Ways to Give
Any gift – large or small – is important. By donating to Brain Canada, you are supporting some of Canada’s boldest explorers and driving brain research forward.
Give your gift its full potential by joining Brain Canada’s circle of monthly donors. An automatic pre-authorized payment will be charged to your credit card each month.
Give in memory or in honour of someone
This type of gift is a meaningful way to honour a loved one and show them you care. It can be for a special occasion (birthday, anniversary or holiday) or just to continue showing your support.
A gift of appreciated securities can mean greater tax savings for the donor than an equivalent gift of cash. The process is simple; your financial advisor transfers the securities from your account to a Brain Canada brokerage. Donors are eligible for a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities at market close on the date of transfer.
Build your legacy with Brain Canada
A legacy gift is a demonstration of your belief in the continuity of the charities that you care about and want to support for generations to come. It is a way to leave a lasting mark by supporting the charity of your choice. Regardless of age or wealth, all of us have the ability to leave a legacy.
