Imagine Canada releases Guide to Giving 
Answers questions many donors have about giving to charity.

Imagine Canada released its first Guide to Giving to answer some of the questions Canadians may have when deciding where to allocate their charitable gifts.

“Canadians need access to good information about Canada’s charities, especially at this time of the year when our thoughts turn to collective goodwill and when several charities are in the midst of holiday giving campaigns. It is our hope that this Guide to Giving will help Canadians make their donation decisions,” says Marcel Lauzière, President & CEO of Imagine Canada.

The Guide to Giving is a free four page guide produced by Imagine Canada’s Ethical Code Program. The 350 plus charities that belong to the Ethical Code are committed to transparency and ethical fundraising. The Guide to Giving addresses some of the most common questions put forward by Canadian donors. 

The Guide to Giving may be accessed online as a downloadable PDF by visiting the Imagine Canada website at http://www.imaginecanada.ca/guide-to-giving.

 

Information about Capital Gains:

With the elimination of capital gains on donations of publically traded securities, gifts of securities are now the most tax efficient way to make a charitable donation ... and a great way for donors to make a greater impact with their gift. 

It’s easy – both for donors and for charities.  Once a donor has completed the online process and the shares have been sold, the donor receives their tax receipt and Family Centre receives the funds.  It’s just that simple.  To find out more about how it works, visit http://www.canadahelps.org/Help/Help.aspx?id=11.

 

Family Centre is a registered non-profit organization and gratefully accepts donations. Registered charity number 11915 7394 RR0001.
