Gifts of any amount are welcome and gratefully received. A charitable gift receipt will be provided for all qualifying gifts over $20.
Gifts can be given in the following ways:
Monthly giving – You may choose to make a monthly gift. Donating monthly allows you to spread out your commitment, making it manageable to make a meaningful gift, while providing a regular stream of donation income to the College. A monthly giving plan can be setup online or by completing a donation form (link to a downloadable pdf) designating the area you wish to support and determining the monthly contribution that suits your financial plan.
One time gift – You can make a one-time gift of any denomination to the YC Fund or to a funding priority of your choice. Donations may be made online, by mailing your donation or we would be pleased to assist you with your gift in person.
Pledge – You may prefer to make a series of gifts over a period of months or years, thus spreading your tax benefits accordingly. Contact us and we can set up a payment plan that will help you achieve your giving goals.
Gift of securities – By directly donating securities, including shares, bonds, mutual funds and stock options (rather than selling the securities first, then donating the proceeds), you can eliminate the associated capital gains and receive a donation receipt for the fair market value as of the gift date. We suggest you consult with your professional advisor before initiating a gift of publicly traded securities.
Gift in-kind – A gift in-kind is a non-cash gift that could be anything from artwork and equipment to real estate. Initial arrangements for gifts in-kind are made at the department level, to ensure the donation is acceptable and will benefit learning. Eligible gifts in-kind receive the same kinds of tax benefits and recognition as other gifts to the College. A gift in-kind must be assessed before a charitable receipt can be issued for current fair market value.
In honour/In memoriam – We would be pleased to discuss with you an appropriate and meaningful way to honour or remember a loved one.
Payroll deductions – Yukon College employees can sign up for regular payroll deductions, spreading out your commitment while still receiving annual tax benefits and making a meaningful gift.
Corporate matching gifts – Many companies support employee giving by offering a “matching gift” program. This means the company will donate funds equal to your contribution, effectively doubling the gift. Check with your employer to see if they offer a charitable gift matching program
Thank you for your generosity! Should you have any questions about any of the gift avenues outlined above please contact us.
We encourage all donors to speak to your financial or legal advisor about the tax benefits, thresholds and appropriateness of these choices for you.
