The Ministry to Seafarers (M2S)

Donate

If you share our passion for the men and women of the sea, please consider helping M2S help them with your donation.
M2S receives no government funding and relies on the donations of supporters to help continue our mission here in the Port of Montreal and digitally, around the world. Thank you for your generosity!

Planned Giving: An Epilogue to the Story of Your Life

How would you like to be remembered? With a little thought and planning, you can leave a legacy that will outlast you!

M2S partners with Christian Stewardship Services (CSS) for the purposes of growth, not only for today, but also for tomorrow. CSS can assist you in your planning by taking a look at your financial portfolio and determining the most beneficial way to give. For example:
Donor Advised Fund 
Perhaps you have in mind an amount you'd like to donate to charity but you still need time to figure out which causes to give to. With a Donor Advised Fund, you can make one donation now and get a tax receipt right away, but take your time deciding which charities will benefit from your generosity.
Appreciated Securities
Did you know you can donate stocks or mutual funds all while saving taxes? Since 2006, Canada’s federal government has allowed for tax incentives that make it beneficial for you to donate stocks or mutual funds instead of cash. If your securities have increased in value, at the time of sale you will generate a capital gains tax. But, by donating these stocks or mutual funds directly to a charity, you eliminate the capital gains tax and you will get a tax-deductible receipt for the full market value of your stocks/mutual funds. Eligible securities are publicly-traded stocks (including Canadian and US stocks) or mutual funds.  
You can find out more about CSS, what they do and how you can use their services by visiting their website. If you have any questions regarding our financial needs or stewardship, please feel free to contact us.
Before making any gifts of securities, talk to your personal Financial Advisor. If you do not have one, contact CSS for a free consultation.
The Ministry to Seafarers of the CRC (M2S) is audited annually by an independent public accounting form and our financial statements are available upon request. Spending of funds is confined to M2S approved programs and projects. Each contribution directed toward an approved program or project will be used as restricted with the understanding that when the need for such a program or project has been met, or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by M2S, the remaining restricted contributions will be used where most needed.
NOTE: Canadian gifts are tax deductible and you will receive a tax receipt. When making a donation via CSS, CanadaHelps or the PayPal Giving Fund, you will receive a tax receipt from them, not from M2S.
