Ways to Give


Gift of Securities

Making a gift of securities, such as shares, stocks, and bonds, is an easy way to maximize your impact and save big on your taxes. By donating appreciated securities directly to TIFF rather than selling them, you avoid the capital gains tax that you would otherwise have to pay.

Planned and Legacy Giving

A gift to TIFF in your will is an investment in the future of film and the culture of our city. Your legacy gift will help transform the way people see the world through film for generations to come, and provide you with immediate or deferred tax benefits, customized to suit your personal goals.

Contact us to learn more or to assist you or your professional advisor on a confidential basis.


Cinema Seat Dedication

Dedicating a seat in one of our cinemas is a perfect way to celebrate and honour your family, friends, or business, or the memory of a loved one. It’s a great gift for anyone who loves cinema and believes in the power of film. Plus for the first time, we’ve opened up seat dedications in Cinema 5. Include both your favourite film in your dedication and share your love of film.

Tribute Giving

From nervous first dates at the movies to family film nights around a bowl of popcorn, movie magic helps shape so many of our most important relationships. A gift in honour or in memory of a loved one is an especially meaningful way to pay tribute to those moments. Contact us today for more information.
