Planned Giving is a set of ways that you can leave money and/or assets to a nonprofit following your death.
This is also a way to invest money so that you receive benefits during your lifetime and subsequently bequeath remaining funds to the nonprofit. Making a planned gift to CANFAR is an excellent way to leave a legacy and to get us that much closer to a cure for HIV and AIDS. Before making a planned gift to us, we urge you to first discuss this with family members and your legal and financial advisors.
Gift of Securities
Your Gift of Securities that has appreciated in value and that you’ve owned for more than one year may provide you with a greater tax benefit than giving cash.
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you also avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You will save even more by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
Your broker or financial advisor can assist you in making a gift of publicly traded securities through a direct transfer to CANFAR. Please email Alex Filiatrault or 1-844-4-CANFAR (422-6327).
You can choose to leave a Lasting Gift to CANFAR as a planned gift in your will or through your life insurance policy. Please email Alex Filiatrault or 1-844-4-CANFAR (422-6327).
Ways to Give
