In Memory of Loved Ones

Honor friends and loved ones by doing something special in their memory: make a donation to LDAC Canada, honoring those who are no longer with us.
Making a gift of cash or property by including a bequest to LDAC in your will is one of the simplest planned giving options, whether you are writing a new will or revising an existing one. When you make a donation through your will, your estate will receive considerable tax benefits, up to 100% of your annual net income, compared to 75% otherwise.*
You can make a larger gift than you might have thought possible by naming LDAC as a beneficiary to an existing policy, or you can transfer ownership and receive a tax credit for the cash surrender value. You may also make a gift arrangement of a new policy to LDAC as owner and beneficiary, after at least one premium payment in your own name. Transferring ownership of a life insurance policy also gives you immediate tax benefits while guaranteeing important funding for those we support through our work.
Gift-in-Kind/Property or Securities
You can give a gift of publicly traded stock or securities, support LDAC and eliminate the capital gain tax. Gifts of appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds, futures, and mutual fund units, give you tax relief within your lifetime while providing important resources to the LDAC. Donors of securities benefit from no taxes paid on capital gains donations verses 50% paid otherwise, making this kind of gift immediately attractive.
