There are many ways to make a Legacy Gift.
Many people would like to help strenghten the long-term viability of Fred Victor, but feel they cannot afford to do so today. The advantages of making a bequest are:
Revocable - you can change the provisions in your Will or Trust at any time until death.
Charitable Gift Annuities
If you wish to make a significant charitable gift, but still require the income generated by your assets, you may want to consider a charitable gift annuity. This gift allows you to support Fred Victor, while receiving a guaranteed annual income for life.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Life Insurance is an economical way to give a larger and more lasting gift to Fred Victor. If structued correctly, your gift will not be included in the value of your estate and therefore, you will avoid probate fees.
By designating Fred Victor as the beneficiary of remaining RRSPs and RRIFs, the asset is transferred directly from the financial institution to Fred Victor and the estate receives a tax credit to offset the tax on income. Since the asset passes outside the estate, no probate fees are payable, which results in further savings to the estate.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A charitable remainder trust is a deferred giving arrangement under which you may transfer property (cash, securities, or real estate) to a trustee. You (and/or your beneficiaries) retain the right to the income from the trust either for life or for a specified number of years. Fred Victor receives whatever remains in the trust after the specified term, or after the death of the last beneficiary.
Host a Fundraising Event or a Fred Victor Speaker
Volunteers work tirelessly each year to organize a variety of fundraising events that benefit Fred Victor.
One year a bake sale at Royal York United Church helped send a busload of women for a special day in Niagara Falls. From garage sales in your neighbourhood, to dinners, school fundraisers and fun runs, we have been the fortunate recipients of dollars raised by our community friends. If you would like to host an event and need support with materials, ideas and/or a speaker from Fred Victor, we are more than happy to lend a hand and a voice.
Please give us a call and let us know the event idea and your needs. Please contact Dagmar Schroeder at 416 364-8228 ext. 1384 or email email@example.com.
