The Sovereign Order of St. John Victoria Commandery is a federally registered charity and all donations can be claimed as an income tax credit.There are several ways one can make a donation. 100% of donations go towards our effort to support Hospice and Homelessness initiatives.
Sovereign Order of St. John Victoria Commandery will be partnering with Canada Helps, a trusted payment processor specializing in charity donations. Donors will be able to make one-time donations or set up a scheduled monthly gift. Donors can designate their donations in honour or in memory of someone special and send a free e-card to notify the honouree. Further, donors can choose the payment option that works best for them: credit card, Interac or Paypal.
Large one-time contributions
Large contributions should be made directly to the Commandery. Gifts can include items such as cash, publicly traded securities, life insurance cash values, or life insurance death benefits. If you make a gift to a registered charity of life insurance proceeds by way of a bequest in your will or by naming the charity as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy owned by you, the amount eventually paid to the charity will be treated as a charitable donation in the year of your death and may be claimed (without limit) on your final personal tax return. You may also carry back any used credits to the preceding year.
We express the importance of checking first with your tax advisor before making any contribution to be sure that you will maximize the tax savings of the contribution to the charity. When you are ready to discuss your contribution, please contact us directly.
Donations in Kind
From time to time the Commandery receives generous donations of goods and materials to aid some of the charities that we work directly for: Victoria Hospice and Living Spaces. If you have an unusual donation that you think would be of use, please contact us directly.
All of our work is volunteer and we rely on many friends and relatives to help us. If you are interested in contributing time and energy to some of our great causes, please get in touch.
