These are gifts created in a will and are generally made after a person has provided for their loved ones and other heirs.

Gifts made by will are deemed to have been made in the year of death. Therefore, the estate receives the charitable tax credit and can offset any tax owing.

A bequest gift may be for a fixed sum or for a specified amount of the residue of the estate after other specific bequests have been distributed.

Life insurance 

Giving a new or existing insurance policy allows anyone to make a sizeable gift with only a small annual or monthly outlay. In addition, there is a tax credit available for immediate tax relief. You will not reduce your family’s share of your assets by this form of giving, because you provide the funds through premium payments out of your current income.

There are many options to use life insurance as a future gift to the Canadian Council of the Blind. Ask us about how you wish to build the future.
