The success and strength of our initiatives are dependent on your help. There are many ways to make a gift. For more information about any of the options listed below, please contact us at 613-749-9950 ext. 233 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
Gifts of Cash
Cash donations of $10 or above will be given a tax-deductible receipt. These can be made by cheque, credit card or pre-authorized payments through your bank account. You have the option of donating by phone, mail, fax or online. You can also make a gift in honour of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion.
Gifts of Securities
Publicly traded securities (eg. shares, bonds, mutual funds) can be donated as an alternative to cash. These gifts are exempt from any capital gains tax with the tax receipt reflecting the full market value of the gift on the day of transfer.
Gifts in Kind
Valuable non-cash gifts (eg. artwork) are gladly accepted. The gift must be appraised in order for a donation receipt to be issued for the gift's fair market value. We also accept in-kind gifts of supplies and materials for our many builds and special events.
You will create a legacy when you remember Habitat GO in your will or through your life insurance provider. By joining Habitat GO's "Legacy Builders," you will know that you are helping create an enduring legacy of hope while also enjoying possible tax benefits during your lifetime by choosing to leave a bequest.
