Charitable giving is about creating opportunities - for individuals and for causes you believe in. The Private Giving Foundation is also about creating opportunities.
The Private Giving Foundation has been created as an independent public charity dedicated to encouraging charitable giving in Canada, to provide you with the opportunity to build a legacy of helping others.
Contributions to the Private Giving Foundation are invested through your donor-advised account in a special series of units of the TD Balanced Income Fund, established exclusively for the Foundation with a reduced Management Expense Ratio. This means that more assets stay in the Private Giving Foundation, available for gifting to charities.
The Foundation takes care of everything else. While helping others, you may also realize significant tax advantages. You will receive detailed quarterly account statements, and an official donation tax receipt in each year that a contribution is made to the Private Giving Foundation.
If you're looking for a way to plan your giving more effectively and create a lasting legacy to support the charities that matter most to you, the Private Giving Foundation is an excellent solution.
