Transformational Gifts

At The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, we define Transformational Gifts as philanthropic “investments” of $50,000 or more.  Gifts of this size ensure financial security for the future and help to transform research into patient care that has tangible impact. Transformational Gifts may be directed to one of our defined fundraising priority areas, or given to The Princess Margaret’s Highest Priorities.  Donations can be remitted in one lump sum or pledged over a period of time and, typically, gifts are eligible for a full tax receipt.  Some transformational gifts come in the form of a deferred or “planned” gift (most often a bequest that someone has left us in his/her Will). 
The Major and Estate Giving Team supports donors who are interested in making transformational gifts, whether that is a current or deferred gift.  We have an extremely knowledgeable group of professional fundraisers (Campaign Directors) and an excellent team who provide stewardship to past donors (showing them the impact of their donations) and help future donors match their interests with the highest needs of The Princess Margaret.  As you will see below, each person has a specific area of expertise, and we are all here to provide help and assistance to all our generous supporters.
