Match the Donation
An individual donation of a requested item is matched in kind by an anonymous donor, with the objective of augmenting the number and building class sets of various tech items, musical instruments, and laboratory equipment.
A gift-in-kind may be an item that the school needs and therefore will retain and use – musical instruments, or new technological equipment, for example – or an item the school may opt to sell, the benefit then derived in the form of proceeds from the sale. Under CRA regulation the fair market value of the item must be established, and this may require independent appraisal by a qualified expert, for a charitable tax receipt to be offered.
When individuals donate eligible securities – publicly-traded shares, bonds, mutual fund units, and employee stock options – to a registered charity such as École internationale Acadecap International School, donors are exempt from capital gains under the CRA regulation, The transfer of shares is simple and straightforward – the value of the gift is the value of the shares on the date of delivery.
