To give to the Grace Dart Foundation is to bring about a change in the world, to make it a better place! Our Foundation supports an Institution that has been giving care and love for over 150 years to those in our community who need it most. Your contribution changes lives, touches hearts and brings peace. It’s about improving people’s lives. Here are various ways you can donate:
All donations are of great importance to us, no matter the amount.
A monthly donation: a simple and efficient way to make your generosity go the extra mile. A few dollars a month will support our programs year round. Early January, you will receive an income tax receipt for the total amount given prior in the year.
In Memory donation: Honour the memory of a family member, a friend or a colleague by making a donation. We will notify the person of your gesture.
In Honour donation: It is a beautiful way to show your appreciation to a doctor, a nurse, a volunteer. You may also pay tribute to a person you love by making a donation in their honour, for their birthday, anniversary, retirement, etc. We will notify the person of your gesture.
Matching gifts: you can double the impact of your gift. Find out if your employer offers a Matching gift program.
Gift in securities:
This tax smart option allows you to make a gift of appreciated securities (shares, bonds, etc.) without being taxed on your capital gains while being receipted for the full amount of your donation. To take advantage from this preferential tax treatment, securities must be transferred directly to the Grace Dart Foundation. Please get in touch with Ms Nathalie Morissette at 514-255-2834, ext. 3350.
Planned giving provides you with the opportunity to make a significant gift that will materialize in the future and offers you additional tax saving while maximizing your support to the Grace Dart Foundation.
