A planned gift or legacy gift from your estate can provide the Boys and Girls Club of London with future financial assistance to ensure our programs and services continue to be accessible to everyone in our community.
There are also positive tax benefits involved in charitable giving that will work to enhance the value of your estate. There are a number of giving options available and each has different types of tax benefits.
Your will is an opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of children, youth, families, and seniors who rely on the Boys and Girls Club of London. This is the most common type of tax-smart gift in Canada. A simple provision in your will to leave some of your assets to the Boys and Girls Club of London Foundation will give you the assurance of knowing that you have made a difference in people’s lives.
A gift of publicly-traded, appreciated securities to the Boys and Girls Club of London Foundation qualifies for special benefits because of recent changes to income tax regulations. You enjoy seeing immediate results from your gift and realize immediate tax returns, eliminating capital gains tax. You can also include a gift of securities in your will and your estate benefits.
When you give a gift of a new or existing life insurance policy naming the Boys and Girls Club of London Foundation as the beneficiary you receive peace of mind in building a sizeable gift for the future with small premiums now. You will enjoy income tax credits during your lifetime or through your estate. You can also make the Club the beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF with the same benefits.
For more information or to discuss options further, be sure to speak with your professional advisor to develop a plan that works for you and your loved ones.
