Gifts of Securities

Having had your life or a loved one’s life touched by care at Port Perry Hospital or simply wishing to support your community in a manner that can offer significant tax advantage is reason to consider giving an in-kind donation of securities.

Giving publicly-listed securities, like stocks, bonds and mutual funds, is an excellent and tax-savvy way to provide support.

Your gift will be eligible for a charitable tax receipt and, because capital gains on securities transferred to a charity are tax-exempt, there is potential for significant further advantage to you as the donor.

Your broker or financial advisor can advise you and help you facilitate your transfer.

Thorough a bequest, you can designate a specific amount of money, or a percentage of your full estate in support of Port Perry Hospital by naming Port Perry Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary in your Will.

We highly recommend that you speak to your lawyer to ensure your wishes are set out clearly in your Will.

As well, we encourage you to call the Foundation office to ensure we can use your donation as intended.  Plus, when you let the Foundation know, it allows us to say thank you, today, for the wonderful legacy to the community you plan to leave in the future.

There are different tax consequences that benefit different stages of life with each option. Your financial or insurance advisor can help you set this up, but please remember to let the Foundation know of your plans to ensure we can use your gift in keeping with your wishes.

Retirement Plans

You can appoint the Port Perry Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of your RRSP or RRIF, or make a donation in your Will equal to the proceeds from your retirement plan. The charitable donation tax credit has been extended to include the proceeds from RRSPs and RRIFs.

Should you name Port Perry Hospital Foundation as the beneficiary of your retirement plan, the proceeds may be transferred directly to the Foundation, which could help protect the gift from other estate costs.

Please remember to let the Foundation know of your plans to ensure we can use your gift in keeping with your wishes.

Property
