Planned Giving

Your Share the Warmth Legacy

Leave a legacy. Continue your passion of helping the community with a planned gift.

Whether through a will, life insurance policy, or other means, your planned gift will help us secure a brighter future for generations to come.

A planned gift is a charitable donation arranged through your will or life insurance. These donations serve a host of purposes both for yourself and for our organization. A planned gift can give you or your Estate income tax deductions but also help you meet your personal goals for charitable giving. For Share the Warmth, these types of donations help us plan the future and leave lasting traces for the people the organization supports. We never share your personal information and we respect the privacy of our donors.

You might choose to leave a legacy for one of our key program areas, for example:

These programs support children all through their childhood and into young adulthood. Or, you might choose to make your gift even more specific, for example to:

The School Food Program, which feeds 1,700 youth per week in 2o schools and ensures no child comes to school hungry.

Whatever you choose, Share the Warmth will honour your legacy wish.

Will bequests – these types of gifts are made through a Will and can include gifts of cash, stocks, bonds RRSP, RRIF etc. These types of gifts receive a donation receipt for the full amount of the gift and reduce or eliminate the tax payable on the final income tax returns

Life Insurance – these types of gifts are the easiest to make as you can designate Share the Warmth as your beneficiary or surrender an existing policy to the organization. These may also provide you with tax benefits under miscellaneous rules.
