MAJOR GIVING

GIFTS THAT TRANSFORM CARE

When donors choose to make a major gift, they are catalysts for transformation in dementia care and long-term care, not only within our community but also far beyond. Their support for McCormick Care Group elevates our leadership position in this critical field.

 

Gifts exceeding $25,000 wield profound influence, fueling initiatives like McCormick Mobile—a pioneering program delivering interdisciplinary care to those with dementia and their caregivers in the comfort of their homes.

SHARES & GIFTS IN KIND

DONATE SHARES

Donors contributing specific publicly traded securities "in kind" to Canadian private foundations or registered public charities, such as the McCormick Care Foundation, enjoy exemption from capital gains tax on any appreciation in the fair market value of the donation.

 

Eligible securities encompass a range of assets including stocks, bonds, trust units, exchange-traded funds, segregated funds, and mutual fund units. To qualify, the donation must be made "in kind," meaning the securities are donated in their current form without being sold. Additionally, the shares must be publicly traded on Canadian or other major international exchanges (private company holdings are currently ineligible).
