How to Give
Donations support our overall mission and activities; in many cases they can also be directed by the donor to a specific purpose. In either case we keep close track of donations and ensure they are put to use where the benefit to people and community is the greatest.
Gifts other than cash are welcome. Donations of goods, services or property can make a big difference, and these donations may also qualify for charitable tax receipts.
A Lasting Legacy
Legacy gifts provide long-term support that will ensure we are able to continue our work of strengthening people, families and our community not only for today, but also tomorrow. Legacy gifts are expressions of your values and hopes for the future. There are many ways to leave a legacy gift:
A bequest in your will. This may be a specific gift such as cash, securities, RRSPs, or the residual of the estate after loved ones are provided for
Life insurance policy. A new or existing policy naming SSICS as the beneficiary
Gifts of securities. Current tax rules provide a great advantage to donating publicly listed securities
An endowment fund. Funds may be directed to our general endowment fund or one named in honour of you, your family or loved ones
We would be pleased to discuss other donation options. If you are planning to make a legacy gift to SSICS please contact us to ensure your gift will fulfill your intentions and provide you with optimum tax benefits.
