Flow-through shares allow donors to purchase shares of Canadian resource companies and donate them to Branksome Hall, reducing their taxable income, and accelerating the development of resource projects in Canada.
The after-tax cost of giving is reduced to less than 10 per cent of the donation amount, often leading to transformational impact. See the chart below for an example.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.
