Gifts from USA

The Canadian Olympic Foundation invites fans of Team Canada residing in the United States of America to show their pride and support for our Olympians and the next generation of high performance athletes. We have partnered with Charities Aid Foundation of America to enable U.S residents to make an impact on Team Canada and receive a U.S tax receipt. Online donations can be made here.

Gifts of Securities

When you donate publicly listed securities, you are making an immediate impact towards Team Canada, while not having to pay capital gains taxes. You will also receive a tax receipt for the closing price recorded on the day the securities are received into our account, or at sale value if securities are disposed of on the day of the receipt. For further information or to notify us of a transfer, please use this form.

Experiential and Event Giving

You can raise money by planning and implementing a successful community event in support of Team Canada, the Canadian Sport System and Canada’s next generation of high performance athletes. Examples include fundraisers, silent auctions, tournaments or unique workplace events. Learn more by contacting Jill Philipp at jphilipp@olympic.ca. More information to come.

My Olympic Dinner

A once in a lifetime intimate dining experience with a Canadian Olympian. You and your guests will share dinner, drinks and stories with an inspirational athlete and be a part of their incredible journey. Fully customizable, the soiree can be a simple sit-down meal, cocktail party or multi-course gourmet dinner and can range from a casual get together to a night of elegance.  Invite your friends, family and colleagues to eat, drink and support our most notable athletes who make Canada one of the top nations to beat during the Olympic Games.

Endowment

By creating an endowed gift, a donor can help create a sustained source of funding. Funds in the Endowment are held in perpetuity; the income derived from these investments provides a long-term and predictable source of support. An endowed gift is an investment in the future of Canadian high performance sport allowing the Canadian Olympic Foundation to continue to support our talented athletes, coaches, sports and sport systems for years to come. We invite you to be a part of our future with an investment in the Endowment or with the establishment of a named fund. To make an Endowment gift to the Foundation or for more information, please contact Selga Apse, Director of Business Operations, at sapse@olympic.ca or  (416) 324 4297.

Legacy

Planning a legacy gift to the Canadian Olympic Foundation demonstrates your love of sport and your investment in high performance athletes and the Canadian sport system. Your commitment for the future will celebrate Canadian excellence in high performance sport for new generations of athletes. A legacy gift allows you the satisfaction and joy of knowing that you are contributing to the ongoing success of the Canadian Olympic movement and will not affect your income during your lifetime. In addition, gifts made to charitable organizations will offer significant tax benefits and a bequest to the Foundation will reduce the amount of taxes owed by your estate.
