THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN MAKE THE VISION A REALITY.
A one-time gift of cash can be made to the Endowment Fund where it will be matched and held for the benefit of the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund. Gifts to the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund can also be made through the Annual Fund for the immediate use.
You can make your gift through a multi-year pledge which you can pay monthly, quarterly, or annually.
By including the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund among the beneficiaries of your will you can create a permanent legacy for yourself while investing in the young performers of tomorrow. A bequest allows you to make a substantial gift in the future without diminishing your assets today.
Bequests to the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund can include cash, securities, real estate, other property, or a percentage of the residue of your estate. To ensure that your wishes are honoured, a bequest should be prepared in consultation with your lawyer and discussed with Tafelmusik.
Make a Gift that Offers Tax Benefits A Gift of Securities details
Donating publicly traded stocks and securities is a tax-smart way to support the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund. You will receive a tax receipt for the full market value of the stocks or securities, and you will not be subject to any capital gains tax. This enables you to make a significant gift and receive a considerable tax advantage. Download form (pdf)
A life insurance policy can be an effective way to maximize your contribution to the Jeanne Lamon Young Artist Fund. A modest annual premium paid over time enables you to make a significant, lasting gift to the Fund with minimal outlay of current savings or income.
Gifts of life insurance are made by transferring ownership of an existing or new policy to Tafelmusik. You receive a tax receipt for premiums paid after the date of transfer. You can also name Tafelmusik as beneficiary of your policy; the resulting tax credit will reduce estate taxes and increase the after-tax value of your estate.
A charitable gift annuity can allow you to make a gift to the Fund, save tax, and increase your income. With a charitable gift annuity, you receive a guaranteed amount of income for life while also supporting the Young Artist Fund. Tafelmusik can assist you with information on how you can benefit from this type of gift.
GIFTS TO THE ENDOWMENT MAY BE MATCHED UP TO 100% BY CANADIAN HERITAGE, WHICH MEANS THAT THE VALUE OF YOUR GIFT COULD BE DOUBLED!
