New Fundraising Software Can Make Canadians More Charitable

Web-based software, GIFTABULATOR®, will boost fundraising for Canada’s not-for-profits and help make Canadians more charitable.

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor TORONTO/ON/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2010) - Fundraising is a challenging business. With funding cuts and charitable donations falling below Canada's historic generosity levels, charities need to be more creative than ever. FUNDING matters®Inc. has designed web-based software, the GIFTABULATOR®, that will boost fundraising for Canada's not-for-profits and help make Canadians more charitable.

GIFTABULATOR® is a "gift calculator" enabling financial advisors and fundraisers to demonstrate how easy it is for individuals to grow and transfer their wealth.

GIFTABULATOR® shows individuals how to donate their taxable capital gains to a cause, a donor advised fund, or foundation without eroding their asset base.

"The GIFTABULATOR® makes it quick and easy for donors to calculate how to make a meaningful difference to their favoured charity and still look after their own finances," said Bill Petruck, President of FUNDING matters Inc. "The GIFTABULATOR® calculates the impact of the financial gift and visually demonstrates the immediate tax implications of giving versus making a bequest and how much is left for the heirs in the estate."

Don Cranston, Managing Partner of CGOV Asset Management, "The GIFTABULATOR® is an invaluable planning tool in assisting clients to understand the tax benefit that they can achieve through their donation. It's quick, easy to use, and provides clear visual depictions of financial outcomes."

Diane MacDonald, Executive Director of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners says, "It is expected that The GIFTABULATOR® will raise productivity, service and donation levels..." for Canadian charities.
