Other Ways to Give
Name a charity as your beneficiary This is your simplest option: In your will, simply leave a bequest of money or a gift in kind (such as securities or artwork) to a recognized charity. Your estate will receive a charitable donation receipt that could reduce the income tax on your final return and perhaps the immediately preceding return as well.
Establish a Donor Advised Fund You will receive an immediate tax receipt for all contributions made to the fund while retaining the right to advise as to which charities are to receive your fund’s income.
Establish a Charitable Remainder Trust This irrevocable trust holds assets such as cash and mutual funds. The interest and dividends are paid to you as taxable income. At the time of your death, the trust assets – known as the “remainder” – go to your designated charity. When you establish the trust, you will receive a donation receipt for the ‘remainder interest’ of the trust.
Donate a life insurance policy while you live You will enjoy certain tax credits and your charity will receive the total death benefit under the policy.
Donate publicly funded stocks or securities You will get a tax receipt for their full value and will not pay tax on the capital gains of the donated securities.
Establish a Charitable Life Annuity Set up the annuity for yourself, or for you and your spouse, and receive a lifetime income from the assets. Much of the annuity cash flow is tax-free and you will get a charitable receipt for a portion of the donations based on the amount of annuity income you receive and your life expectancy.
Establish a Private Foundation When you make a substantial donation, establishing a foundation allows your name or family’s name to be permanently associated with the cause you’ve chosen.
