Each year we receive many requests for financial assistance for worthy programs and projects. We’re committed to the challenge of raising sufficient funds, so that every worthwhile application may receive a positive response to its request for support.

Gifts of marketable securities allow donors to deduct the full fair market value as a charitable contribution, thus avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Eligible securities include shares, bills, futures and units in mutual funds that are traded on the Canadian exchange. Once they have been transferred, they are sold and the donor will receive tax benefits for the stock value at the time of the transaction.
In Honour Donations highlight a special moment or event in the life of a person such as a birth, a promotion, a wedding or a birthday. This is an excellent way to show appreciation for someone while supporting an important cause. If you provide a valid postal or email address, the Foundation will send a card to the person honoured and mention the donation made in his or her honour. An official receipt for income tax purposes will be issued to the donor.
In Memoriam Donations honour the memory of a loved one, friend, or co-worker. Your donation will support the vision of the Foundation. You will receive a tax receipt and if you provide a postal or email address, a card will be sent to the family notifying them of your donation.
