GIFTS of Securities
Donating publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities is a tax-smart way to support Special Olympics Saskatchewan 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! Visit www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/saskatchewan-special-olympics-society-inc/ and select "donate securities".
GIFTS IN KIND
Gifts in Kind provide Special Olympics Saskatchewan with invaluable office and sports equipment, technology and day to day goods that are essential to run our programs and services in communities across Canada. Some companies also offer their services free of charge: for instance, by printing an event program or providing professional advice. All of this reduces our overhead costs and allow us to spend more resources on our greatest priority: enriching the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability through sport.
In donating a Gift in Kind to Special Olympics Saskatchewan, we can publicize to our athletes, families, and our online community the generosity of your gift and your commitment to helping our athletes, of all ages and a wide range of abilities, to participate in programs and to experience the transformative power and joy of sport.
Special Olympics Saskatchewan offers a variety of ways for your company to support our mission, including cash donations, in-kind contributions, supporting specific athlete programs, sponsoring our annual charity golf tournament, supporting Provincial Games, or local fundraising events through our communities.
We also welcome long-term partnerships with packages at various levels, which can further engage your employees with volunteer programs and other community-based opportunities. Each Special Olympics corporate relationship is individually structured to best meet your company’s objectives and our needs.
