Leaving a planned gift through bequests is the most efficient way to make a generous and significant contribution to a charity above and beyond contributions made during your lifetime and ease your future estate burden, without having to sacrifice your standard of living. The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate's tax burden.
Gifts of life insurance, securities or RRSPs to Habitat for Humanity Canada are also possible to meet your estate-planing needs.
Major Gifts and Stock Gifts
Gifts of Stock or Securities: By donating publicly traded securities, you can avoid capital gains tax that you would normally have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. Habitat will also issue you a charitable tax receipt for your donation. Securities can include stocks, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds, flow-through shares, and employee stock options. You can give now, or as part of your estate and will planning.
Major Gifts: By donating a major gift you have a significant families across Canada and internationally. Opportunities to direct your gift are available so you can invest in programs, areas and specific projects that are important to you.
