Monthly giving allows you to continue your support easily and make a difference year-round. Here are a few of the many benefits of giving monthly:
Convenience: you only need to sign up once and can spread your donations out over the year, receiving one consolidated tax receipt in January;
Flexibility: you are able to change or cancel your payments at any time;
Stable Funding: Your monthly gifts also provide us with stable funding, allowing us to plan projects and campaigns with the comfort of knowing that we have a reliable flow of donations. Even donations of $10 - $20 a month add up and help make a significant impact.
Be sure to check the "Monthly" for donation frequency.

Give the Gift of Stocks
As we approach the holiday season, it’s natural to think about helping those less fortunate. With the recent gains in the stock market, we have an opportunity to reduce your tax bill and make a meaningful donation.
By donating shares “in-kind” to your charity, you will not only get a donation receipt for the full value of the shares, but you also won’t have to pay any capital gains tax on the gain.
For example, if you donate a stock worth $5000 that has a $3000 gain, you will receive a donation receipt for $5000, which in BC will reduce your tax bill by about $2,200. Additionally, you do not have to pay capital gains tax on the $3000 gain, so you will further reduce your tax bill by perhaps $600. So the charity will receive $5,000 and it will cost you only about $2,200 after your tax savings. It’s best to donate shares with the largest gains to maximize the benefit.
