Special Olympics PEI is largely a volunteer-based organization, and we depend on support from our partners and donors to provide programs, mentorship, and resources. You can be certain that your donation will be put to use directly benefiting islanders with an intellectual disability. Furthermore, 100% of donations stay here in PEI.
Your contribution, no matter the size, will aid us in ensuring that the over 600 children, youth and adults with an intellectual disability across PEI who use our programs are able to continue to do so.
Legacy Giving Options
There can be many benefits to Planned Giving besides getting to enjoy seeing the impact your gift can have in enriching the lives of Special Olympics PEI athletes. A planned gift is a very personal decision and we encourage you to discuss it with your financial advisors. Meet a PEI couple who made Planned Giving a reality.
Gift of Securities
Donating publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities is a tax-smart way to support Special Olympics PEI while enhancing your charitable gift. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that would be payable if you were to first sell the stock, and then donate the proceeds.
Donating securities is easy! Simply fill out the Securities Donation Form to have your brokerage electronically transfer your gift of stock or securities from your account to Special Olympics PEI’s account. You will receive a tax receipt for income tax purposes for the full appreciated value of your securities on the day that they are received.
