Gifts of Securities: 

Giving the gift of publicly traded shares, bonds or mutual funds is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to support HomeFront. Making a gift of securities provides significant tax saving incentives, because it removes the capital gains tax you would incur if you were to sell the assets and donate them. You will receive a tax receipt for thefair market value of the securities at the time we receive them.  

Bequests: 

A bequest is a specified gift in your Will – it is one of the easiest and most common ways to leave a gift while reducingestate taxes. Bequests can be directed to an area of your choice or left unrestricted to allow HomeFront to apply it to the area of greatest need. You can allocate a certain sum of money, a particular asset, or a portion of your estate.  

Making a bequest is easy and you do not need to re-write an existing will to add a charitable gift. Ask your advisor about the simple process of adding a codicil to your will. 

Your financial advisor or estate planner can help significantly reduce the taxes on your estate, leaving more for your loved ones and charities. We are happy to work with you and/or your advisor to ensure your wishes are met. 

Life Insurance 

Life insurance is another option for planned giving that can allow you to make a meaningful gift to HomeFront. You can name HomeFront as a full or partial beneficiary on a life insurance policy that you own or transfer the ownership of a new or existing policy.  

Retirement Plans 

You can designate HomeFront as a beneficiary of your RRSPs or RRIFs, or even a TFSA. Your gift qualifies for an official tax receipt and can offset tax payable on other assets of your estate. 

We recognize many people will seek the important work of professional advisors, lawyers and trust officers. Please see HomeFront’s information below should you require this to provide to the professionals you are working with:
