How You Can Help

You can use E-transfer via your online banking. You just set up a new Payee called Nanoose Community Services or NCS and the email is:
Your bank transfer system will walk you through the amount of the payment etc. Set up the security question as: “what is my last name” and the answer will be the donor’s last name;
In the message box, you could indicate the NCS program of choice (ie. food, emergency, ‘Elf’) and the donation will be directed to that use.
Donate by Mail
CHEQUE: Please include your email as well as a snail-mail address for a tax-deductible receipt and send to:

The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities.
When you sell your shares for cash, you’re responsible for the tax due on the gain, even if you plan to donate the proceeds from the sale. But when you donate your securities to NCS through CanadaHelps, those capital gains aren’t subject to tax.
