For a modest cost you can make a substantial gift to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation through a gift of life insurance.
By making the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation the beneficiary of a life insurance policy you ensure that the Foundation will receive the death benefit of the policy. You can donate an existing policy or purchase a new policy.
Benefits to you:
The gift is flexible. You can structure the policy so that you only pay premiums for a limited time, select the number of payments, or even make a single payment to set up and prepay the policy. The arrangement you choose will depend on your objectives, the needs of those close to you, and your age.
You can choose when you receive the tax benefits:
- Receive the benefits in your lifetime - transfer ownership of a new or existing policy to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. You will receive a charitable donation receipt for the cash surrender value and each year you will receive a charitable donation receipt in the amount of the premiums paid
Your estate receives the benefits - designate the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary of a new or existing policy. Upon your death your estate will receive a charitable donation receipt for the value of the death benefit.
