Do you hold securities that have increased in value in recent years? When you donate them directly to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society, you do not pay capital gains tax and you’re able to give the full value of your securities.
If you donate your shares directly to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society, we receive a higher donation and you receive an official receipt showing a larger contribution. This means a considerable tax benefit for you and a larger donation for CDSS!
From our recent resource development work, we are keenly aware of how important making connections can be for garnering support, picking up momentum, and getting our goals achieved. Because of the critical financial support we receive from you, our supporters, we have been able to continue to be the warm and reassuring voice on the phone responding to a pregnant woman who has just learned she is expecting a baby who, in all likelihood, will have Down syndrome. We want to be able to continue to support the teacher who in the midst of the chaos of elementary school takes the hand of a child to lead them into the circle of friendship and ultimately into life of interconnectedness and community.
The Canadian Down Syndrome Society does not receive any government or agency funding and relies solely on the generosity of the community and people like you to #SeeTheAbility of Canadians with Down syndrome. They provide vital life resources, to families, medical teams, teachers, community support workers and employers to ensure that people with Down syndrome thrive and achieve their full potential.
