Leave a Legacy
Leaving a lasting legacy to OCPSA is an extraordinary statement of your generosity and philanthropic values. It is also an incredible opportunity to provide for the current and future needs of your family, while also providing a charitable gift that will impact the lives of people today and the lives of those that follow.
There are many options for legacy giving. Some are deferred and will be received by OCPSA after your lifetime. Some will be put to good use during your lifetime. Each offers its own tax advantages and therefore can be very powerful tax-reducing tools.
Whatever the reason, establishing a legacy gift for OCPSA provides vital funding for programming and equipment that will enable children and adults with physical disabilities to experience the life-changing benefits of becoming physically active.
Please explore the links below to learn more about each type of legacy gift:
- Bequest in a Will
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Life Insurance
- RRSPs and RRIFs
- Appreciated Securities
- A Named Endowment
What is the next step?
Establishing a legacy gift is an important decision that requires thoughtful planning. We strongly recommend that you have an open discussion with your family regarding your legacy gift intentions so that you have their support moving forward. It is also imperative that you seek professional advice and assistance from your lawyer and/or financial advisor.
OCPSA is here to help in any way we can. Please contact us to discuss legacy gift options, tax benefits, recognition opportunities, or to ask questions. If we don’t have the answer, we will find it! Also, we would be happy to work with you, your family and your advisors, on a confidential basis to ensure that your philanthropic and financial goals are met.
