What are your philanthropic goals?

You might already be giving, and want it to be thoughtfully organized. Perhaps you have thought about how your philanthropy could be more strategic, but need help. Maybe you have thought about setting up your own charitable foundation to involve your family in giving, but don’t want the administrative hassle. Or maybe you want to leave part of your estate to charity, but don’t know where to turn. Innisfil Community Foundation can be your partner for all of this.

Community Fund

Your donation to our Community Fund will help support the most urgent needs of our community. Currently these funds are being put into action to support our community’s response and recovery through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gifting Publicly-Traded Securities

A donation of securities or mutual funds is the most efficient way to give charitably. Since capital gains taxes don’t apply, Innisfil Community Foundation receives the full fair market value when the security is sold, and you get a tax receipt which reflects your larger contribution. This allows you to give more and get more. Click here for a summary of the benefits of donating securities directly, rather than selling them and donating the profits.

Field of Interest Fund

You identify the issues you care about (ex. children and youth, relief of poverty, education, etc.).  and we make impactful, informed grants on your behalf.

Donor Advised Fund

We invest your fund and you direct annual grants to registered Canadian charities of your choice. This is a hassle-free alternative to creating your own family trust or private foundation.

Designated Fund

You select the charities you want to support and we designate your grants to those charities each year.

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Making a charitable gift through your estate is a way to support the causes that are important to you long into the future. It can also result in significant tax savings for your heirs. Click here for sample will bequest wording.

Gifts of Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance is a creative way for you to build long-term financial strength in the community without diminishing your own. Even a relatively small commitment can provide significant benefits for charities in Innisfil. Talk to your financial advisor or insurance provider to determine what makes the best financial impact.
