Planned giving is a great way to make a lasting impact on reducing local hunger in our community. It’s a gift that lasts beyond the donor’s lifetime, and can provide significant tax benefits.
Our planned giving program allows you to make a gift through life insurance, securities, or a bequest. Take a look at the different options below, and contact us to learn more.
The Gift of a Bequest
Naming the Ottawa Food Bank as a beneficiary in your will allows you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible and bequest provides charitable tax credits for your estate.
The Gift of Life Insurance
The Ottawa Food Bank can be the beneficiary of a life insurance policy with the benefits of that policy going directly to the Ottawa Food Bank upon death. This arrangement ensures that the proceeds do not pass through your estate, thereby circumventing probate. This entitles your estate to the tax benefit.
