Giving Tuesday:
Celebrate the Causes you Care About on December 3rd

After the hype of Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday. This year, join the movement dedicated to giving back by donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds towards building stable, year-round affordable housing on Cortes Island.

Did you know that Canada has one of the best charitable donation systems in the world for tax credits? It's true.

When you gift securities you get a tax receipt for the full amount you donate and you eliminate the capital gains on the securities. This enables the donor to use the tax benefit to give more!

Canada Helps accepts securities from any country and the funds are converted to CAD when they are sent to Cortes Community Housing. You will always receive a Canadian tax receipt.

We have $150,000 to raise to reach our fundraising goal and with your support we can get there!
