Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a gift to KCS. 

One Time Gift

Donate online to your area of interest using our secure website. You can also make a donation through your KCS Student Account (current parents only), you can donate by cheque, payable to Kingsway College School, or you can make a donation to KCS using cash.

Gifts of Securities

Invest in the future of education while optimizing your financial portfolio. Donate stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to KCS, eliminate all capital gains tax and witness your contribution fueling transformative opportunities for students, all while enjoying potential tax benefits.

Work with your broker to complete this form, and contact Hallie McClelland at hmcclelland@kcs.on.ca prior to donating your gift of securities.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees. In addition, many companies will also match the donations of spouses, directors, retirees and widows. 
 
Ask your Human Resources department if your company participates in a matching gift program. When you send in a matching gift form along with your donation, you increase the impact of your gift to KCS.
 

Corporate Sponsorship

Support KCS through Corporate Sponsorship! Your contribution not only fuels various initiatives at KCS but also offers a unique opportunity to market your business to our vibrant community. Connect with Hallie McClelland at hmcclelland@kcs.on.ca to learn more about how your sponsorship can make a meaningful impact on education while promoting your brand to students, parents, faculty, and alumni.

 
Monthly Gifts
Sign up to donate monthly. Monthly giving is one of the easiest and most popular ways to donate. Gifts can be divided into manageable monthly payments. Register for monthly donations and you won’t have to worry about the process until next year, or if you decide to change your gift designation.

Major Gifts

Major gifts are $25,000+ donations and have a large impact for students at KCS today and in the future. Major gifts can be set up as a named fund at KCS, and can be donated as a one-time gift or through a multi-year pledge. 

Major gifts can be directed to areas already identified as a priority at KCS, or can be established for areas of interest to the donor. Major gifts can support many areas of the school. Our Advancement Office can certainly make suggestions, but we look at this as an open conversation to ensure that your support is closely related to your personal objectives for community support.

Multi-Year Pledges

Gifts of all sizes can be pledged to be paid over a number of years. A pledge to KCS can stretch over a longer period to make a larger impact, at a more comfortable pace.

Legacy Gifts

Legacy gifts, also known as planned or deferred gifts, allow you to make a commitment today to provide future support for KCS. These gifts give you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of future generations of KCS students. Legacy gifts provide convenience, tax savings and other benefits to you and your estate. With a legacy gift you can make a statement about how you want to be remembered. 

Leave a Gift In Your Will

Designating a gift to KCS in your will is a great way to leave a legacy, support the school and help ensure the future success of the school. It is also a strategic way to reduce the taxes owed on your estate. Upon receipt of your gift by KCS, your estate will receive a tax receipt that can be applied to the income on your final tax return.

Choosing to support KCS in your will can reduce, and in some cases, even eliminate the taxes to be paid. You can support the cause near and dear to you without impacting the legacy your family and loved ones receive.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Secure a legacy of learning and growth by designating KCS as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Your forward-thinking generosity ensures that KCS students continue to thrive, while also providing you with valuable tax advantages.

Reach out to Hallie McClelland, CFRE at hmcclelland@kcs.on.ca to learn more about how to make a legacy gift to KCS. 

Donations through Donor Advised Funds

Simplify your giving and maximize your impact with a donor-advised fund. Direct your charitable contributions to KCS through this strategic vehicle, empowering students with the resources they need to succeed, all while optimizing your tax situation.

Donations from Private Family Foundations

Unite your family's philanthropic vision with KCS's commitment to excellence in education. Establish a private family foundation and support KCS students through grants and scholarships, leaving a legacy of educational empowerment while enjoying significant tax benefits.

Flow Through Share Donations

Combine financial stewardship with social responsibility. By donating eligible shares to KCS, you can make a tangible impact on students' lives while benefiting from tax incentives associated with flow-through shares.
