Planned gifts are a powerful way for you to ensure the IEEE Canadian
Foundation has the future resources it needs to support the next generation
Planned gifts typically come from a donor's assets rather than income. These
gifts can either be outright or deferred. They enable you to integrate your
charitable objectives with your overall financial, tax, and estate plans to
maximize benefits to both you and the IEEE Canadian Foundation. These types
of gifts are part of your estate planning and should be made in consultation
with your lawyer, financial advisor, or insurance advisor.
Typical types of planned gifts include:
- Life Insurance - Name the IEEE Canadian Foundation as your
beneficiary or donate an existing policy that you no longer need
- Will or Trust Provision - Make a charitable bequest to the
IEEE Canadian Foundation in your will or living trust.
- Retirement Plan - Avoid "double taxation" by naming the IEEE
Canadian Foundation as beneficiary of your retirement plan.
