Canada Revenue Agency has rules and guidelines which apply, but gifts such as these may be an effective way to get involved with CFIC. Scrap car to get rid of? Maybe you have a time-share property you no longer use? Click here for other gifts in kind ideas.
Interest Free Loan: Did you know you can make an interest-free loan to a charity? When charities have major programs to operate, sometimes it is useful to the charity to receive an interest free loan from donors. CFI Canada will be searching for a new permanent home – an interest free loan from donors can help make this happen and provide Canada’s leading community for science and secularism with an ideal capital campaign base!
Employee Giving: Don’t forget the local United Way campaign or your company’s employee giving programme. All you need to do is advise of CFIC’s charitable number 83364 2614 RR0001 and your payroll gift can be forwarded to CFIC. More information here.
S.H.A.R.E.: In response to the outpouring of concern expressed by members and volunteers of CFI Canada over the earthquake in Nepal (May 2015) and flooding in Bangladesh (June-August 2015), we have launched the Skeptics and Humanists Aid and Relief Effort (SHARE). The SHARE fund was initially developed by CFI (US) as a service for their donors who wished to give to disaster relief in a way that is consistent with their ethics and standards; in Canada, the SHARE model is a service to CFIC members and donors who wish to give to disaster recovery initiatives through secular charities. CFIC will provide a tax receipt to donors and pass 100% of donations to a secular disaster recovery charity partner. Donor names and details will not be shared with other organizations (unless explicitly requested by the donor). Giving to assist during disasters should respect your ethics and reach the vulnerable.
