Planned (Legacy) Giving

  • The act of giving, in life or in death, says something about us. It is a reflection of who we are and what we believe in. Planned giving is a way to ensure your beliefs live on and your hopes for the future are realized in your absence. Planned gifts provide an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.
  • Planned gifts are a specific type of donation in which the donor benefits immediately and the charity benefits either at the time of the donation or in the future. For those who wish to take comfort in knowing that their gifts are being put to use right away, there are planned giving options that will benefit the Foundation without delay.
  • How you leave your legacy is entirely up to you. Financial advisors can help you to develop a plan suited to your needs: a plan that ensures the well-being of you and your family, maximizes your tax benefits, makes a difference to the health centres in your community, and puts your dollars to work within the boundaries of Vulcan County!
