You can become a benefactor to Community Living Wallaceburg with relative ease. Your lifetime of diligence and hard work has given you certain assets. By choosing one of the options below you have the ability to turn some of your assets into gifts that will support the objectives of our agency and receive a direct financial benefit in return. For every planned gift made, there is a significant tax benefit for you, the donor.
We have selected seven options for your consideration:
- Charity of Choice
As individuals and families, we experience joyous occasions and time of loss. One way of expressing yourself is to direct your donation or those of others to Community Living Wallaceburg.
- Gift of Life Insurance
Assigning the agency as the benefactor of a life insurance policy is one of the most innovative and exciting means of contributing. A policy can be specifically designed with a modest premium that eventually provides a substantial gift. You may wish to take out a life insurance plan on yourself or your family with Community Living Wallaceburg as the beneficiary. You may also have a “paid-up” life insurance policy that you would like to give to the agency.
- Bequest in a Will
If you do not have a Will, you should consult your family and lawyer immediately and have one drawn up. Without a Will, your estate can be tied up in court and eroded by legal fees and taxes. Your Will may be used to leave a lump sum or a percentage of your estate to Community Living Wallaceburg.
- Gift of Property
Both residential and commercial property can be directly donated to the agency or used to fund a gift annuity.
- Bequest of Securities
Stocks, bonds, GICs, and securities can be donated to Community Living Wallaceburg. They are as good as cash gifts and you enjoy the same tax benefit.
- Gift of Annuity
An annuity gift is like an investment. You give a sum of money to the agency and receive a percentage of the money every year until you die. Any asset (money, RRSP proceeds, property, jewellery, works of art, guaranteed investment certificates) can be donated and turned into a gift annuity.
- Anderson Resource Library
Community Living Wallaceburg strives to maintain an extensive supply of current publications, videos/audio cassettes, articles, and other resource materials. These are available to the public and are often used to promote awareness and understanding of Community Living. A listing of our resources to contribute towards is available. An attractive certificate will be placed on the publication recognizing your generous gift.
