Would you like to make a donation to the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor and benefit from numerous fiscal advantages ? If you hold stocks that are listed on the Market and that have seen an interesting growth, here is the procedure :
Since 2006, the federal and provincial governments have granted an important fiscal advantage to people who make stock donations to a charity such as the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor. Indeed, if you give the stocks directly to the foundation instead of selling them and then making a donation from the capital gain, your capital gain will be entirely exempt from taxes ! This way, you largely increase your contribution to the academy and you receive a tax receipt equivalent to the fair market value of your assets when you give them.
Table of fiscal advantages
A securities donation includes stocks that are listed on the Market and other eligible assets. You may donate stocks that are listed on the Market, savings bonds, units from a mutual fund, and other assets alike. Furthermore, making such a donation is one of the most advantageous ways, on a fiscal point of view, to help a charity. A stocks donation or any other securities donation gives you an income tax credit.
When you transfer stocks directly to the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor, the capital gain is not taxable at all, either on the federal or provincial side. Therefore, it is much more advantageous to transfer the assets directly to the charity rather than to donate the money you would get from selling the same assets.

in memoriam donation
The deceased’s entourage may express their condolences to the family with a generous gesture called In memoriam donation. That contribution emphasizes how much the deceased supported the growth and the mission of the academy.
Please note that for every donation of 50 $ and more, the Foundation will write a receipt to the donator for income tax purpose.
To increase the value of your donation

Corporations that join the Matching Donations program stand to contribute an equivalent or higher sum than the one donated by their employee(s).

planned donation to insure sustainability
By chosing the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor, you act in a concrete way to improve the knowledge of our future citizens.
life insurance policy donation
Donating a life insurance (on yourself) to the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor is an easy way to give a substantial amount, often at a very low cost. There are different ways to donate a life insurance policy.
You may consider two ways to donate a life insurance policy :
Purchase a new contract
When you name the Fondation as the irrevocable beneficiary of your life insurance policy, you benefit right away from donation income tax credits that are equivalent to the annual premium you have paid to keep the policy in force.
You may also wish not to claim the annual income tax credits, but rather to transfer them to your estate. In both cases, the Fondation will receive the principal amount in case of death.
Transfer an existing policy
For various reasons, a policy you bought a few years ago may not be as useful anymore. In that case, you may chose to transfer the policy ownership to the Fondation. You will then get a fiscal receipt equivalent to the surrender value of the policy.
Donators must always seek professional advice so that they may chose what responds best to their personal situation.
You may chose to bequeath part of your total patrimony to the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor. For example, you might want to give 75% of your holdings to your heirs and 25% to a good cause of your choice.
We often postpone writing a will. However, it is the best way to make sure that our wishes will be carried acccording to what we have planned.
Once you have arranged to ensure the welfare of your loved-ones, you can also leave another type of legacy : a kind that will leave some values to a cherished caused by testamentary will.
If you decide to support the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor, a legacy may come in different ways :
life insurance policy or retirement plan legacy
You may name the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor as beneficiary, in part or in all, of your retirement plan (in case of a registered pension plan and when you do not have a spouse) or of your life insurance policy.
You may bequeath to the Fondation de l’Académie du Trésor a sum of money, real estate, works of art, corporate shares or other personal holdings.
You may bequeath a specific holding only if and when one or many of your heirs pass away.
