We will send a tax receipt for donations over $20.
Many workplaces offer programs to match the charitable contributions of their employees. Why not inquire if your workplace offers such a program so you can stretch your contribution even farther!GIFT OF SHARES:
Gifts of publicly listed securities include stocks bonds and mutual funds. Albertans who donate publicly listed securities to a charity do not have to pay capital gains tax on the growth of those shares. This became effective in May, 2006.GIFTS OF REGISTERED ASSETS:
A charity of your choice can be named as a beneficiary of either an RRSP or a RRIF, and your estate will receive a tax receipt for the value of your gift.LIFE INSURANCE:
There are at least five different options to give the gift of life insurance, resulting in a significant contribution at relatively little cost and they are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.CHARITABLE TRUSTS:
A charitable remainder trust may be created with cash or securities. The remainder interest of the fund is donated and held in trust for the charity.

A fun and informal way to get involved is to be a mentor to a GATE student. Typically these interactions happen via phone or e-mail. When teachers identify what type of expertise is needed, we search our mentor database or put out a call for volunteers. If you can spare a few minutes to share your experiences with a GATE student, we’d like to know! Send us a note at email@example.com and we’ll add your name to our database. It’s a great opportunity to share your expertise and unique experiences!
GATE PARENT ASSOCIATION REPRESENTATIVES
We are always looking for people who are able to offer their time and energy to help run the activities of the GPA. You do not have to be an expert in giftedness. We are fellow parents like you who are busy with similar issues of work and raising our families, but we care about our children and our gifted community…we want to give back.
Please consider volunteering for a role within the GATE Parent Association, so we may continue the work that we do.
