A planned gift is a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date.
Commonly donated through a will or a life insurance policy.
Making a bequest (Cash or Securities) to Food4Kids Guelph in your will is a simple way of leaving a legacy, small or large, that has no financial impact on your current financial situation.
Adding a codicil or preparing a will need not be difficult or expensive. Your estate will receive the tax benefit of a donation receipt for the full value of your bequest.
By taking out a new life insurance policy, and naming Food4Kids Guelph as owner and beneficiary, you will receive tax receipts for the annual premiums you pay.
