Join the Circle of Love: When you join our monthly giving club, Circle of Love, you commit to giving a little bit each month to help Our Place provide sustainable services. Members of the Circle of Love receive our newsletter three times per year to update you on the impact of your donations. Unless otherwise requested, you do not receive any other mailings and receive only one consolodated receipt every Jan-Feb. this save us printing and administration costs and helps you plan your donations.

Gifts of Shares and Securities: A gift of publicly-traded securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, can be an attractive alternative to making a cash donation due to the generous tax incentives in Canada. This applies to publicly-listed securities that have increased in value since you purchased them. However, to benefit from this, the actual securities must be donated vs. cashing them in first. Please note gifts of securities must be received into our brokerage account prior to December 31st to generate a tax receipt for that year. Please follow the steps outlined on the form (link below). Download our Gift of Securities Donation Form (PDF). Then, please let us know about your gift by contacting Janice Kalin at janicek@ourplacesociety.com or at 250-940-5066.
