There is still no cure or effective control for cystic fibrosis, and all across Canada, parents of children with CF are hoping that we will find a cure in time to save their child. Every dollar you give brings us closer to a cure. That’s why there’s never been a more important time to give.
And because every gift counts, regardless of its size or purpose, there are many ways in which you can help. Should you have any questions about the following ways of giving or if you would like assistance planning your contribution, please contact Annie Markvoort, Vancouver Chapter Administrative Assistant, at 604-436-1158 ext. 101.
Many donors choose to make gifts of cash. Traditionally, such gifts are made by cheque. Giving by credit card on our secured website is an increasingly popular option.
By spreading payments over a period of time—typically not more than five years—pledges allow donors to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace.
Gifts of Securities
Donors who choose to give appreciated securities can receive a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the securities and avoid capital gains tax. Publicly traded securities held in a brokerage account may be transferred electronically to the Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
We can help you select from a wide variety of taxwise giving strategies. Please contact us if you wish to receive a complimentary book entitled For My Family & Charity not the Tax Collector by Randall Reynolds, President, FAB Financial Advisors Brokerage Group.
Many companies match the charitable gifts of their employees. To find out if your company offers a matching-gift program, please contact your human resources department.
