The holiday season is upon us and with it the warm spirit of generosity and giving. To many donors, the end of the year is the time to impact causes that matter. For some, it is time to reflect on financial gains and maximize tax benefits by donating to charity.
Making a year-end gift to FINCA Canada has an immediate impact on the communities we serve. Donations to FINCA Canada create livelihoods for many clients around the world through financial inclusion. In turn, those clients’ businesses create livelihoods for millions more people. Ultimately, your support of FINCA programs alleviates poverty in underserved markets.
Here Are 4 Ways to Make a Year End Gift to FINCA Canada:
- Make a one-time gift to get a tax deduction. And this holiday season, thanks to a special 4-to-1 Matching Gift courtesy of the Government of Canada, your donation can go either further with five times the impact!
- Become a monthly donor to make an ongoing contribution that can have a greater impact over time, promoting economic opportunities for our clients each year. Monthly donations also allow you a tax deduction yearly.
- Make a Gift of Stocks of any securities you’ve owned for twelve months or longer, whose value has increased. By giving these securities to FINCA Canada, you receive a charitable deduction for their full fair market value, and you avoid tax on the capital gain.
- Leave a legacy gift through your estate planning that will support underserved families for generations to come. With this gift, you could receive an estate tax charitable deduction.
In the words of one of our donors:
FINCA strives to make a positive difference through tangible improvements in the daily lives of the underserved. These opportunities include personal improvement and, in time, economic improvements. Perhaps you’ve seen local signs reading ‘Your tax dollars at work.’ Why not embrace a global vision instead: ‘Give a little, change a lot?’
The holiday season is the best time to support causes you care about. Additionally, gifts to charity have tax advantages, which benefit donors every year. Our team at FINCA Canada is ready to help you decide which way of giving works best for you. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss giving options.
