Sponsor a Festival Award or Screening

Sponsoring an award or screening at the Toronto or Ottawa LGBT Film Festival is a wonderful way to show your support for queer filmmakers and encourage the creation of new works from diverse LGBTQ+ voices. Sponsoring an award in honour or in memory of someone can also be an incredibly meaningful way to celebrate their courage, creativity, passion, and life. 

Want to support the upcoming 2020 30th Anniversary Festival and LGBTQ+ community programming by sponsoring an award or screening? Please contact us for more information at (416) 977-6847!

Gifts of securities are now the most tax-efficient way to make a charitable donation, thanks to the elimination of capital gains on donations of publicly-traded securities. You can donate stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Shares in private corporations and stock options are not eligible. You will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of your donation. You can make a gift of securities in three easy steps.

A charitable gift in your last will and testament, known as a bequest, can be in the form of a sum of money, a specific property, a percentage of the residue of your estate, a life insurance policy, an RRSP or a contingency gift. The tax credit resulting from a bequest can provide valuable tax savings to your estate. Making a gift through your will is a meaningful way to celebrate your legacy while making a lasting commitment to Inside Out and the Toronto LGBTQ+ community.

We would be very happy to discuss these options with you. Please call (416) 977-6847.

We also recommend that you speak with your financial and legal advisors when considering these types of gifts to ensure that your financial goals are considered, your tax situation is reviewed and your planned gift is tailored to your individual circumstances.

Many companies match the amounts that their employees contribute to charitable organizations and some even provide donations to organizations you volunteer at. In other words, if you donate $100 to Inside Out, your company will do the same – so your gift doubles! Please check with your human resources or finance department to confirm whether your employer has a matching gift or volunteer grants program.
