Donation Funds
My Donation History

In addition to ESC accepting cash donations to its Scholarship Fund (and the other scholarships listed below), the Fund is now set up to accept in-kind donations of capital property (such as securities). Simply put, on top of the normal tax credit from the Canada Revenue Agency, the donor also benefits in not having to pay capital gains tax on donated capital property.  (It should be noted the foregoing information is not tax advice and ESC encourages potential donors to consult a qualified tax advisor to identify income tax considerations that are specific to their situation.)  For more information please feel free to contact the ESC Treasurer at: ESCTreasurer@esc-sec.ca

 

Please note: tax receipts for donation are issued and mailed monthly
