Leaving a Legacy Through Planned Giving
Most of us would like to be remembered for making a significant contribution to the life of our community. Whether we have lived in Clinton and surrounding area more recently or for our entire lives, it is the people around us who have brought us joy and purpose. When planning our estates, it seems fitting to put something back into the community which has nurtured us.
A planned gift to the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation is one way to show your appreciation and contribute to the health and well-being of your family. Planned Giving is the process of making arrangements now to provide a donation in the future. With a little careful thought and sound advice, you can make a gift which will benefit your community and have a positive impact on the tax status of your estate. Planned Giving can provide you with immediate or delayed tax relief, and you can help reduce the amount of income tax paid by you or your estate.
Bequest in Your Will
Remembering the Clinton Public Hospital in your Will is simple and straight forward, as well as a very generous gesture. You may include the Foundation as a beneficiary by either adding an amendment to your existing Will through codicil or by drawing up a new will, specifying an amount of cash, property or securities to be left to the Foundation. You can also choose to leave a residuary bequest, which is the amount remaining in your estate after all other gifts have been distributed. Planning your Will makes certain that your loved ones and causes or institutions you care about will be provided for. Your lawyer can help you structure a Will to meet and define your wishes.
Please let us know of your bequest and wishes, should you choose to name our Foundation as a beneficiary. We would like to have an opportunity to thank you personally for your generosity. The legal name to include in your Will is “Clinton Public Hospital Foundation” and the CRA business number is BN89096 0685 RR001.
You can name the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy and receive income tax receipts for the premiums paid on the policy. You may also assign paid-up life insurance policies to the Foundation and receive a tax benefit.
Your insurance advisor or financial advisor will be able to direct you on all the aspects of the use of life insurance policies for charitable giving. The value of a life insurance policy that has been assigned is not considered as part of an estate for valuation purposes and is, therefore, not included for probate or probate taxes, but may be used to offset taxes payable upon death.
Before you cancel any life insurance policy, whether it is a term or permanent policy, please contact Foundation Office to see if there is a no cost tax benefit to you.
Perhaps you have numerous charities that you would like to have benefit from the wealth you’ve created or you have a tax situation this year or upon death. We have solutions to easily create and manage a private foundation which can give donors the ability to fund their preferred charities to meet immediate needs, as well as create a long term funding base to support charitable programs each year. Contact the foundation for more information.
If you’ve held a particular security for a long time and you require tax relief, please contact the foundation before selling your securities to discuss tax benefits.
