Monthly Giving

Our new Monthly Gift Program offers an easy, secure and affordable way to show your support. Your gift will be automatically debited from your account each month and by the end of January, you will receive a cumulative tax receipt for your total gift amount. Simply notify us anytime if you wish to pause or stop your gift.

Staff Payroll Deduction

Payroll deduction is a convenient way for Ometz employees to contribute on a regular basis. For more information, call us at 514.342.0000 #3470 or email to have funds automatically deducted from your pay cheque.

Tribute Gifts

A Tribute Gift to Ometz offers a unique way to honour someone who is celebrating a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, bar or bat mitzvah, or as a thank you to show your appreciation. We will mail a personalized card on your behalf, informing them of your gift, along with a personalized sentiment (optional). To make a Tribute Gift, please fill out the form on the Donate page and click on the Tribute option at the bottom.

Wills and Planned Gifts

Through your Will or other planned gift, you can create your own personal legacy at Ometz. Both are charitable donations which can be arranged during your lifetime, but funds are available at a later date.

For more information on Wills and Planned Giving, please call 514.342.0000 #3470 or email.

Life Insurance Policy

This type of gift allows you to make a significant impact by designating Ometz as the full or partial beneficiary of your policy. You can also transfer ownership of an existing policy and benefit from significant tax savings. For more information on leaving a life insurance policy, please call 514.342.0000 #3470 or email.

Endowed Gifts

An Endowment is a gift given for Ometz’ permanent use, or use for a period of time.  Income will be distributed in accordance with Ometz’ income distribution policy.  A gift may establish a new endowment fund or augment an existing one. For more information on endowments, please call 514.342.0000 #3470 or email.

Gifts of Publicly Traded Securities

Did you know that making a gift of your appreciated public securities offers you significant tax benefits while supporting the meaningful work that Ometz does?

By transferring your shares, bonds or mutual funds to Ometz instead of selling them, you benefit from an exemption of the capital gains taxes you would normally pay. In addition, you receive a donation receipt equivalent to the entire value of the securities.

Ometz benefits from the full value of your donation. Your gift will help support and strengthen our community! To learn more on how to give securities, please call 514.342.0000 #3470 or email.
