We are proud to be a patron-powered festival, made possible largely because of the generosity and support of a community of individuals who share our vision for a diverse, inclusive and culturally-rich society. Patron donations make a profound difference to the festival’s success and touch the lives of artists and audiences alike. The festival depends on people like you who have felt the exhilarating power of our work and want others to experience it too.

Other ways to give

Donate Securities or Mutual Fund Shares

We accept donations of securities or mutual fund shares through our partner CanadaHelps. This is the most efficient way to give charitably since the capital gains tax does not apply. The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities. Capitals gains are the increase in the value of your securities over the price you paid at purchase. Your security or mutual fund donation means a larger donation for Indian Summer Festival. It also means a larger charitable tax receipt for you.

Donations of securities and mutual funds to the Indian Summer Arts Society can be made through our partner, CanadaHelps. Simply visit our page on the CanadaHelps website, click on the ‘Donate Securities’ tab and follow the prompts. CanadaHelps will automatically issue you with a full tax receipt for your donation on our behalf.
