You may choose to support a favourite cause, or you may ask The Foundation to distribute the income from your invested funds. Your gift will be pooled with other gifts that will ensure maximum potential earnings at a minimal administrative expense. It’s a great way to create a lasting legacy.

Gifts and donations to The Foundation may qualify as gifts to a registered charity for income tax purposes, and The Foundation will issue the required receipt.

Your gift to The Foundation is an expression of gratitude to your community and of your desire to benefit future generations. Your contribution can be made in several ways:
