SECURITIES

  • We can provide you with a Gift of Securities form so you can easily transfer the shares you wish to gift.
  • Your gift is valued at the close of day value (fair market value) on the day they are received.
  • A tax receipt is issued for the fair market value of the transferred securities.
  • When you transfer shares ‘in-kind’ directly (versus selling the shares and giving the cash), the capital gains tax is eliminated.

A BEQUEST

  • Talk with your family about your plan to make a gift through your will and why it is important to you.
  • Meet with your trusted advisors to discuss how to fit the gift into your long-term financial plan and will.
  • Contact Heather to obtain wording choices for your will or to discuss the details.

CHARITABLE TRUST

  • Gift an asset like your house while you continue to live in your home on a life estate basis.
  • A tax receipt is issued today for a calculated future value of the house.
  • The Calgary Food Bank will take possession when you no longer need the house.

LIFE INSURANCE

There are two ways to give through life insurance:

  • Designate the Calgary Food Bank as a beneficiary of your policy. The tax receipt will help reduce estate taxes.
    By changing ownership of the policy to the Calgary Food Bank you will create a future legacy and receive an annual tax receipt for the premiums paid.
  • With a full life policy (fully paid) a tax receipt is issued for the cash surrender value of the policy at the time of the gift.

RETIREMENT FUNDS

There are two ways to give RRSPs:

  • Obtain consent from Canada Revenue Agency to donate RRSP or RRIF funds (or spousal RRSP) to a charity. Use the tax receipt on your next tax return.
  • Designate the Calgary Food Bank as the beneficiary and tax receipt will help reduce estate taxes.
For additional information, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website, ‘Giving to Charity – Information for Donors’.
