Other Ways to Give

Contact the Thompson Rivers University Foundation at the information below. We will assist you with the following giving options:

Cash Donations

You can designate cash donations to provide scholarships or bursaries, to fund a special project or leave it unrestricted so it goes to the area of greatest need. For example, funding may be donated to support students in financial need, fund field trips or buy equipment.

Securities

You can donate your investments and pay no capital gains tax, lowering your income tax. When you give, you can claim a tax credit on your personal tax return. The tax credit reduces the provincial and federal taxes payable, thereby shrinking the amount of tax you pay.

Bequests

A bequest to the TRU Foundation includes a tax benefit. Your estate will be entitled to a donation receipt for the full value of your bequest. This can significantly reduce the tax payable when your final income tax return is filed. We can meet with you and, if you wish, with your legal and financial advisors, to discuss your options. Bequest types include general, specific, residual and contingent.

Gifts in Kind

Gifts cover a wide range of products and equipment. The foundation has accepted, for the university, gifts of computers, vehicles, heavy equipment, books and works of art. A tax receipt will be issued based on a fair market value appraisal. Gifts in kind often provide donors with immediate or estate planning tax benefits.

Employer Matching

Many companies encourage their employees to donate to charitable causes by offering a corporate matching gift program. Companies with employee giving programs may double, triple or quadruple charitable gifts on behalf of their staff. Each company sets its own matching gift guidelines. Inquire with your company to find out if your employer matches donations.
