  • Listed SecuritiesOpen or Close

    Did you know that by donating publicly traded securities you can reduce your taxes and maximize your gift's importance? In order to encourage charitable donations, the 2006 federal budget eliminated the tax on capital gains for donation of publicly traded securities to charitable organizations such as the National Circus School Foundation.

    Learn more about our securities donation program here.

    To make a gift of securities, please download the procedures and securities transfer form.

  • Planned GivingOpen or Close

    To leave a legacy that reflects your core values without affecting your current financial situation, planned giving is an excellent option. In addition, you or your estate may be able to take advantage of attractive tax benefits.

    The donation can be made during your lifetime or after you pass away. There are several ways to make a planned gift:

    • Legacy: In cash, securities or real estate as a percentage of your estate or specific bequest
    • Life insurance: A great way to make a substantial donation
    • Other: Trust, RRSPs, RRIFs, etc.

    What is a planned gift?

    • It is a gift that is the subject of financial, tax and/or estate planning.
    • It may be made immediately or in the future
    • It reflects your philanthropic values and goals
    • It takes into account your personal or family fiscal situation

    Why a planned gift?

    • By conviction and to encourage the next generation of circus artists
    • To take concrete action that will outlive you
    • To show your commitment and gratitude to the National Circus School and the students

    How can I plan a gift?
    Before making a planned gift, it is important to:

    • Draw up your personal balance sheet
    • Consult a professional: notary, life insurance specialist, financial planner or lawyer
    • Inform the beneficiary organization and loved ones of your donation
  • Corporate Donations and SponsorshipsOpen or Close

    A corporate donation to the NCSF contributes to the development of our cultural life and confirms Montreal’s reputation and status as an international circus capital.

    Sponsor a show, special event or pre-selection tour, a great way to gain greater exposure to a targeted customer base. As a partner, you will receive recognition at our events and visibility through the School’s communications tools. Contact us! A visibility plan and personalized recognition can be customized as needed.

    Matching Gift Program: If your employer has a Matching Gift Program, you can double the impact of your gift. Contact your Human Resources Department for more details.

  • In-Kind DonationsOpen or Close

    The National Circus School Foundation can receive donations in-kind of heritage, documentary, educational or other value, that are consistent with the mission and objectives of the School and Foundation.

''The Foundation's assistance allows us to acquire the technical equipment that entails a large outlay of money for us as students. To all donors, thank you very much!''
