Ways to Donate

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
(2 Corinthians 9:7)

Stewardship isn’t just about money; at its core, it’s about the worship and praise of God and serving God through our life and vocation. As part of the Church’s mission to care for those in need, the Diocese directs its resources to the most vulnerable members of our communities.

Funded by your generosity, our work helps to sustain the lives of families and individuals in our own parishes and communities, and internationally.

In addition to our annual giving programs, we welcome all donations and commit to using your gift where the need is greatest, for what is vital to our Church and community.

When you donate publicly traded stock and securities, you’ll receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and you won’t be subject to any capital gains tax.

Benefits of making a gift of stock or securities:

  1. Capital gains tax on publicly listed stocks and securities are exempt when you donate your shares rather than selling and donating the proceeds.
  2. The value of your tax receipt will be based on the market closing price on the day the Diocese takes legal receipt of your stock or securities into our brokerage account.
  3. You may claim charitable donations up to 75 per cent of your net income, and a five-year carry-forward on any unused donation amount is permitted.

The Diocese of Toronto depends on the generous support of donors and volunteers to fulfill our mission. We collect your personal information to process your donation and issue a tax receipt. Your personal information will not be sold or traded with other organizations. For more information about our privacy practices, view our Privacy Policy.
