Q: Can I make a donation of goods or equipment (Gift-in-Kind) to the Bruyère Foundation?
A: Yes, donations "in kind" are welcome. Prior to accepting the gift, the Bruyère Foundation will make sure that one of our four sites has a need for the donation. If the donor requests a charitable income tax receipt for the donation, the goods will be evaluated by a third party and an income tax
receipt will be issued for the "fair market value". We are sorry but donations of clothing will not be accepted by the Bruyère Foundation.
