Nature Savings Plan

view details »

Through the Nature Savings Plan you will provide a monthly donation to Nature Saskatchewan. This is the most effective way to support the work we are doing. Make a commitment of whatever you can afford, for example $5, $7.50 or $10 a month.

Donations will automatically be deducted from your chequing account. You can choose either the 1st or the 15th of the month for this deduction. At the end of the year you will receive a tax receipt for your entire donation. The Nature Savings Plan is easy because you won't have to remember to donate and it saves time and cost for Nature Saskatchewan.

Other Things to Consider

  • You may wish to donate retirement savings plan assets (RSPs and RRIFs). Recent legislation now makes this option more convenient and can provide enhanced benefits. Talk to your financial advisor about your options.
  • Almost anything of value, such as real estate, art or listed securities can be donated for charitable purposes, now or through your will. Some gifts may receive enhanced tax benefits.

Ways to Donate
