Arrange your donation today and feel good knowing your gift will help The Royal Conservatory tomorrow. You can support the work of The Conservatory, fulfill your charitable goals, and achieve the best tax savings possible by making a legacy gift or a planned gift. We invite you to leave a legacy and incorporate giving into your financial and estate planning.
Stocks and Securities
Did you know that by donating stock you can eliminate the capital gains tax and realize immediate tax savings? You receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities and you will not be subject to any capital gains tax. Making a gift of stock rather than selling the stock first, and donating the proceeds will also enable you to make a larger gift at a lower cost.
Many of our donors, alumni, and students are from the United States, and we are pleased to accommodate their tax filing requirements. The Conservatory accepts gifts from US-sourced income and provides tax receipts through our 501(c)(3) affiliate, Royal Conservatory of Music Foundation (United States).
Gifts of Instruments
We gratefully accept gifts of instruments to The Royal Conservatory of Music Instrument Bank.
Endowments are a meaningful way for donors to create a legacy of support for programs at The Royal Conservatory. When a donor establishes an endowed fund, the donation is invested and provides income to support a named scholarship, program or other operating activity of the donor’s choosing. The named endowment creates a lasting tribute to the person or organization being recognized.
Create a permanant legacy of support.
Fund for Excellence
Gifts made to the Fund for Excellence help to ensure that The Royal Conservatory can continue responding quickly to critical funding needs as they arise.
Giving to the Library
The Rupert Edwards Library is a valued resource for the RCM community. Gifts to the Library will support the development of our collection.
Support the RCM's piano technology facility and the group responsible for ensuring that each piano at the Conservatory functions to its fullest potential and speaks to its audience with fluidity and artistry.
