Planned Giving – The Heart of Dawson Creek Society for Community Living is you!

Planned giving, very simply, is gift planning. It is the assets accumulated, in one’s life, as opposed to current income. It is the process of making a gift at the right time for the right purpose, using the right method.

Bequests:

Make a gift of cash or property by including Dawson Creek Society for Community Living as a beneficiary in your Will. It’s one of the simplest planned gifts to arrange and it can significantly reduce the tax paid by your estate.

For more information, read our Guide to Making Charitable Gifts of Real Estate.

Life Insurance:

You can make a larger gift than you might expect possible by naming Dawson Creek Society for Community Living as the owner and beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. A gift of life insurance is separate from your estate and has no effect on its assets.

Securities:

If you are considering how to give to Dawson Creek Society for Community Living and if you own securities that have appreciated significantly in value, you can derive additional benefit by donating them directly to our charity rather than donating cash!

To encourage charitable giving, the federal government has eliminated tax on capital gains if you donate the shares to a charity. This tax break can substantially reduce the cost of your charitable donation and might enable you to give more than originally planned.
