CANADA & U.S. PLANNED GIVING
Giving to those who need education and helping to bring hope through Christ-centered teaching: these allow us the joy of seeing many young lives transformed by the life-giving message Christ followers bring into society. As we give generously of ourselves and witness what God does with our gifts, we discover the reward of being part of something bigger than ourselves.

Canada Planned Giving

Bequests
Your Will is an excellent gift instrument and can be used to leave a legacy to your favorite charities. A Will is the cornerstone to any estate planning. It is the last communication you will have with your family and another opportunity to reaffirm your priorities and values to them. By using the services of Link Charity, with one letter of direction outlined by you, this become a “one-stop shop” allowing you to give to a multiple of charities with one gift and one receipt.
Appreciated Securities
There are considerable tax benefits available if you give stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and property directly to charity. You will receive a tax receipt for the market value of your donated assets and will avoid paying capital gains taxes-a double benefit.

Fill out the form on Link Charities website.
Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is an agreement under which you donate a capital sum to a registered charity and in return, the charity guarantees you regular payments at an attractive rate for the rest of your life. An immediate tax receipt for a portion of the gift and a portion of tax-free income based on age are attractive benefits as well. Here is the link to Link Charities present annuity rate chart:  Annuity rate chart

The Annuity requires no management:

  1. All or a large part of your Gift Annuity is exempt from income tax.
  2. There is an immediate, one-time charitable receipt available for at Least 20% of the capital amount.
  3. At the end of your life, when you no longer require payments, the remainder of the Gift Annuity capital becomes an immediate, direct gift for your favorite charities.

Each of these planned giving options needs careful attention and prayerful consideration. By taking advantage of the attractive financial services offered by Link Charity Canada, you can further the work of TeachBeyond while being a good steward of the financial resources God has given you.

Life Insurance
Life insurance is an excellent estate planning tool and can be used to create a significant gift to TeachBeyond. It can also be used, along with the RRSP charitable giving, to balance out estate planning, allowing you plan for a tax-efficient legacy to your family.
Registered Retirement Funds
The tax advantages of a RRSP generate significant benefits during a person’s lifetime, but eventually the taxes have to be paid. These taxes can be so high that up to half the amount can be lost as the funds are passed on to family at the end of one’s life. Designating a charity as the beneficiary can be an efficient way to help with tax planning, allowing the charitable receipt to cancel out the tax to be paid and offering you an opportunity to give to a charity.

Giving Appreciated Securities

The gifting of appreciated securities which have been held for at least a year and increased in value since the time of purchase, allow you to receive a charitable receipt for the fair market value, avoiding capital gains tax.

Giving from your IRA

With favourable tax laws, many donors who are 70.5 years of age and older are using their Individual Retirement account (IRA) to give to charity.  You do not receive an income tax deduction with this donation, but you will not pay taxes on any distributions made.

Giving through your will

Allocating a portion of your assets in a will, naming your favourite ministries as beneficiaries is an easy way to continue your legacy of giving.  This simple process can be used for naming a beneficiary of a tax-deferred retirement account as well, allowing the ministry to receive the funds in a tax-free environment.

Charitable Gift Annuities

A CGA allows you tax-advantaged income based on your age, which cannot be outlived, allowing you to give to TeachBeyond with the remainder of the gift annuity capital at the end of your life.

Life Insurance

A life insurance policy can be gifted to TeachBeyond during life, allowing you a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the policy.

Donor Advised Funds

DAF’s are a simple and inexpensive alternative to a family foundation, allowing you to give over your lifetime or after death, providing you with an immediate charitable deduction.
