Ways to Give

The generosity of donors ensures that our students have innovative, inspiring and varied learning experiences throughout their journeys at The Bishop Strachan School. Every donation makes a positive, long-lasting difference in the lives of BSS girls.
There are many ways to make a charitable contribution to BSS and enrich girls’ education.

  • Give By Phone

    You can make a gift over the phone using your credit card by calling Susmita Neville, Manager, Advancement Services, at 416-483-4325, ext. 1875.
  • 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. 

    If you would like to make a gift of stock, please download this form. For more information, please contact Lori Angle, Director of Development, at langle@bss.on.ca.

    For donors in the United States, please email frisbe@frisbe.org to request their financial institution's wire transfer or stock transfer instructions.
