How can I make a planned gift?
Planned gifts can be tailored to your personal and financial circumstances. A growing number of Canadians are realizing the benefits of giving through methods such as:
  • Charitable will bequests
  • Gifts of life insurance policies
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
Planned gifts allow you to:
  • Gain valuable credits on your final estate income tax return;
  • Enjoy current tax savings and secure a lifetime income for yourself and/or your spouse;
  • Establish a memorial fund in the name of a loved one;
  • Provide a significant legacy with a small current contribution;
  • Leave something truly meaningful for people to remember you by.
