Multiyear pledges, single one-time or monthly gifts
For multi-year pledges or gifts over $5000, consider using our PDF Gift Form and sending by post, or contact us for options and/or discussion.
Gift of securities
Donate appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, flow-through shares or stock options and take advantage of tax benefits.
By donating publicly traded securities, you eliminate the capital gains tax that becomes payable if you were to sell the appreciated securities on the market. A tax receipt will be issued for the market value on date of transfer.
Life Insurance Policy
Pilgrims Hospice Society can be named as the beneficiary or owner of a life insurance policy, whether the policy is fully paid up or premium payments still remain. Making a gift of life insurance enables you to make a large future gift to hospice without financial impact during your lifetime. Various charitable tax deductions may also apply to gifts of this type.
RRSPs & RRIFs
One of the most tax effective ways to leave a legacy is by naming Pilgrims Hospice Society as a partial or full beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF. A charitable tax receipt can be applied up to 100% of net income in the year of death and the preceding tax year.
A charitable bequest is a simple way to leave a legacy gift with Pilgrims Hospice. The bequest will distribute your specific gift from your estate directly to Pilgrims Hospice.
