Building Blocks to Success – Monthly Giving
It’s a convenient way to pledge your support to Parents and Children Together Resource Centre and provide us with stable, reliable funding every month. Monthly giving cuts down on our administrative costs, so we can put more of your gift to work where it matters most – providing support to the children and families within the Halifax Regional Municipality who reach out to us for support.
Eg. A $10.00 monthly donation allows us to provide childcare during our parenting workshops, so that parents can focus on parenting skill development and children stay safe.
Gifts in-kind are welcomed based on our organization’s needs at the time you wish to give.
If you wish to make an in-kind gift, please see our wish list on the right for a list of current needs. While there may be a need in the future, if your desired donation is not on this list, unfortunately we do not have the resources to transport and store your generous donation.

Legacy Gifts to PACT
There are also ways that you can make a donation to leave a Legacy Gift to PACT. This type of donation can be given now or in the future and can provide you with the opportunity to establish a personal legacy.
A bequest, the most common type of future gift, is a commitment made through your Will to be distributed by your estate upon your death. A bequest may be a specific piece of property, sum of money, or a portion of your estate. Most people make a bequest when their Wills are drawn.
Now more than ever, it is attractive to donors to gift publicly traded securities to charities. You can now give stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, as well as futures and options without paying the capital gains tax. To make a gift of securities to Parents and Children Together, please download our Securities Transfer Form and discuss these personal options with your financial planner.
RRSPs and RRIFs
It is now easier to donate the proceeds of your Registered Retirement Saving Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs) to a designated charity like PACT. Simply change the beneficiary information on the plan document and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change.
