  • Give By Phone

    You can make a gift over the phone using your credit card by calling Joanne Weedmark, Director, Annual Giving Programs, at 416-484-4712.
  • Give Appreciated Stock

    Donors who transfer appreciated publicly traded securities directly to The Bishop Strachan School Foundation avoid capital gains tax. These donors receive a donation receipt based on the fair market value of the shares (for the close of market on the day the securities are received by the Foundation). See a tax advantages chart.

    Donors who prefer to sell shares to make a cash donation are issued a donation tax credit and must pay tax on the capital gains associated with the transaction.
