Leave a Legacy in Your Community
By making the plan to include OUTSaskatoon in your Will or estate plan, you can make a valuable impact on Saskatoon’s LGBTTI community. Your charitable gift helps to honour your memory and will be used according to your wishes.
Legacy giving is also a way to secure tax benefits, while ensuring that your assets will benefit the community for years to come.
Bequest—a charitable bequest is one of simplest ways to leave your legacy to OUTSaskatoon. You can name OUTSaskatoon as a beneficiary in your Will, leaving a dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a specific asset to be used in support of our programs and services.
Shares—if you own appreciated shares, you may want to gift these to OUTSaskatoon. A donation of publicly listed stocks, bonds, mutual funds or shares acts like a cash gift and provide considerable tax benefits.
RRSP, RRIF, or Life Insurance—By naming OUTSaskatoon as the beneficiary on your Life Insurance plan, your RRSP, or RRIF, you can avoid a large portion of income tax on the final tax return. The funds help us and the tax break benefits your estate and other named beneficiaries.
Gifts in Kind—OUTSaskatoon accepts all types of in-kind donations including works of art, collectibles, equipment or furniture. We can sell items and use the cash to support our programs, or use the items to enhance our centre.
Endowment Fund—OUTSaskatoon is also interested in working with you to set up an endowment fund if so desired. An endowment fund is a way for you to make a donation for a specific purpose such as a bursary, scholarship, or recurring program enacted in your name. Endowments can be set up at any time and require a minimum gift of $5,000.
