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.
