Be a Monthly Donor
Giving monthly is one of the strongest statements of commitment you can make. Monthly support is important to Sunshine because we can count on your gift and plan ahead. A gift of $10, $20 or $30 will help ensure that every Sunshine Child will have their dream come true.
By choosing this option, The Sunshine Foundation will automatically withdraw your donation from your bank account on the 15th of the month. You may revoke your authorization at any time, subject to providing 10 days’ notice.
Give In Honour or In Memory
Join the special group of Sunshine supporters who mark their significant occasion with a donation in lieu of gifts. Celebrations may include birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and retirement.
The Sunshine Foundation is happy to notify the next of kin when a gift is made in memory of a loved one. Our giving form allows you to indicate the next of kin as well as the loved one.
Build a Dream Legacy
Through legacy giving you can ensure that many children will live their dreams for years into the future, allowing you to do lasting good in your community while optimizing tax and other financial benefits. Professional advice from your lawyer, accountant or financial advisor will help determine the best option for you:
Bequest in a Will: Making a gift of cash or property to Sunshine in your will may significantly reduce your estate taxes.
Life Insurance: You can make a large gift in the future by paying relatively small life insurance premiums now. Naming Sunshine as the owner or beneficiary of a life insurance policy (new or existing) will also entitle you to tax advantages.
Securities: Reduce capital gains by donating securities (stocks, bonds, GICs) directly to Sunshine. A donation receipt is issued for the full market value of the security at the date of the transfer.
