Interested in giving more? Way to go...
Cash – A gift of cash is one of the most convenient ways to make a charitable donation.
Pledges – Contributions may be made as a single gift, or be paid over a period of time, for example on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.
Securities – A gift of appreciated securities offers a two-fold tax benefit. You may avoid paying any tax on the increased value of the asset from the time of purchase and receive a tax deduction for full market value at the time of the gift.
Matching Gifts – Did you know that your company may have a Matching Gift Program? This means any donation you make to the Society will be matched by your company. Check it out. Ask your company if they have a Matching Gift Program which may multiply the value of gifts from their employees, officers, retirees, and spouses.
Real Estate – A gift of real estate may help you avoid the tax on appreciated property and realize a charitable deduction for the full market value.
Gifts of Kind – Donations of equipment and other tangible property can be of great value to the Society. The Society will issue a tax receipt based on the fair market value of the items.
Planned Gifts – Bequests: The Society can be helped by bequests through the wills of its members and friends. Bequests to the Society may substantially reduce your estate taxes. Bequests can be specific dollar amounts or portions of an estate.
Memorials/Tributes and Naming Opportunities – You may make a gift to the Society in memory of a deceased loved one or to pay tribute to someone on a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary. Specific naming opportunities for projects or permanent research funds are also available to recognize a special gift from a member or family, corporation, foundation, or other donor.
More Ways to Donate
United Way – You can designate your pledge to the Psoriasis Society of Canada. During their campaign specify that you want your donations pledge to the Psoriasis Society of Canada. They will send the payment to the Society. This can be done through your payroll deduction.
