Plan a legacy gift
There are many types of legacy giving, and every gift is eligible for a tax credit for estate tax purposes.
- Charitable bequests can take many forms and often consist of cash, property and/or securities like stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
- Specific/legacy bequests designate an exact dollar amount, percentage or particular asset, such as the stock of a certain company, to be donated to Empowerment Squared.
- Making a gift of your retirement plan savings (RRSPs or RRIFs) can reduce the taxes on your estate and protect its value for your heirs. It also enables you to make a significant impact on your community, locally and internationally.
- A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to make a charitable contribution. With a donation of securities or mutual funds, capital gains tax does not apply, allowing you to give more and avoid paying capital gains taxes.
- A gift of life insurance allows you to make a significant donation to Empowerment Squared at a relatively low cost while protecting the value of your estate for your heirs and possibly saving on taxes.
We are committed to working with you, your family and your financial advisor to ensure your philanthropic and financial goals are met. If you have questions about making a planned gift to Empowerment Squared, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
