Leadership Giving

Help create a better future for all youth

The youth we serve have experienced challenging and traumatic life circumstances. Every single one of them deserves the chance for a better future.

Your help makes a big difference in the kinds of services we can provide. Leadership gifts have a large and immediate impact on programs, which can transform the lives of youth. Every donation goes toward helping youth restore their safety, stability and potential.

Ways to give

Gifts of securities

Starting Jan 1, 2024 there may be changes to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) system that may affect some donations.

Proposed changes to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) system may affect the tax benefits for individuals with a higher annual income.  In 2024, if you have a taxable income greater that $173,000 and have tax preferred income or deductions (capital gains, stock options, Canadian dividend income or net capital losses and non-capital losses), then you may owe AMT. To learn more about AMT talk with your tax professional.

Your gift can be in the form of shares, bonds or mutual funds.

The elimination of the capital gains tax on a gift of securities may create a considerable tax advantage to you, depending on your financial situation.
