There are many ways you can make a positive impact in the life of a child or youth struggling with mental health problems. Your support can make all the difference by helping a child or youth develop confidence, better navigate the world, and reach his or her potential!
By participating as a monthly donor, you can easily support the Kinark Foundation and show your ongoing dedication to advancing the mental health and well-being of children and youth. A predetermined monthly contribution, withdrawn automatically from your credit card, is a convenient and efficient giving option - no need to write cheques, find stamps and mail envelopes. Also, we're able to reduce mailing and administrative costs, which means your contribution has greater impact!

Gifts of Securities
Donating appreciated stocks is now the most tax-effective way to make a substantial gift to the Kinark Foundation, during your lifetime or as part of a legacy gift. Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds can be made to the Kinark Foundation and be sheltered from any related capital gains taxes that would normally be owing. The gift receipt issued is based on the value of the securities at the close of business on the day of transfer. Donors receive a tax credit for their gift and have the additional incentive of paying no capital gains tax!
If you would like to make a gift of securities, please contact the Executive Director at 905-944-7086 to make arrangements or click here to donate via our secure online giving page hosted by CanadaHelps.
Tributes Gifts In Honour or In Memory of a Loved One
Making a donation to honour a birthday, anniversary or graduation, or to remember a loved one, is a way for you to pay tribute to the important people in your life. You will receive an official receipt for the value of your donation and your loved one, or his/her family in the case of a memorial donation, will be notified of your thoughtfulness.
