Supporting SYC

Supporting our work has never been so easy. There are many ways you can contribute to the work of SYC, from cash to corporate stock to a legacy gift. No matter what way you choose to give, your contribution has a huge impact on the future of the youth sustainability movement in Canada. 

Select one of the following to make your contribution:

Your gift, no matter how large or how small, makes a difference in our work. It allows us to broaden the scope of our work, engage as many youth as possible in sustainability and remain a financially stable and responsible organization. 

One-time cash contributions
Make a one-time cash contribution by credit card, cheque or money order (made payable to Sierra Youth Coalition). If you prefer a tax-receipt for your contribution, make your cheque or money order payable to the Sierra Club of Canada Foundation and write 'Sierra Youth Coalition' on the MEMO line.  To make a credit card donation, click here.

Join the Sustainers Circle
You can make a larger gift through smaller, monthly contributions by becoming a member of our Sustainers Circle. Members make a monthly contribution of $5, $10. $20 or more by credit card or through a chequing account. Your annual contribution has a huge impact! 

To make a monthly credit card donation, click here.  If you would like to make your monthly contribution through your chequing account, simply send your bank ID (3 digits), your transit number (5 digits) and your account number (varies by bank) to the Sierra Youth Coalition. We'll take care of the rest. Please indicate whether or not you want your gift to be tax-deductible.

Matching Gifts
Many companies and organizations have a matching gifts program which will match your contribution to charitable organizations. Click here for a list of companies that offer matching gifts. If your organization isn't listed, check with your HR or payroll administrator to confirm or chat with management about your gift and encourage a matching contribution. 

United Way Workplace Campaigns
Many workplaces support the "United Way" by payroll deductions. Did you know that you can make a direct contribution to SYC through these campaigns? Simply request a United Way donations form from your HR or payroll representative.  On the form, indicate that you wish to specifically direct your gift. Use the following charitable number: 11914 9789 RR0001 and indicate 'Sierra Club of Canada Foundation / Sierra Youth Coalition' on the form. Your contribution will get to us!

Corporate stocks
Did you know that as a stockholder, you can donate your stocks to SYC without paying capital gains taxes?  If you want to donate your gift of stock to a charitable entity, consider donating to Sierra Youth Coalition through the Sierra Club of Canada Foundation. Designating your gift to SYC through the foundation ensures our charitable work continues and that you receive a tax-receipt for your gift - and you won't pay the capital gains taxes! To make a gift of stock to SYC, contact the Sierra Club of Canada Foundation.  Please note: your contribution is subject to our corporate screening policy.

A planned gift is the greatest legacy you can leave behind after your passing. It ensures your favorite causes continue their great work. Making a planned gift is easy - simply talk to your estate planner and your family to discuss your plans. If you need wording for your will or to talk about a potential planned gift, contact us at 613-241-1615 or toll-free at 1-888-790-7393. We'll be happy to help.
