We are honoured to receive many gifts each year made in memory of those who have passed. Whether these gifts are made in honour of infants, or in tribute to volunteers associated with our organization, each gift is valued tremendously.
Please contact us for any assistance you may require to establish gifts in memory of a loved one. Our online giving portal provided through CanadaHelps provides the opportunity to establish online Fundraising Pages (click here) where you can set up a personalized appeal to share with friends and family online, allowing for you to share a picture of your loved one and some text for easy online distribution.
Special Event Proceeds
Whether through special event fundraisers at schools, runs, walks or rides, we are pleased to provide support to efforts that aim to raise funds and build awareness through community and family activities. Simply contact our office to discuss your event idea (or to consider some ideas with us), and we will provide you with support to help make your efforts successful.
These are significant contributions to support priorities identified jointly with a supporter. Such gifts could result in the creation of named funds, equipment purchases, named research initiatives and other special priorities.
Similar to major gifts, these significant contributions can support a variety of initiatives. Such gifts are invested in perpetuity, and can be named as a lasting tribute to a friend or loved one.
Planned gifts generally refer to intended contributions made within a donor's will. There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift to Baby's Breath, and we are pleased to provide guidance upon request.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities (stock / bonds) may be made in any amount, and in support of any of the activities of Baby's Breath. Donating publicly traded securities is a tax-smart way to support Baby's Breath. Not only will you receive a tax receipt for the full fair market value of the donated securities, but you will also be exempt from any tax on the shares' capital gains. There are tax advantages to donating securities regardless of the current market conditions.
We undertake a variety of activities across Canada, and have a need to coordinate many more. We are often in need of corporate sponsors to enable special events to happen, and welcome any such offers of support. We also require sponsorships to enable our organization and medical professionals to participate in conferences and workshops they would otherwise not have the resources to participate in.
