Legacy giving

Are you thinking about leaving a legacy for your community? Why not a leave a legacy of caring that would change many people's lives.

For gifts made to The Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan, Inc. through your will, your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt and may claim up to a maximum of 100% of income in the year of your passing.

There are many options on how to make a legacy gift. You may want the Foundation, for example, to receive all, or a portion, of whatever remains from your estate after debts, taxes, administrative expenses and specific bequests have been paid. Or perhaps your wish would be for the Foundation to receive all, or a share, of your estate only in the event that other beneficiaries have passed away by the time your will is read.

Your legacy gift can also take many forms, depending on what is right for you. You may choose to donate life insurance to the Foundation as a way to provide a significant gift at a relatively low cost. Or you may prefer to designate the Foundation as a beneficiary under your RRSP or RRIF, which can reduce the amount of income tax payable on these assets.

There are also charitable gift annuities, gifts of residual interest, and charitable remainder trusts that might work for you.

However you choose to give, we are committed to working with you, your family, executors and/or financial planners to ensure your charitable wishes are realized.
