How to Give 

QCF gratefully accepts donations in many forms:

  • Cash and cheques
  • E-mail money transfer (eg Interac)
  • Visa and MasterCard (via Paypal)
  • Multi-year pledges
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Real estate and other assets
  • Gifts made through estate planning 

As a charity we do all we can to minimize costs, we ask that donations be forwarded to us by cheque, payable to "Quesnel Community Foundation". This eliminates any fees associated with other forms of payment. Please click here to print the donation form and submit with your cheque. If you wish to donate cash, please contact our Coordinator, Anna Rankin via qcf@shaw.ca or (250) 747 3063

A second option is to make your donation via Interac e-transfer, an e-mail process costing a fairly nominal transaction fee of approximately $1.50 paid by you, the donor (meaning we receive 100% of your intended donation).  Please click here for details about how to send an Interac e-mail transfer.

Option three is by Visa or Mastercard through PayPal - simply click on the Paypal button located at the top and bottom of each page. Please be advised that we pay a fee of 3% for donations made via this option.

A popular option is to donate in-kind, eg. with existing investments such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. We strongly recommend you consult your tax, legal, and financial advisors prior to making your donation to make sure you consider any and all tax and legal implications. Sometimes it is to your advantage to sell the investment and donate the resulting cash; other times it is best to donate in-kind, Your advisors will tell you how best to proceed, at which point please contact our Treasurer, Tom Weckworth, by clicking here; our Securities Donation form is available by clicking here.

When looking to donate real estate or other assets, please discuss your intentions with us, as well as your tax, legal, and financial advisors, before effecting any transfer of ownership. You can begin that conversation by emailing our Treasurer, Tom Weckworth, by clicking here.
