MONTHLY GIVING

Monthly donors are a special group of loyal and committed supporters who invest in the well-being of patients through automatic pre-authorized monthly contributions from their chequing account, Visa or MasterCard.

Your monthly gifts reduce costs for postage, paper and printing. This means that more of your dollars go directly to meeting the needs of patients—right here in the North.

By spreading your donations over the course of the year, monthly giving can also amount to a significant total contribution.

MEMORIAL DONATIONS

A memorial donation is a thoughtful way to remember someone's life and achievements. We will send a card to the next of kin acknowledging your thoughtful contribution in memory of their loved one without reference to the size of your gift. If you wish, we can include a personal message. As the donor, you will receive a tax-receipt for the full amount of the contribution.

IN HONOUR DONATIONS

In honour donations are a wonderful and unique way to honour or thank someone in your life. They can offer a meaningful alternative to a special occasion gift. They can be made to celebrate, pay tribute to, or remember all of life’s special events and milestones:

  • SIMPLY SAYING “THANK YOU” TO A CAREGIVER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE

  • THE BIRTH OF A CHILD

  • BIRTHDAYS

  • WEDDINGS AND ANNIVERSARIES

  • GRADUATIONS AND RETIREMENTS

  • MOTHER’S DAY AND FATHER’S DAY

  • PROMOTIONS

  • GET WELL SOON, GOOD LUCK, BEST WISHES, CONGRATULATIONS

We will send a card informing the person you are honouring of your contribution without reference to the size of your gift. If you wish to include a personal message, just let us know.  As the donor, you will receive a tax-receipt for the full amount of your contribution. We would be honoured to be a part of your special occasion, for more details and options, contact the Health Sciences North Foundation office.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES

Donating publicly traded stock and securities directly to Health Sciences North Foundation is a tax-smart way to support our mission. You will receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and you will not have to pay capital gains tax. Conversely, if you were to cash in the securities yourself with a view of donating the proceeds, 50% of the gain would be taxable.

In other words, it is more advantageous for you to transfer stock directly to Health Sciences North Foundation than to cash it and then make a donation. 

Making a gift of securities is easy. Simply download the Securities Transfer Form below and follow the instructions.

PLANNED GIVING

Once you have made a provision for your family and loved ones after you are gone, you may consider making a planned gift to Health Sciences North Foundation.

Planned giving is simply, "planning to give." It is the process of helping you maximize legacies to your beneficiaries and your favourite charities, minimize tax, and improve your overall financial plans and security.

When making a Planned Gift to Health Sciences North Foundation you are contributing to the care of future generations of those living in the North.

Types of Planned Giving:

Bequests
Charitable Gift Annuities
Chariable Remainder Trusts
Life Insurance
RRSPs or RRIFs 


ENDOWMENTS

Health Sciences North Foundation relies on steady financial support to carry out its mission of ensuring excellence in patient care, research and the education of the doctors of tomorrow.

One of the best way to do this is through a permanent endowment. An endowment is a fund set aside and invested, to perpetually generate funds for the purpose of your choice. The capital of an endowment is always left intact, and only the earnings are spent to support research, an equipment fund or another recurring endeavour.

The minimum amount required to establish an endowment at Health Sciences North Foundation is $10,000, and $25,000 for a named fund. However, a gift of any amount can be directed to an existing endowment fund.
