There are different ways to set aside a portion of your assets to benefit both you and the Society. Each method can be individually designed to meet your financial and personal needs. Some methods provide a tax receipt immediately, while others provide future benefits to your estate.


Your legacy can take many forms:


Bequests: Make a gift to the Society through your will.

Life insurance: Use an unneeded policy or create a new policy to make a donation.

Charitable gift annuities: A charitable gift annuity allows you to make a gift today while guaranteeing you a fixed income for life.

Publicly traded securities: Donate appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or stock options and take advantage of the greatest tax benefits.

Registered investments: You can easily designate all or some of these funds by signing a pre-printed form at your financial institution.

Endowments: An endowment can create a lasting legacy to continue your tradition of annual gifts to the Society.

Charitable remainder trusts and gifts of residual interest: You can receive immediate tax savings and continue to receive income from a trust or the use of property, such as real estate, for the rest of your life
