Giving the gift of cash

Learn about the benefits when giving the gift of cash.

Do you have a client who is interested in giving the gift of cash? A gift of cash to the QEII Foundation gives your client the satisfaction of seeing their gift at work immediately, providing life-altering care and treatments for Atlantic Canadians at the QEII.

✓  Cash

✓  Cheques or bank drafts

✓  Payments on Credit Card

✓  Pre-Authorized Contributions (PAC), usually paid monthly

Canada has one of the most generous charitable tax regimes in the world. The charitable tax credit means that your client will receive about half of their generosity back as a tax credit.

For example: Caleb arranges a gift of $25,000 in memory of his wife, June. He already has contributed $200 to charity this year.

Amount of contribution - $25,000
Tax credit (assuming 50%) - $12,500
Net after-tax cost of gift - $12,500
