Planned giving through United Way offers you an unparalleled opportunity to have an impact on issues today, while creating systemic solutions for tomorrow.
GIFTS FOR TODAY
Leaving a gift for today ensures issues that are important to you have support over the long term.
Cash Gifts: Make a gift of cash to see your generosity in action to receive immediate tax benefits.
Gifts of Securities: Giving appreciated securities is one of the most cost- and tax-effective ways to make a major impact on the issues you care about.
GIFTS FOR TOMORROW
Leaving a gift for tomorrow provides you with the opportunity to create lasting impact and longterm solutions by helping future generations in our community.
Bequests: Designate a specific gift or a portion of your estate to the Tomorrow Fund and your estate will receive an official tax receipt.
Life Insurance: Life insurance is an affordable option that allows you to make an extraordinary gift to your community. You can transfer ownership of a new or existing policy, or you can make United Way a full or partial beneficiary of a policy you continue to own.
Retirement Plans: You can designate United Way as a beneficiary of your RRSPs or RRIFs, or even a TFSA. Your gift qualifies for an official tax receipt and can offset tax payable on other assets of your estate.
