Planned and Estate Giving

The Gift of a Bequest in Your Will
Including Daily Bread Food Bank as a beneficiary in your will allows you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible. Also, a bequest provides charitable tax credits for your estate.

Please contact Donor Services at [email protected] or 416-203-0050 ext 550.

The Gift of Life Insurance
The Daily Bread Food Bank can be the beneficiary of a life insurance policy with the benefits of that policy going directly to charity upon death. This arrangement ensures that the proceeds do not pass through your estate, thereby circumventing probate. This entitles your estate to the tax benefit.

To donate these types of gifts, pleasefill out the Donation of Securities Form. Please ensure the form is signed by the donor and returned to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Please note, this form will be used to issue the donor a tax receipt.

Gift of Securities

Donating publicly-traded stock and securities is a tax-smart way to support Daily Bread.

Donating securities directly avoids tax on capital gains, maximizes the return on your investment, and protects the tax credits for use against other taxable income.

You will also receive a tax receipt for the full appreciated value of a donation of publicly traded stock or securities, and the transfer is easy and fast.

To submit your gift, please fill out our Securities Donation form by clicking button below. We will be in touch when the transfer is complete.

To discuss or advise us of your gift, contact Donor Services, [email protected], at 416-203-0050 ext. 550
