Ways to Give Financially

  2. You can contact the CVTRS at: 250-338-1968 and make a gift by credit card. You can make a single gift or set up a monthly gift. Monthly giving is a convenient and affordable way for you to give and enables us to keep our administrative costs low, or;
  3. Drop in, say hello, and let us process your donation in person

By donating to CVTRS you contribute to improving the quality of life for our riders and their families, which is also felt by our staff and volunteers. You also help feed and care for our horses including their feed, veterinarian care and ongoing training. Specialized equipment is also a necessity in proving therapeutic riding services.

Your donation will also provide learning opportunities for staff …… You can specify where you would like your donation applied or you can let us decide what we think is the best fit for your donation.  


Building a Legacy with Securities

Gifts of securities are an easy way to give and support CVTRS and at the same time receive significant tax benefits.  

Thanks to changes in the Federal Budget of May 2006, you no longer pay capital gains when you gift appreciated securities to a registered charity.  You are required to pay tax on 50% of a capital gain if you sell appreciated stock or mutual funds.  However, if you donate these to a charity prior to sale, capital gains have been eliminated.  You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the securities, which can be used to further reduce income tax payable. Donating securities directly to the CVTRS provides donors with a greater tax advantage than selling the securities and donating the cash directly.
