HOW YOU CAN HELP

Your gift will make a difference.

Your gift, whether large or small, will make a difference to the residents of Bethany. Tax receipts are issued for the full amount of cash donations over $25.00 and for the fair market value of items such as property, stocks or gifts in kind (in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency regulations). You may choose to allow Bethany Care Foundation to direct your gift to where it is most needed, or you can designate your donation for a specific program, project or care centre.

MONTHLY GIVING

Monthly giving provides the Foundation with predictable funds, allowing us to respond to site needs and to make ongoing commitments to flagship quality of life programs such as Pastoral Care and Music Therapy.

As a Bethany Caring Community Member, you can help provide ongoing support to our care communities with a regular monthly gift.

 

It’s simple… Each month your contribution is transferred from your credit card or bank account and it can be used for greatest needs or directed to the Bethany care centre of your choice. You can increase, decrease, or suspend your gift amount at any time.

Benefits Include:

  • an annual cumulative tax receipt
  • our biannual Bethany Cares newsletter
  • invitation to a ‘behind the scenes opportunity’ at a Bethany care centre.

Celebration or memorial gifts

Memorial and celebration gifts can be given to celebrate the life of someone who was touched by Bethany’s programs or services or in honour of a person who touched your life or the lives of others.

Bethany Care Foundation can notify your gift recipient or next of kin of your thoughtful gift. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.

 

All donations are received with considerable gratitude. Charitable tax receipts for gifts of $25 or less will be issued only upon request.

HOST A SPECIAL EVENT

A unique and wonderful way to give to Bethany Care Foundation (BCF) is through holding a Third Party Event. These fundraising events are planned by caring community individuals just like you, who host a fundraising activity and donate the proceeds to BCF.

There is an abundance of creative ideas you can consider — walk-a-thons, bowling parties, garage sales, bake sales, fashion shows, concerts, car washes, BBQs, “wear jeans to work day”,  or simply hosting a dinner where instead of gifts, guests make a donation to BCF.

Legacy Giving

There are a number of meaningful ways to create a legacy gift that will honour your life and having lasting impact on Bethany, including:

Naming Bethany Care Foundation in Your Will
Naming Bethany Care Foundation in your will to receive a bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a meaningful future gift that will serve the needs of Bethany residents.

 

Making a Gift of Life Insurance
Donating a “paid up” policy to the Foundation or naming the Foundation as the owner and beneficiary of a new policy can provide a significant gift to Bethany at no or low cost, and create tax savings for you.

 

The Foundation encourages all donors contemplating a significant gift to Bethany to contact their qualified professional advisors with expertise in estate planning. Call us at 403-210-4600 or email [email protected] to learn more.

Donating Gifts-In-Kind or Real Estate
Tangible assets or property may be considered for donation, and may be eligible for tax receipting within Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. Please contact us directly to discuss your potential gift.
