After your family and loved ones are taken care of, if you can, please consider leaving a legacy gift to Embrave in any of the following ways:
There are several ways to make contributions through your will. You can instruct your lawyer to include “Embrave Agency to End Violence” (our legal name) in your will.
These are two examples of wording. For a residual bequest:
“I give to Embrave Agency to End Violence currently of P.O. Box 45070, Mississauga, Ontario, L5G 1C9 all (or _______ %) of the residue of my estate, to be used at the discretion of the organization.”
For a specific bequest (a specified dollar amount):
“I give to Embrave Agency to End Violence currently of P.O. Box 45070, Mississauga, Ontario, L5G 1C9, the sum of $ _______ to be used at the discretion of the organization.”
The flexibility of life insurance makes it possible for virtually everyone to make a meaningful gift. You could:
Give a Percentage of your Life insurance policy to ‘Embrave Agency to End Violence’
Give a Paid-Up Policy: Most people own life insurance, and many have policies that have outlived their original purpose. For instance, policies for a college education, those insuring a business, or those protecting a mortgage, can make excellent gifts when given to a charitable organization. The donor can deduct the replacement value of the policy.
Buy a New Policy: Some people find they can make a much larger gift than they could otherwise afford by purchasing a life insurance policy and naming Embrave Agency to End Violence as owner and beneficiary. The future premiums paid are deductible as cash contributions.
Buy Insurance to Replace a Bequest: Some people find they can make a current gift of assets they had planned to bequeath in their wills. They receive the income-tax benefits now and replace the assets by buying a life insurance policy for that amount. They enjoy the satisfaction of giving now and receiving the tax deduction now when they need it most. The beneficiaries will still receive the same amount.
Add a Beneficiary: Regardless of financial circumstances, almost anyone can name Embrave Agency to End Violence as a secondary or final beneficiary of a new or existing policy. This simply means that if the first beneficiary(ies) predeceases you, our organization becomes the beneficiary. Because the gift is not definite, there are no income tax benefits; but, if any funds do finally go to Embrave Agency to End Violence, they will be deductible from taxes.
Donating unused or excess assets in an RRSP, RRIF or TFSA to Embrave Agency to End Violence can enable you to realize an immediate impact without triggering the tax, provided that the donation is carefully planned.
Please connect with your financial advisor to explore how your financial assets can unlock a legacy of care and support for survivors of gender-based violence today and in the future!
Please consider making a gift of real estate. Embrave Agency to End Violence is the second largest emergency shelter in Ontario and will ensure these assets serve our communities and survivors in their path to safety.
The needs of communities across Peel Region for safe, emergency shelter are greater than ever. Please contact Julie Shultz to explore how we can work together to build your legacy with gifts of real estate and property.
