“Planned Giving” means making a charitable gift in a way that maximizes your tax and estate benefits. Allowable gifts include cash, gifts in kind like stocks and real estate, and a right to a future payment such as life insurance proceeds. Your planned gift can be a “present gift” that NBBI uses now, or a “deferred gift, that is only available in the future, generally after your death.
You may want to consider giving to NBBI through a cash donation; gift in kind – stock or real estate; bequest under a will – RRSP, RRIF or capital property; insurance policy; or another option. At upcoming conferences, we will have people available to discuss these options and answer your questions. However, in the meantime, if you are interested in finding out more about Planned Giving, you can contact us by clicking here.
