“Society grows great when we plant trees in whose shade we know we shall never sit”. Greek Proverb

Planned giving is a wonderful way to make a larger, lasting contribution to a cause you care about. There are a number of ways to accomplish this.

    • Make a Gift in your will: Creating a gift in your will has significant tax benefits and will save babies’ lives long into the future. Please review the following Legacy Guide and get in touch to discuss how The Sandra Schmirler Foundation can be part of your legacy.
    • Donate securities: Making a gift of securities to The Sandra Schmirler Foundation can have a substantial impact on the future of Neonatal care in Canada. It can also deliver sizeable tax savings to you. Donating securities (stocks, mutual funds, flow-through shares, etc.) allows you to eliminate the capital gains tax you’d be obligated to pay if you sold them and donated the proceeds. Making a gift of securities is simple and impactful. Speak with your financial advisor today and download our Gift of Securities Form now.
    • Donate a life insurance policy: Donating a life insurance policy is an outstanding way to support the purchase of life-saving equipment for premature or critically ill babies while positively impacting your taxes.

Corporate Partnerships – In certain circumstances, The Sandra Schmirler Foundation will consider corporate partnerships that help us work towards achieving our vision of giving every baby a chance to grow up and be a champion.
