Shares, bonds, bills, warrants, and/or futures traded in Canadian, American or major international exchanges can be donated to UTS. Gifts of stocks and securities do not incur the capital gains tax. A tax receipt will be issued for the full appreciated value of the gift. The receipt value will be based on the closing trading price on the day that the gift is received by UTS. Download the UTS Gift of Stocks & Securities transfer form.
Mutual funds can be donated to UTS through the University of Toronto. A tax receipt will be issued for the full appreciated value of the gift. The receipt value will be based on the closing trading price on the day that the gift is received by the University of Toronto. Please contact Christine Santos in the Office of Advancement for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416.978.3919.
Leave your legacy with a planned gift - a donation that you arrange now to be realized in the future. Planned gifts include gifts in your will, gifts of life insurance, annuities, retirement funds and charitable remainder trusts. Learn more about your options here.
You can designate UTS as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary on an existing life insurance policy and your estate will receive a tax credit. Or you may transfer a new life insurance policy to UTS and receive a tax receipt for your annual premiums. Carole Zamroutian at email@example.com or (416) 946-5768 would be happy to help you with the details.
Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. In addition, many companies will also match the donations of spouses, directors, retirees and widows. Ask your Human Resources department if your company participates in a matching gift program. When you send in a matching gift form along with your donation, you double your gift to UTS.
Many of our donors choose to honour a teacher, family member or other special people in their lives by making a commemorative gift. When you make a gift in another person's name, the honouree is notified and, for gifts of $20 or more, you receive a charitable tax receipt. More importantly, both you and your honouree can take pride in the fact that your support is helping UTS deliver a transformative education to current and future students. Complete our online donation form to make a commemorative gift.
Non-monetary gifts‐in‐kind include, but are not limited to, musical instruments, books, supplies, and real estate. In order for a tax receipt to be issued, UTS or the donor must be able to establish the fair market value of the gift. In some cases, an independent written appraisal may be required. UTS reserves the right to refuse gifts that are not of benefit to UTS or gifts that UTS cannot preserve or display in an appropriate fashion, e.g. gifts of cultural property. All gifts-in-kind must be arranged through the Office of Advancement. For more information, contact Christine Santos in the Office of Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-978-3919.
For those of you who give to United Way through your corporate programs or otherwise, please note that you can designate UTS as the designate charity. Be sure to let us know that you have made your gift at 416-946-5768 / email@example.com so that we may recognize your donation.
