The decision to make an enduring legacy gift is personal. It is a commitment to the future and a means to ensure your support continues in perpetuity.
There are many options available to you as a donor.
The same caring which motivates people to give their time, talents and money to charities or causes they have supported during their lifetime also motivates people at any economic level to leave bequests to those same causes in their Will.
A gift made now or later through a bequest doesn’t have to be large to play an important role in the help United Way provides in your community.
Your first consideration must always be to provide for loved ones, whether family or special friends. And, as you have supported the community through United Way for years, you need not forget us when making your Will.
Gift of Property
Donating property is one way to use what you already own to make a significant contribution to United Way of the Alberta Capital Region and create impact in your community. There are a number of ways to donate property, and each provides different tax benefits and has various levels of flexibility.
Gift of Trust
Broadly defined, a Charitable Remainder Trust is any trust where all or a portion of the remaining trust assets are distributed to a charity at the termination of the trust.
Charitable remainder trusts are an important gift planning vehicle being suggested to individuals by lawyers, trust officers and financial planners
Gift of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance is a way to make a significant gift in the future while receiving tax benefits today. You can give United Way of the Alberta Capital Region ownership of a new policy, a paid-up policy, or a policy on which premiums remain to be paid.
