What is a planned gift?
In the broadest sense, « planned gift » means any gift that has been the subject of financial, tax, or estate planning.
The Canadian Association of Gift Planners offers this definition:
A planned gift is the culmination of a charitable giving planning process, immediate or future, that reflects the donor’s philanthropic wishes and objectives and takes into account the donor’s personal, family, and fiscal context.
You can plan for any of the following forms of planned giving:
- Donation of a sum of money
- Donation of eligible securities (shares, bonds, and other securities)
- Donation of real estate and other gifts in kind
- The gift of coupon bonds
- A gift through life insurance (cash value)
Future or deferred donations
- The gift of a will
- The gift of life insurance (death benefit)
- Residual interest
Are you interested in making a planned donation? A legal or tax advisor (notary, lawyer, financial planner, accountant) will help you find the form of donation that suits your needs and those of your family.
