LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY
We all want to make a
positive contribution to the world. To make a lasting difference not just to
our own families, but also to a cause or institution that is important to
us. Perhaps it is a school, a hospital or a particular area of medical
research or social challenge.
At Jarislowsky Fraser, we
believe the desire to "give back" is essential to our society and should be
nurtured. This is why we established the Jarislowsky Fraser Donor Advised
Foundation. "Giving back" is easier than ever, you do not have to incur the
expenses and administrative burden of establishing your own foundation. By gifting through the Foundation, you have the satisfaction of
knowing you are making the world a better place.
You gain immediate tax
benefits. You are issued a receipt for the full amount of your contribution,
which can offset income tax. Should you choose to donate securities, your
donation can also reduce capital gains tax on shares with large unrealized
capital gains. Everyone benefits!
