How to Make a Donation
How Can I Make A Contribution To The Foundation?
You can make a donation to the Foundation, or to any Fund within it, at any time. You can simply contact the Foundation by phone or email, or choose our online donation option via PayPal.
If you wish to include the Foundation in your planned giving, please contact us to set up a meeting. The Foundation will advise you on the process for making donations and for receiving any tax receipts. They will also help you decide the type of fund you set up. We are happy to meet with you and your professional advisor together as well.
How Donations Work
A donation can be made to the Foundation as a present gift (those occurring during an individual’s lifetime) and as a deferred gift (those occurring upon the death of an individual.) Present gifts can assist the Foundation immediately and help the donor through tax credits and savings on capital gains. Deferred gifts will help the Foundation at a future date, while also serving to benefit the donor’s estate.
Funds may be invested as an endowment fund to generate income, in perpetuity, for charitable causes. They may also be spent promptly as per the donor’s wishes. All contributions to the Foundation are managed responsibly by a group of community leaders who are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the quality of life in our region.
