Can I give a gift of securities?
Yes. We appreciate your gift of publicly traded securities (stocks, income trust units, bonds, mutual fund units), which may be exempt from capital gains tax. For more information, contact us.
Can I leave a legacy gift that will help children in need?
You can make a bequest in your will, directing a gift to The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund and you can specify particular areas or projects where you would like to see it directed. Contact our fund administrator Cathy Lange for more information on including The Children’s Fund and Adopt-a-School in your estate planning. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604-605-2264. (Please note Cathy only works part-time but checks voicemail and will return messages.)
Can I donate clothing or other items that might be needed?
We don’t collect coats or other items. For the most part, schools are not able to wash and sort used items for distribution. If you have new items, we’d suggest you contact your local school directly.
