Charitable Giving Plan
Give back on your own terms
If you’re ready to make a significant donation to a charity, setting up a Canada Gives Foundation account is an effective way to leave a lasting legacy.
Flexibility and choice
You may want to give a significant amount to one charity over a period of years, or vary the recipients of your gifts from year to year. Whatever your philanthropic goals, the objective for establishing and growing a Canada Gives Foundation account is to help make a lasting impact on the charitable causes that matter most to you, but without the expense and time involved in setting up and managing a private foundation.
How to get started
Canada Gives recommends that a foundation account be established with a minimum of $100,000. Many of our clients grow their endowment to significant levels of $1 million or more working with the tax and financial planning assistance of their trusted advisors.
