We need your ongoing support to continue to help the millions of Canadians who live with gastrointestinal disease and disorders and for those who want to maintain a healthy digestive tract. The GI Society guards donor dollars rigorously, ensuring maximum yield. Your donations help to support:

  • High-quality, up-to-date printed information and educational materials for patients and their families, and for healthcare professionals
  • BadGut® Lectures throughout Canada
  • Medical research
  • Advocacy – we use our informed influence to encourage governments to put digestive health on the political agenda and implement policies that will improve the lives of persons with gastrointestinal disease and disorders

Donate Securities or Mutual Fund Shares

You can donate publicly traded securities or mutual funds directly to the Gastrointestinal Society without incurring the tax. Capital gains on donated shares are not taxed. You will receive  a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities which will reduce taxes on other sources of income. Your security or mutual fund donation means a larger donation for the Gastrointestinal Society. It also means a larger charitable tax receipt for you.  Donate to the GI Society through CanadaHelps.org.
