If donating through the United Way, you will need to enter our registered charity number: 741786677 RC0001 in the ‘direct your donation’ area on your form.

CORPORATE DONATIONS

Being involved in a corporate business/citizen can positively impact the quality of life in our communities. This reinforces (and demonstrates) your investment in the health and well-being of the vulnerable individuals and their families closest to you. 

STOCK DONATIONS

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual fund units is the most tax-effective way to make an outstanding gift during your lifetime. Donors receive a tax credit for their gift and you also pay no capital gains tax. Stock donations represent a win-win situation for everyone involved.

Donating cash or appreciated securities, you will receive a tax receipt which will create a tax credit. Extra tax incentive available for gifts of appreciated publicly listed securities makes stocks the least expensive way to give. Donors receive a tax credit for their gift but you also pay no capital gains tax.
