We can’t do it Without You!
Donations of food, personal hygiene and household products enables Pelham Cares to provide monthly hampers to Pelham families in need of assistance. With an objective to provide balanced and nutritious hampers, and assisting financially challenged families to ensure there is adequate food in their cupboards. All donations big and small are appreciated!
Stock & Security Donation
Canada’s tax incentives for charitable donations are designed to make it easy and advantageous for you to support Pelham Cares. Donations of securities listed on prescribed stock exchanges, mutual funds and segregated funds of life insurance companies, to charities, do not have to include any portion of the resulting capital gain in their income. Simply have your investment account holder or advisor contact Pelham Cares to arrange for a transfer. A receipt will be issued for the value as of the day it is received.
Donate an Insurance Policy
Most families buy life insurance to provide financial security to loved ones in a time of need, but life insurance can also be used as a creative financial tool to fund a gift cost-effectively. There are several ways to support Pelham Cares through a gift of life insurance. You can purchase a new policy and transfer ownership to Pelham Cares, give a paid-up insurance policy, or retain ownership of your policy and name Pelham Cares as the beneficiary. Pelham Cares encourages you to speak to your lawyer or financial advisor to determine the charitable tax benefits and obtain advice on this approach to giving.
