In addition to the various types of standard donations (one-time, monthly) and the purchase of merchandise, there exist many ways of giving to the Héma-Québec Foundation through a planned gift.
Several types of planned gifts are available. However, the ones presented here are limited to the types received by foundations in more than 95% of cases.
You can plan to make a donation that will be given to the Foundation after your death. But you need to plan now.
A bequest confers fiscal advantages that can allow you to substantially reduce the tax burden of your estate. This means that a bequest made to the Foundation upon your death allows you to support a cause that matters to you, while passing on significant tax savings.
Gift of shares
This type of planned gift allows you to donate shares, bonds, mutual funds or employee stock option shares. When you make a gift of shares, you are exempt from capital gains tax. You will also get a tax receipt for the fair market value, in addition to the satisfaction of knowing that your gift will be used right away.
Life insurance policy
There are several ways to plan a gift of life insurance, whether you have a permanent or term policy. The specific terms of the donation depend on your goals, your age and your family situation. A donation of life insurance gives you access to significant tax savings. To take advantage of the tax benefits right away, you must designate the Héma-Québec Foundation as the beneficiary and owner of your policy. You will receive a tax receipt for the cash surrender value of the policy, if applicable, and another receipt every time you pay your premiums.
