Planned giving is a great way to help
A life gift, such as your home, is a generous and unique planned gift of enormous benefit to the Kinsmen Foundation. You can take advantage of significant tax benefits while still living in your home. The tax benefits of a life gift also apply to farmland.
Naming the Kinsmen Foundation as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy is a thoughtful way of making a major contribution to your community. Not only will you be able to avoid using existing estate proceeds, but all premiums paid on the policy will be tax deductible.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Annuities like RRSPs, bonds or shares, when left to the Kinsmen Foundation, can earn income for you while you're alive and put you in a tax preferred status. You can choose to have the payments begin immediately, or you can defer the payments so that they supplement your retirement income in the future.
Your Memorial Contribution to the Kinsmen Foundation provides a thoughtful symbol of your devotion to the memory of a loved one. Your name will be sent to the bereaved family, but the amount of the gift will not be disclosed. You will receive an official receipt for your tax-exempt contribution.
