Make Monthly Donations

Both CanadaHelps.org and PayPal can enable you to set up monthly donations.

By Credit Card Through PayPal:
You can donate directly to the Hospice on-line using PayPal or Credit Card. Donations received through PayPal will receive a tax receipt directly from the Hospice. (PayPal has also offered the Hospice a discounted fee so your donation goes just a little bit farther.)

By Credit Card Through CanadaHelps.org:
You can use CanadaHelps.org!  CanadaHelps is a non-profit organization that will enable you to donate to the Hospice.  Your tax receipt will come directly from them and they charge the Hospice a fee comparable to credit card companies.  If you wish to remain anonymous, this is a great option!

CanadaHelps.ca accepts donations in US dollars, but their treatment of non-Canadian dollar donations deserves some explanation. Your donation will be treated at face value. A donation of $100US will be processed as $100CAD, but the receipt and the amount charged to your card will reflect the exchange.  (Donation of $100 will generate a receipt of $70US, assuming the exchange rate is 30%.)

Donations Through United Way:
If you donate to the United Way already, you can also designate a donation to be made to The Toronto Commandery Hospice! Many United Way locations in Canada provide a Donor Choice option that allows you to designate your donation to us. Our charitable registration number is 85136 7367 RR0001.

Mail a Cheque:

Cheques payable to “The Toronto Commandery Hospice” can be mailed to:

The Toronto Commandery Hospice
119 - 660 Eglinton Avenue East
Box 417
Toronto, ON M4G 2K2

Marketable Securities:
With current tax laws, it makes more sense to donate securities that have appreciated in value than donating cash of an equivalent amount.

Bequests are gifts made through your will. Planned today, a bequest is not paid to The Toronto Commandery Foundation Inc. after your death. You can give a specific sum of money, or a percentage of your estate.

Bequests:
By carefully planning your bequest, you can eliminate all the taxes payable on death. Your executor can claim bequests equal to 100% of the income on your final two tax returns.

To make a bequest, please speak to your lawyer about drafting or revising your will.

The following is a sample wording that could be included in your will:

"To pay the sum of * ($*) Dollars to The Toronto Commandery Hospice Inc. in the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario (the "Charity"). I direct that the person who professes to be the treasurer or such other proper officer for the time being of the Charity shall be a sufficient discharge to my Estate Trustee for such gift".

"As a Centre of Excellence, we will work to improve system performance by finding better ways to deliver quality care, engaging leading thinkers and employing best practices. The Toronto Commandery Hospice will be a continuous learning centre which develops the absolute optimal model for care."

- Martha Russel, Founding Director
