Give – Other Ways of Giving
Matching employee funds
Do you work with a company that makes donations on behalf of its employees? Or perhaps they have a dollar-for-dollar matching fund. Some employee funds who have recently made donations to TCC are:
- Cenovus Employee Foundation
- Provincial Employees Community Services Fund (BC)
- Encana Cares Foundation
- Talisman Energy
Donate a car
Donate A Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for Thyroid Cancer Canada. They provide free towing in many areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. Visit donatecar.ca.
When you donate your car, recreation vehicle, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle to Thyroid Cancer Canada through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. Donate A Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for your Charity to benefit. After your Vehicle Donation is complete, Thyroid Cancer Canada will send you a tax receipt within 45 days!
Donate your points
TCC participates in Shoppers Optimum Points® Donation Program. If you have a Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum card you can choose to donate your accumulated points to Thyroid Cancer Canada.
By making a legacy gift, you are able to make a significant investment into the lives of thyroid cancer patients, without affecting your current lifestyle. For information about legacy giving options, please contact the Executive Director.
Insurance policies and estates
Donors have named Thyroid Cancer Canada as a recipient via their insurance policies (eg. Living Benefits, Critical Illness, Death Beneficiary). Insurance companies who have made donations to TCC (directed to do so by patient-members) are:
- Great-West Life Assurance
- The Canada Life Assurance Company
TCC was very generously named as a beneficiary in an estate (ie. in a Last Will and Testament), by a donor who wished to remain anonymous.
Donation of securities
Instead of cash donations, a donor can donate securities (eg. stocks, bonds, mutual funds) and receive a receipt at fair market value.
