PLAN A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

Your estate will receive a tax receipt for the value of the gift, which can be used to offset tax otherwise payable. We would greatly appreciate being notified of a when you decide to make a planned gift in your will so that we can thank you appropriately.

Please contact the Foundation at 604-717-3372 for recommended wording to designate the funds to a specific project or for any other assistance.


RRSP/RRIF


Retirement funds are typically heavily taxed; however you can offset the burden by donating some of your RRSP or RRIF.

Simply designate your gift to the MV Crime Stoppers Foundation on your financial institutions beneficiary designation form. A tax receipt will be issued for 100% of the RRSP or RRIF value in the year of disbursement.


SECURITIES


The donation of securities instead of cash enables you to take full advantage of new legislation that makes gifts tax-free for you.

You will receive a tax receipt for the full value of the appreciated securities but will pay no tax on the growth of the securities. The tax receipt can be used to shelter other income by reducing the tax payable on capital gains. A gift of securities is also an effective way to dispose of publicly traded securities that have depreciated.


ENDOWMENTS


By establishing a fund where the capital remains intact, you can create a lasting legacy in the name of your family of loved one.

Annual interest earned can benefit a specific program that helps dying people and their families face the end of their lives with dignity, respect and the highest quality of care.


LIFE INSURANCE AND ANNUITIES


Turn an immediate smaller gift into a larger future one, by choosing life insurance to enhance your giving.

Smaller donations can be used to finance the annual premiums of a life insurance policy, which eventually will result in a much larger gift to the Foundation. Annual charitable tax receipts are issued for the value of the premiums paid. Alternatively, you may wish to leave an entire policy to the Foundation, enabling your estate to benefit from the tax receipt for a full value of the policy.

If you wish to combine your gift with an investment, an annuity is an excellent choice. This option results in a gift as well can often provide stable, higher after-tax income to the donor. As a donor, you will earn a charitable donation tax credit if the amount of the lump sum gift is greater than the market price of the annuity. Depending on circumstances, an annuity combined with life insurance may be an option.

To leave this legacy, the MV Crime Stoppers Foundation should be the named beneficiary. Please contact the Foundation at 604-717-3372 for further assistance.
