GIFTS OF CASH OR APPRECIATED PROPERTY
Your outright gift of cash or appreciated property will give you the immediate satisfaction of seeing your gift at work today. Simple, easy & much needed!
GIFTS OF PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITIES
One of the most tax-efficient ways to give to Thrive Alive Foundation, gifts of publicly-traded securities are eligible for regular tax credit and are fully exempt from capital gains tax. According to Canada Revenue Agency guidelines, the fair market value of publicly-traded securities is based on the closing market price on the day of receipt by Thrive Alive Foundation. The charitable tax receipt is based on this value.
GIFTS OF LIFE INSURANCE
A gift of life insurance may be made to support Thrive Alive Foundation in the following ways: 1) You establish a life insurance policy on your life and then transfer the ownership of the policy to Thrive Alive Foundation and also designate Thrive Alive Foundation as the registered beneficiary. You may pay the premiums as they become due, or you may pay off the policy through a one-time payment, or 2) You may sign over an existing policy to Thrive Alive Foundation and designate Thrive Alive Foundation as the beneficiary. If you surrender a policy to Thrive Alive Foundation, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the cash surrender value. If you make Thrive Alive Foundation owner of a policy, you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the premiums that you pay.
GIFTS OF RRSPs and RRIFs
Another simple and tax-effective way to support Thrive Alive Foundation is by making a gift of your RRSPs or RRIFs. Visit the institution holding your investments (RRSPs and RRIFs), ask them for a change of beneficiary form, and designate Thrive Alive Foundation as your new beneficiary.
