Life Insurance Giving
A gift of life insurance can provide a noteworthy future gift to the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation at a very reserved cost to you at the present time. You can make a gift such as this with your existing policy or a new one.
When you make the Foundation the owner and beneficiary of a new policy, you will receive a tax receipt for each premium you pay and then upon your death the proceeds would go to the Foundation.
Listed Securities Giving
Listed securities donated to a registered charity are no longer subject to capital gains tax. You can make a donation through the use of an electronic transfer however the Foundation suggests that you meet with your financial advisor before you proceed with donating securities.
Bequest by Will
This method of giving means that you can simply add a paragraph in your will where you bequest any amount or asset you own to the Foundation. This is a wonderful way of giving that provides a legacy in your name.
Charitable Remainder Trust
You may use many different assets to establish a Charitable Remainder Trust that will benefit you and/or your heirs for life. The remaining interest in the trust could be earmarked for the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation.
Charitable Lead Trust
A Charitable Lead Trust enables you to transfer assets to heirs with a lower tax burden. You may designate the KHCF to receive the benefits from the trust for a specific period of time before the assets go to designated heirs.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A Charitable Gift Annuity enables you to transfer cash or marketable securities to the Foundation. In return, you will receive fixed annual payments for life or a set period of time. You will be entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the year in which the lift annuity is created.
Many investors are beginning to realize that upon their death, unused CRA assets will be heavily taxed. In fact, it’s been estimated that estate and income taxes could consume anywhere from 60-80% of the money remaining in CRA assets. You can avoid income and estate tax on retirement accounts, by naming the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation as your partial or full beneficiary on retirement accounts.
