Gifts of Property

When considering giving to VON Canada, you might believe that your donation has to be made in cash. But gifts of property can allow you to make a bigger gift than you ever imagined possible.

A charitable tax receipt will be provided for the fair market value at the time of the transfer of property. VON Canada will sell the property and use the proceeds for crucial programs and services.

You can donate many types of property to help VON Canada give hope and care for people in need:

  • Real estate: Such as a cottage, a piece of land, or a commercial building
  • Personal property: Including jewellery or antiques
  • Cultural property: Such as a painting or sculpture
  • Capital property: Such as securities, bonds, RRSPs, RRIFs or mutual funds

If you donate personal or cultural property, we will ask you to have your donation independently assessed, and then we will issue you a tax receipt based on that value.

If you directly donate capital property, you will be exempt from paying any capital gains tax.

We encourage you to seek independent advice when executing gifts of securities, property, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, wills, trusts, contracts and other legal agreements.
