More Ways to Give

For supporters who would like to give more but just can’t afford to contribute a lump annual sum, a monthly contribution makes a lot of sense. A scheduled gift through your credit card will provide for the ongoing needs at Geneva Centre for Autism. Monthly giving is an excellent way to show your long-term commitment to the Centre.

• Your contribution is divided into manageable portions, providing our families with support throughout the year.
• Monthly giving is easy as your donation is done automatically.
• One tax receipt will be sent out at the end of the calendar year.

To become a monthly donor, use our online donation page and select monthly gift as your type of gift, or contact Rachel Truant at 416 322-7877 x.254.

Employees of large and small companies alike can make a significant contribution to autism services. Some methods include:

United Way. You can choose to direct your United Way pledges to benefit Geneva Centre for Autism.

Employee Directed Contribution Programs and Matching Gifts. Companies such as IBM and BMO Financial Group have integrated community giving and volunteerism into their corporate programs, encouraging employees to get involved directly in enhancing and supporting the communities in which they live and work. Other companies allow their employees to direct their charitable giving programs through matching gifts. When an employee notifies the company that he/she has made a charitable donation, the company will make a gift of the same amount, and in some cases double the amount, to the same charitable organization. Matching Gift Programs are a wonderful way for employees to make their charitable dollars stretch farther at no cost to themselves.

To find out whether your company has an Employee Giving or Matched Gift Program please check with your HR or payroll department.
As a result of changes in the 2006 federal budget, a donation of publicly-traded securities to Geneva Centre for Autism Foundation can now result in a tax receipt for the full market value of the stock and eliminate the capital gain on the donated securities.
