You recognize the importance of the work of the James Bay Community Project and want to join others in providing a monthly gift. Thank you for choosing to make a sustained gift – your options include:

  • Cheque or pre-authorized debit: download and fill out the donation form. Please mail or drop off your completed form during operating hours with the reception desk staff. A charitable tax receipt will be sent to you at the end of the year.


Recent changes to the Income Tax Act have eliminated the income tax on capital gains generated from the sale of publicly listed securities, if those securities are donated to a registered charity prior to sale. Additionally, donors will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full market value of the securities, which can be used to further reduce income tax. Donating securities directly to the James Bay Community Project will provide the donor with a greater tax advantage than selling the securities and donating the cash directly. Please use this Canada Helps link to make a secure donation online:

There are so many creative ways that you may make a future gift using your accumulated resources or assets, rather than income. Life insurance policies, property and publicly listed securities are just some of the most common methods.  Please contact us today to find out how your Legacy Gift can benefit people in need now and for years to come.

It is always preferable to have independent, knowledgeable advice from legal and financial advisors when planning a substantial gift.  They may suggest options for saving taxes now by transferring ownership of property, publicly listed securities or a life insurance policy to a charity. Or, they may have recommendations for the best way for you to make a difference through leaving a bequest in your will.

Celebrate the life of a friend or loved one with a donation in his/her memory to support the work of the James Bay Community Project. Your gift will be acknowledged with a card to the family, and a thank you letter and charitable tax receipt to you.  Fill in the In Memoriam Form and submit it with your donation to James Bay Community Project.

Every time you shop at Thrifty Foods just load your smile card up with cash, credit or debit and then use it to pay for your shopping. 5% of your shopping cost comes back to JBCP as a donation. To pick up a card drop by the Project at 547 Michigan St. and ask for a card at reception.
