DeafBlind Ontario Foundation
17665 Leslie Street, Unit 15
Friends with Vision is a monthly giving program that offers donors an easy, convenient way to provide ongoing support. Donors receive annual tax receipts for their gifts.
A gift in memory of a loved one is a special way to support DeafBlind Ontario Foundation. It is often a thoughtful remembrance in lieu of funeral flowers. DeafBlind Ontario Foundation will send a personalized card acknowledging your gift to the family of the deceased person.
Special “in honour of” gifts are a meaningful way to commemorate a holiday, birthday, wedding, or other special occasion. The special person you honour will receive a personalized card from DeafBlind Ontario Foundation acknowledging your gift.
Publicly Traded Securities
An outright gift of securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds) gives you a donation receipt for the full value of your securities and a very special tax benefit – all of your realized capital gain will be exempt from taxation. Gifts of publicly traded securities can also be designated to DeafBlind Ontario Foundation in your will. No capital gains means a significant tax savings to your estate.
The most common type of legacy gift is the charitable bequest, in which you name DeafBlind Ontario Foundation as a beneficiary in your Will. Bequests may specify a certain sum of money or, if you prefer, you may give a particular asset or a portion of the residue of your estate after other obligations have been paid. Your estate will be entitled to a donation receipt for the full value of your gift, which may significantly reduce the tax payable with your final income tax return.

A gift of life insurance can fund a significant future gift to DeafBlind Ontario Foundation at a modest annual cost to you. Name DeafBlind Ontario Foundation as a beneficiary in an existing policy or work with us to purchase a new one. When you transfer ownership of the policy, you will receive a donation receipt for its fair market value and, if applicable, any premiums you may continue to pay in the future.
