Other ways to give
Donate securities and avoid the capital gains tax
Here’s a tax-smart tip! You can make a gift of securities to New Circles. Donate publicly traded securities, bonds, mutual funds and other investments without having to pay capital gains tax. You will receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and you will not be subject to any capital gains tax on the donated stock.

In Memoriam and Tribute Gifts
A gift to honour the memory of a loved one can be special tribute to their lives.
You may also consider making a special gift to celebrate a milestone event with your family, friends or colleagues. Birthdays, anniversaries and retirement are wonderful opportunities to honour the moment with a gift that can change someone’s life.
When you include New Circles in your will, you are leaving a legacy gift to help support programs for future generations. Bequests can take the form of a lump-sum gift, a percentage of your estate or specific property. You can also make New Circles the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your attorney or financial advisor can help you consider the tax benefits of various options.
40% of clients at New Circles are under the age of 18. Thorncliffe Park, one of four focus neighbourhoods served by New Circles, has a child poverty rate above 50%.
