A planned gift is a special gift for the future. It is arranged now, usually within an individual's estate or financial plan, but actualized at a later date. You can make a planned gift through:
Bequest A bequest is a gift stipulated in an individual's will, usually in the form of personal or real property.
Life Insurance This gift can refer to any of three different types of life insurance policies:
• a new, irrevocable policy;
• an irrevocable paid-up policy;
• or an existing policy on which premiums are still owed.
In all cases, the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada (CHFC) must be named as owner and beneficiary. Premiums are paid either to the insurance company or to the Foundation and are tax deductible.
Gift Plus Annuity The Gift Plus Annuity is a legal contract that enables the Canadian Cardiac Rehabilitation Foundation to purchase a lifetime annuity on behalf of a donor. The balance of the contribution becomes the donor's gift to the Foundation.
Gifts of Residual Interest A gift of residual interest is usually encountered when a donor wishes to make an irrevocable gift of property -- such as a residence or a gift of art -- while retaining life interest (the use and enjoyment of the property, for the remainder of the donor's life).
The Charitable Remainder Trust A Charitable Remainder Trust is funded with income-producing assets (cash, securities, or real estate). The income is paid, for life, to the individual beneficiary or donor and the principal is donated to the Canadian Cardiac Rehabilitation Foundation upon his or her death
