By giving today, you are providing a gift that makes a difference now. There are various ways of giving that offer unique or increased tax benefits. You may also find that more than one type of gift combination will suit your particular financial situation.
Send a Cheque
Give by mailing a cheque written to Shalem Mental Health Foundation and send to 875 Main Street East, Hamilton, ON, L8M 1M2.
By giving regularly, you are providing constant support to those in need. You may choose to give regularly through monthly, quarterly or annual contributions. You simply need to complete a commitment form.
Gifts of Securities
Donating stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other securities is a tax-smart way to support Shalem while enhancing your gift. Donating securities directly to charity eliminates the payment of capital gains tax. By making such a gift you will receive the benefit of a tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock and not pay tax on any of the capital gain. When making such a donation, it is best to give it directly to a charity rather than selling it first and giving the cash proceeds. A tax savings example of a gift of $25,000 is illustrated below:
