Ways to Give

Making a gift to 360ºkids indicates your willingness to support the future of our youth. With your generous support, 360ºkids can continue to assist the most vulnerable in our communities to become safe and stable.

You can make a donation and have an impact on the lives of our Region’s youth immediately. We are very grateful for financial gifts at any level. Unrestricted funds allow us to direct your gift to the area of programming with the greatest need.

A $50.00 donation allows 360ºkids to provide 10 meals to youth.

Monthly Giving

It’s a convenient way to pledge your support to 360ºkids and provide us with stable, reliable funding every month. Monthly giving cuts down on our administrative costs, so we can put more of your gift to work where it matters most – providing support to the children, youth and families of York Region who reach out to us for support.

A $100.00 monthly donation allows us to provide 1 hour of counselling to a youth in crisis.

In-Kind Gifts

Gifts in-kind are welcomed based on our organization’s needs at the time you wish to give. If you wish to make an in-kind gift, please see our wish lists at the bottom of this page for a list of current needs. While there may be a need in the future, if your desired donation is not on this list, unfortunately we do not have the resources to transport and store your generous donation.

LEGACY GIFTS TO 360ºkids

There are numerous ways that you can make a donation to leave a Legacy Gift to 360ºkids. This type of donation can be given now or in the future and can provide you with the opportunity to establish a personal legacy.

Bequest

A bequest, the most common type of future gift, is a commitment made through your Will to be distributed by your estate upon your death. A bequest may be a specific piece of property, sum of money or a portion of your estate. Most people make a bequest when their Wills are drawn.

Securities

Now more than ever, it is attractive to donors to gift publicly traded securities to charities. You can now give stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, as well as futures and options without paying the capital gains tax. To make a gift of securities to 360ºkids, please download our Securities Transfer Form and discuss these personal options with your financial planner.

Gift of Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance will enable you to make a major gift through a policy you already own or through a series of affordable premium payments. There are a number of ways to donate and plan your gift using life insurance.

RRSPs and RRIFs

It is now easier to donate the proceeds of your Registered Retirement Saving Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs) to a designated charity like 360ºkids. Simply change the beneficiary information on the plan document and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change.

For more information on the various forms of Legacy Giving, please contact Lesley Sims 905-475-6694 ext. 315 to discuss personal options that are best suited to your needs.
