Online Donations

Thank you for your thoughtful and generous donation to Magellan Community Foundation. Every gift does make a difference.

Magellan Community Foundation will provide tax receipts for donations of $20 or more. If you choose to make your donation online you will automatically receive your tax receipt. You may also choose to make your gift by telephone, fax or by mail and we welcome you to reach out to our offices for guidance.

Donate in Memory

You may choose to honour the memory of a loved one by making a donation to Magellan Community Foundation. A gift in memory is a meaningful way to remember someone important to you.  A tax receipt will be issued to the donor and they will also receive a special card and acknowledgement letter.

Donate in Honour

When friends or loved ones celebrate an important occasion, such as an anniversary or birthday, choose to honour them through a donation to Magellan Community Foundation. We will supply customized donation cards for your event, issue a tax receipt to each donor and provide letters of acknowledgement to the honouree(s).

Corporate Partnerships

Research has demonstrated that there is a solid business case for engaging in corporate social responsibility. Those who take their place among the corporate leaders in our community can expect to enhance their competitive advantage and create win-win relationships with stakeholders, as well as building legitimacy as a business through an enhanced reputation.

Gifts of Securities

When you make a gift of securities to Magellan Community Foundation your impact is immediate. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that you’d have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. You’ll also receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation.

Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning.   Giving is simple. Consult your financial advisor to decide which investments make the most financial and philanthropic impact. Then ask your broker to transfer your securities to the Magellan Community Foundation by completing the appropriate transfer form. And finally, get in touch and let us know you have made your gift so that we can show our appreciation.

Donate Goods or Services

Donations of money are transformative but so are donations of goods and services that support fundraising events and campaigns.  From catering, to media asset transfers, to pet treats, and everything in between, your gift of goods or services enhances our participants’ experience and contributes more funds towards building the Magellan Centre.

These gifts may be used to encourage further fundraising, help share our message with a new audience and invite others to help.
