What kind of legacy will you leave to your community?
Make charitable giving part of your financial plan!

Charitable giving is about creating opportunities for causes you believe in. Leaving a charitable bequest to the Gallery or its Foundation is a lasting and memorable way to contribute to your community. With careful planning, remembering the Gallery in your estate plans can easily fit into the mix of providing for your family and others.

As you continue to make important decisions on how your assets will be distributed, planned giving can become an important estate planning tool. A strategic and organized approach will provide you with both immediate and future tax savings while supporting your personal charitable goals.

When looking for ways to plan your giving more effectively — by supporting the AGW and gaining significant tax advantages — consider the following strategies:

  • A charitable bequest designated in your will
  • A gift of life insurance
  • A charitable gift annuity
  • A gift of publicly-traded securities such as stocks, bonds, GICs and royalties
  • A gift transfer such as RRSPs and RIFFs
  • A gift of cultural property such as paintings, sculptures, prints or drawingsLeave A Legacy - Ensuring our cultural history is perserved for generations to come!

Why not make the AGW or the AGW Foundation the beneficiary of your RRSPs/RRIFs,
it makes good tax sense and supports your community for generations to come...
naming the AGW or the AGW Foundation as the beneficiary is a smart "tax" way to ensuring a lasting legacy in your community. RRSPs/RRIFs are taxed as income at the highest rate on the final tax return and can result in a loss of nearly half of the assests, making them one of the most costly to pass on. By making the AGW or the AGW Foundation a direct beneficiary, your estate will receive a tax receipt for the full amount donated, and avoid any taxes on that amount.

Did you know... ?

  • A planned gift can either be a current (immediate) or deferred (bequest) gift, or both
  • Individuals continue to have the largest increase in charitable giving, exceeding corporations and foundations
  • Without a will, you will lose control over your property — it is important that you make the decisions on how your assets will be distributed.

For information on making a planned gift, contact your financial or estate planning advisor.
With your help we can ensure that the AGW is sustained for future generations!
