Donating Property Other than Cash (Gifts-in-Kind)

Gifts-in-kind, also referred to as in-kind donations are contributions of goods. Items such as books, artwork, gardening equipment and more can be given to RBG in exchange for a tax-receipt at fair market value or appraised value. Services can be donated by way of a cheque exchange. Semi-annually (in June and December), RBG reviews application and will contact interested parties who wish to donate items or services. If you have an item or a service you wish to donate, please review our gift-in-kind policy and compete our gift-in-kind form.
