Your consideration in making a planned gift – whether a bequest in your will, a gift of life insurance, securities or assigned royalties – will have a lasting impact on generations of new Canadian artists, providing support and nurturing talented individuals who face dire circumstances.
It is the generosity of extraordinary and caring individuals who make planned gifts that helps ensure the Actors’ Fund of Canada is able to continue providing emergency assistance to culture workers facing crisis situations.
By including the Actors’ Fund in your plans, you can leave a legacy of goodwill, one that will extend far into the future and will continue to foster artistic creation in Canada.
Charitable Bequest Name the Actors’ Fund of Canada in your will. You can choose to give the Actors’ Fund a set amount, a percentage of your estate, or a percentage of your estate after you have ensured that your family and loved ones have been taken care of. Reduce the tax payable on your final income tax return.
Life Insurance Donate a new or existing life insurance policy to us. Make us the owner and beneficiary, or keep the policy in your name and change the beneficiary to us. Receive current and/or future tax savings.
Residuals You can choose to assign your future royalties to the Fund. A tax receipt for their value will be credited to your estate.
Gifts of securities or other non-cash property Donate cash or non-cash gifts including securities (mutual funds, stocks, bonds), real estate, collections or other property you own.
