Annual Gifts

The Rideau Waterway Land Trust (RWLT) is delighted to report that many within our community make an annual donation, or they may choose to join our monthly giving program, and the organization continues to be successful. The equation is simple – the more supporters the more natural lands that can be preserved.

Most annual gifts are gifts of cash either made by cheque or credit card. We accept VISA, Mastercard or American Express. The RWLT issues a Canadian Charitable receipt for all gifts of $25 or more. For our U.S. friends we partner with American Friends of Canadian Land Trusts and this enables those U.S. taxpaying supporters to get a tax credit to be used when filing their U.S. tax returns.

It is easy to support the RWLT and its programs.

Some supporters wish to make their annual donations by Stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other publicly traded securities. This is especially advantages for those of you who have appreciated securities. In addition to the tax receipt issued by the RWLT for the full market value of the gift you are also exempted from any tax due on the capital gain generated, a tax you would have to pay if you sold the securities outright.
