The Toronto Jewish Film Foundation is an independent charitable organization dedicated to using the power of film to connect, engage and inspire audiences with unique and varied stories of Jewish life, history and culture in Canada and around the world. Our annual spring Festival is Canada’s largest Jewish cultural event.
The Foundation relies on support from public funders, foundations, corporate sponsorships and individuals to deliver quality Jewish-content programming. Your donation helps to:
Cover rental costs of films and theatre venues
Maintain affordable ticket pricing and provide free programs
Bring filmmakers, producers and scholars to participate on panels and post-screening Q&As
Engage the next generation with free student admission during the Festival
Provide free, nationwide online archive J-Flix to over 170 past Festival titles that explore and celebrate the diversity of Jewish culture
All gifts of $18 or greater made by cash, cheque or credit card are accompanied by a charitable tax receipt.
TAX PLANNING AND TJFF
There are many ways to donate to TJFF as a part of your larger financial and tax planning strategy. With your donation of qualifying securities such as publicly traded shares and mutual fund trust units, you avoid the capital gains tax on these appreciated securities, and you also receive a donation receipt for the fair market value of your donated shares. This tax credit can be used to reduce your income taxes in the year of your gift, or it can be carried forward for up to five additional years.
GIFT IN A WILL
A gift in your Will may specify a donation amount, a residual percentage of your estate or specific assets. This gift qualifies for a charitable tax receipt to reduce taxes payable by your estate in the year of your death.
RRSP, RRIF, TFSA
You can also designate TJFF as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or TFSA. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt to reduce taxes payable upon death.
GIFT OF A LIFE INSURANCE POLICY
Designate TJFF as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt at the time the benefit is paid out.
We are always happy to work with you and your advisors to maximize the impact of your gift as a part of your long-term financial plans.
