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". Our address is at the very bottom of this page. Mailing cheques 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 advisers 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 advisers will tell you how best to proceed.  

When looking to donate real estate or other assets, please discuss your intentions your tax, legal, and financial advisers, before effecting any transfer of ownership. Then please connect with our Treasurer - email qcf@shaw.ca for contact information. 

The Best Fit for Your Donation   

The following types of funds offer a wide selection of donation opportunities.  Whether you wish to support one of the Foundation’s existing funds or establish your own fund, you will be joining many other donors who have a desire to make a difference in our community – forever!  Funds may be named and are suitable for individuals, families, memorials, organizations, or businesses.   

  • Community Endowment Fund - the income from this fund is provided to local organizations to address current and future needs.  This fund is the ideal way for individuals, groups and businesses to make a difference.
  • Family Fund - this fund gives donors the opportunity to help our community and at the same time be acknowledged and recognized.  Individuals and businesses making a donation of $5,000 or more - or whose cumulative donations total $5,000 or more - automatically get a fund set up in their own name, business name, or in the name of someone they wish to honor. Family funds can be added to at any time by the original donor or by others, such as family members, friends or employees. These investment funds also grow as a subset of the total endowment and the Family Funds are usually recognized on our Annual Report.  
  • Agency Fund - this is a type of designated fund established by charitable organizations to ensure a continual source of annual income for their programs and operations. 
  • Donor Advised Fund - this funds allow donors to be actively involved with the Foundation in selecting recipient charitable organizations.
  • Scholarship or Bursary Fund - a fund can be established to honor a loved one, in the name of a family, an individual, business or organization in order to help deserving individuals obtain education or training. 

Sustaining Partners 

Our Sustaining Partners support the work of the Foundation by contributing operating funds.  We greatly appreciate their support which then allow all of the community donations we receive to go directly to the endowment fund.  Sustaining Partners are recognized in all our promotional activities – our annual “Report to Community”, events, our website, and marketing with our local media partner, the Quesnel Cariboo Observer.
