Other Ways To Give

Gifts of Public Securities

Providence Healthcare Foundation accepts donations of publicly listed securities that can be traded on a recognized stock exchange, e.g. TSE, NYSE. A charitable tax receipt will be issued by Providence Healthcare Foundation for the value of the shares based on the end-of-day trading price on the day the securities are transferred. Your donation of securities can be applied towards a tax credit when filing your income tax return.

Download Foundation’s Letter of Authorization form to start the process for your gift of securities. If you have any questions regarding donations of public securities, please contact Nona Bourgeois, CFRE at


Donated gifts-in-kind can be used as an important fundraising vehicle and for our various special events. Tax receipts can be issued if the gift is accompanied by an official appraisal or business receipt. In some cases, an independent appraisal verifying the value of the gift is required in order for a tax receipt to be issued. The Canada Revenue Agency rules are very specific with respect to appraised values. The Foundation will work with you to ensure an appropriate receipt is issued where possible.

If you wish to donate a gift-in-kind, please contact Nona Bourgeois, CFRE at

Matching Gifts
When making any gift to Providence Healthcare, please check with your Human Resources or Payroll Department to see if your company supports a Corporate Matching Gift Program. A matching gift is a charitable donation by a corporation that matches an employee's donation to an eligible nonprofit organization, most often dollar for dollar.

It’s as easy as checking – and you can double your impact!
