The types of Planned Gifts include the following: Bequests under a Will, Endowments / Legacies, Insurance Policies, Charitable Gift Annuities, Gifts in Kind such as stocks, bonds or real property.
Types of Planned Gifts
The following information is general in nature and is meant to provide a brief overview of giving options. We encourage you to consult your own legal and financial counsel in the development of your own financial or estate plan.
Making a specific gift to a charity can be done through your will, or can be done by writing an amendment called a Codicil to your existing will, specifying either a percentage or specific dollar amount. You can bequest a portion of your estate and still provide for your family and loved ones.
As a donor you may be interested in establishing an endowment fund so that the gift that you contribute remains intact as a lasting legacy. You can designate the income produced by investing the endowment to support a specific program at The Pines. This fund may be named in honour or in tribute of yourself, your family or business or a loved one.
A gift of life insurance allows you to make a substantial gift to the Fund in the future by paying a relatively low premium payment today. New and exiting policies can be transferred to The Pines.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A gift annuity produces guaranteed payments for you for a lifetime. A portion of the sum you contribute will immediately support the Fund.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
You can make a gift of investments without forfeiting the income produced from those investments by setting up a charitable trust.
Gifts in Kind
These are donations that have tangible dollar value, for example real estate, stocks, bonds, equipment or art. When a Gift in Kind is accepted by The Fund, the fair market value of the gift is assessed by a qualified party. Based on this evaluation, the donor receives a charitable income tax receipt for the appraised value of the asset.
