Gifts to the CPAA
Donation in Honour/Celebration
Make a donation in honour of someone special in recognition of a special occasion, such as a birthday, graduation, anniversary or wedding. The CPAA will send a letter on your behalf acknowledging your thoughtful donation.
Donation in Memory
An In Memoriam donation is a meaningful way for friends and relatives to remember someone special. Once your donation is received, a card of condolence will be mailed to the next of kin you wish notified.
Monthly Giving Program
The CPAA offers an easy method to create a Life without Limits today and tomorrow without having to write cheques regularly or respond to appeals by mail. Our monthly giving program is a safe, secure way to give year-round to the CPAA. By signing up, you allow the CPAA to withdraw a pre-authorized donation from your credit card or bank account each month.
A Planned Gift
A planned gift is a special gift that is arranged now and that will provide funds to the CPAA in the future. By making a planned gift, you leave a legacy and ensure that the work of the CPAA continues in the future. There are many creative and tax efficient ways for you to make a planned gift, including:
|Requests||A provision in your will to leave some of your assets to the CPAA.|
|Securities||A gift of publicly-traded, appreciated securities, which qualifies for tax exemption from capital gains.|
|Life Insurance Policy Donations||Making the CPAA a beneficiary of your life insurance policy by changing an existing policy, or purchasing a new one.|
|Retirement Funds||A donation of the remaining funds in your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF).|
|Property||Gifts of real estate or personal property such as jewelry, antiques and valuable collections that are appraised by an independent appraiser to determine their fair market value. A tax receipt will be issued based on the appraisal.|
|Endowment Funds||A protected gift which provides a permanent source of income for the CPAA. Your contributions are held in trust by the CPAA and you will receive a tax receipt for the value of your contributions to the fund.|
