Stocks and Securities

Current tax rules provide a great advantage to donating publicly listed securities or mutual fund units including eliminating capital gains tax while also receiving a full market value tax receipt for your gift. This type of donation allows you to maximize your giving to a charity like Island Community Services rather than selling securities and donating proceeds.  for more information on donating securities, please contact us through emailing Rob Grant, Executive Director

or call (250) 537-9971 ext. 222

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;

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.
