their employees to give to charities through a Matching Gift Program. Some programs include matching donations made by current or retired employees, while others extend their programs to include matching donations made by spouses or widow(er)s. If you are a current or retired employee, employee’s spouse, or a director or board member, simply contact the Human Resources Department and ask if they have a Matching Gifts program in place. It is a simple procedure that can at least double the donation amount – at no extra cost to you.
Honour deceased family and friends by making a gift in their name. Donations may be directed to a project in which they were particularly interested.
