By donating time, funds, or goods, you help empower people living in poverty to meet their own basic daily needs, participate in community, have sustainable livelihoods, feel hope for the future, and make plans for a prosperous life.

Here are unique ways to support
the programs and services Bissell offers.

 

Corporate Giving

We value the relationships we have with our partners. Corporate gifts provide renewed hope and the chance for a new life for someone in need.

To make a Corporate Gift, please contact Kelly Sysak 780.423.2285 ext. 114

Give Monthly

Monthly gifts are dependable funds that allow us to plan confidently for a successful future. More importantly the stability helps build long-term relationships with the people we’re helping, creating lasting change.

Gifts of Securities

A gift of securities is an excellent way to make an impact in our community while also providing you with significant tax savings. By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax you would otherwise have to pay. Your charitable tax receipt will reflect the value of the stock transferred as determined at the end of the trading day on the day the stock is received.

To transfer securities to Bissell Centre, please download and submit this form: Secutities Transfer Form (Updated Aug 22, 2017) [PDF]
