Every Gift Counts

OUTRIGHT GIFTS:

The Foundation is pleased to accept cash gifts as well as cheque, VISA, MasterCard or American Express.  Gifts may be one-time contributions, or long-term commitments spread over months or even years.  Donations can also be made easily in person, by mail or by phone and securely online via CanadaHelps or PayPal.

COMMEMORATIVE/TRIBUTE/IN MEMORY GIFTS:

Through your donation, you may choose to pay tribute to someone special or to commemorate a special occasion.  This gift can be made in honour or in memory of a resident or a family/friend.

GIFTS OF SECURITIES AND MUTUAL FUND SHARES:

A great way to reduce your capital gains tax is by donating the appreciated value to Union Villa.

MATCHING GIFTS:

Many companies offer a Matching Gift program.  Please contact your HR Department to inquire whether a Matching Gift is possible.

MONTHLY GIVING:

Giving monthly is easy and convenient.  Your monthly donation can be charged to your credit card.  This is a great way to make larger gifts more manageable.

PLANNED GIVING:

Planned giving is a thoughtful process of arranging a future gift that will impact our residents, ensuring funds are available to enrich and enhance the living environment for years to come.  You may choose to make a Gift of Appreciated Property, a Gift of Annuities, a bequest or through a Life Insurance policy.  Planned gifts can be undesignated and thus can be used to support Union Villa's highest priorities, or can be designated to impact a specific program or resident space.

ENDOWMENTS:

Endowment giving offers opportunity to create a lasting legacy. Endowment gifts are not spent, they are invested in perpetuity, with the income providing a stable source of annual funding to support Union Villa priorities.

With every gift to the Unionville Home Society Foundation, Union Villa advances excellence in long term care and seniors housing.
