End of Year giving made easy
December 22, 2011 in the Blog by Dani Mailing
Wow! Can you believe its almost 2012??
If you are worried that you are too late to make a donation for 2011, don’t be!
Online 24 hours a day
You can donate securely online and have a tax receipt in your inbox in a matter of minutes. The donation form takes less than five minutes to complete and you can rest assured that your valued dollars will be put to good use making big change in Canada in 2012.
It’s also not too late to donate stocks or securities.
There are significant tax advantages in donating your shares in stocks or options directly rather than selling the shares and donating the proceeds. A charitable donation of publicly traded securities such as stocks, mutual funds, bonds or futures results in a tax receipt for 100% of the value of the gift on the day of the transfer. By providing a larger potential deduction than an equivalent gift of cash, this option allows you to maximize your charitable giving. Your donation must be a transfer of the stock or security itself, not the cash proceeds of a sale of the security.
Please e-mail us at email@example.com with your contact details in order to obtain the required details to make a transfer from an investment account.

You can still post us a cheque, as long as it is postmarked on or before December 31st, we can still issue you a 2011 tax receipt. Please make cheques payable to Small Change Fund and post to:

Over the phone
Unfortunately our offices will be closed from December 23rd to January 3rd, so we will be unable to process donations over the phone. We hope you understand, and we invite you to choose one of the options above as an alternative.
