What other types of gifts can I leave to Variety?

By choosing to leave a gift of assets other than cash, you could save capital gains and estate taxes, and therefore make a bigger impact than you previously thought possible.

Will my donation be tax deductible?

Donors will receive an official receipt for tax purposes from Variety BC either by mail or email based on their communication preferences.

Gifts from foundations, auction purchases at one of our events, associations, etc would be eligible for an unofficial receipt.

For donations made online directly from our website, donors will receive an email confirmation with a link to their tax receipt shortly after the donation is made and has been processed. We advise donors to check their email junk/spam folders as sometimes the confirmation can go there if we are not on the donor’s “safe senders” or contact list.

Purchases of items such as raffle or 50/50 tickets from our events are not eligible for a tax receipt due to getting a benefit.

If you have a further question, contact Donor Services.
