Your opportunity to make a dramatic difference to the lives of women and children by leaving a lasting legacy.
There are a number of Planned Giving options besides cash such as gifts of securities, life insurance policies and more. You will want to speak with your lawyer or financial planner about what makes sense for you.
A Bequest From Your Estate Through Your Will:
Once you have determined your gifts to family and those closest to you, you may consider naming a charity recipient as a beneficiary in your Will to minimize the taxes your estate will pay and maximize impact of your donation. You will want to speak with your lawyer or financial planner about what makes sense for you.
However, it can also be as simple as adding wording to your Will such as:
“I give ($ or %) of my estate to The Denise House/Sedna Women’s Shelter & Support Services Inc, Oshawa, Ontario to provide funding for the ongoing activities of the organization as determined by the board of trustees. Tax ID 10796 5691 RR0001”
