You may give with your credit card through our secure online donation system here, or over the phone at 416-921-2035.
Gifts of cash (cheques, money orders, etc.) can be made to the Toronto Foundation and sent to:
Attention: Donor Relations
33 Bloor Street East, Suite 1603
Please include your Fund’s name on the memo line.
We also accept treasury bills and GICs. If you wish to liquidate an asset to make a cash gift, consider donating the asset rather than the cash - there may be some tax advantages to doing so.
Publicly Traded Securities
There is no capital gains tax on gifts of publicly-traded securities to public charities and foundations like us, which makes this already popular type of gift even more advantageous. The completion of a simple form is all it takes to make an electronic gift of securities to a Fund at the Foundation.

A well prepared, up-to-date Will is important so that you can make your final wishes known. A charitable bequest in your Will can provide a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your Estate, or a gift of the residue, which consists of whatever remains in your Estate after gifts to your loved ones and all expenses have been paid. Here is some sample wording for a general gift to Toronto Foundation:
RRSPs, RRIFs and TFSAs
You may donate all, or a portion of your Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) or your Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs). Tax receipts are provided for the amount donated. Certain government rules may apply. Please contact us to discuss this type of gift.
Did you know?
In lieu of gifts for a birthday, anniversary, or any other occasion, many of our Fundholders ask their friends and family to make a gift to their Fund instead.
