Other Ways to Support

One-time or Monthly Donations

Every donation can help to develop programs that broaden Canada’s ties with Asia and expand Canadians’ awareness of the dynamic and sweeping changes that continue to reshape the region. Become a monthly donor to the Foundation and make a difference year-round! It’s easy to sign up, change the donation amount, or cancel at any time.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship is a significant way to increase your corporate profile. With a broad range of activities that reach diverse audiences, the Foundation provides many sponsorship and corporate partnership opportunities throughout the year, including roundtable discussions, special events, projects and publications.

Gift of Securities

A gift of publicly traded securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) can be an advantageous way to make a donation to the Foundation. In the 2006 budget, the Federal Government announced that Canadians who donate publicly traded securities to registered charities will not be required to pay capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the shares’ value.
