No matter the size of your estate, you can arrange to leave a charitable gift. Professionals such as your accountant, lawyer, financial planner, or life insurance expert can tell you about the tax benefits of planned gifts.
We ensure donor designated funds are administered in accordance with donor specifications.
Leaving a legacy donation to charity
HOPE is where you leave it, so it can continue on.
Planning for the inevitable can sometimes be difficult. Presently, you can leave a charitable gift in so many different ways. Leaving a legacy donation to a charity ensures our work will continue, and students will be taken care of for generations to come.
Speak to your lawyer about drafting or revising your will to include the appropriate wording. Then, please contact us to let us know about your gift so we can thank you and, if you would like, recognize you in our publications and as a member of our Legacy Circle. If you wish, you can give anonymously and not be named in Foundation communications.
Gifting through life insurance can be done by:
When the Education Foundation of Niagara is named as a partial or full beneficiary of your RRSP of RRIF, a charitable receipt can be applied for up to 100% of net income in the year of death and the preceding year.
Gifts of publicly traded stocks and securities provide you with a tax receipt determined by the fair market value on the date received. And should there be a capital gain, there will be no capital gains tax payable.
To learn more, always feel free to contact our Executive Director Laura Byers at [email protected] or 905.641.2929 x37711. She can refer you to a qualified professional who will help you clarify your personal and family values and objectives. The process is free and 100% confidential. No information will be shared without your permission and authorization.
Our vision is a community where every student has access to all of the enriching opportunities school life offers.
