May is Leave a Legacy Month. Legacy giving—also known as planned giving—provides you with an opportunity to support a charity of your choice beyond your own lifetime, either directly or by memorializing someone through a bequest in their name. Legacy giving allows you to plan today to make a gift in the future so charities like FTP can continue the important work being done for years to come.
Legacy gifts may include gifts of life insurance, bequests in your will and gifts of securities (stocks, bonds, GICs). Planning gifts like this can also provide valuable tax benefits to your estate.
Leaving a legacy gift will create a lasting impact.
If you are interested in estate planning with a charity like FTP in mind, please speak to your lawyer or financial advisor.
