Leaving a legacy gift
Leaving a legacy gift is the most efficient way to make a significant contribution to a charity and ease your future estate burden, without having to sacrifice your standard of living. The amount of your bequest is 100 percent 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. You can also give life insurance, securities or RRSPs to Habitat Canada to meet your estate-planning needs.
Gifts of stock and securities
By donating publicly traded securities, you can avoid the capital gains tax you would normally have to pay if you sold the securities and then donated the proceeds. Habitat Canada will issue 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.
Other major gifts
By donating a major gift you can make a significant impact on families in need of decent, affordable housing across Canada and around the world. Opportunities to direct your gift to specific Habitat programs or projects are available.
