The Fredericton Community Foundation accepts gifts of all sizes. We offer a customized approach to suit your charitable interests.
Whether you wish to give a one-time gift, regardless the size, or you want to establish a fund, we will turn your donation into a lasting gift to the community. The Fredericton Community Foundation’s endowment model gives your gift a legacy.
We offer a variety of giving options to personalize your gift while creating a life-long legacy in your name or the name of a loved one. We will work with you, your family and your financial planner to design a fund that meets your needs.
Giving is made easy with giving options that include cash, life insurance, publicly traded securities and bequests. Learn more about these giving options below. Other giving options may be available. All gifts will be receipted for tax purposes.
For more information on the benefits of becoming a donor and the giving options available, please contact us.
Gifts of Cash
This is an easy and simple way to give to the Foundation. You receive a donation receipt for the full amount and have the immediate satisfaction of seeing your gift at work.
GIFTS OF PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITIES
Gifts of stocks or bonds will result in a donation receipt for the fair market value and favourable tax credits help offset any tax and capital gains.
Gifts of real estate
A gift of real estate will result in a donation receipt for the fair market value of the property, even if it is not your principal residence.
GIFTS OF LIFE INSURANCE
This option can provide a substantial gift at a modest cost. If you designate the Fredericton Community Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, you receive a tax receipt for your premiums.
Gifts of other property
Assets, such as shares in privately held companies, debentures, royalty interests or works of art can be given to the Foundation. Donation receipts will be issued for the fair market value. Tax credits help to offset tax on any associated capital gain.
