Leaving a Watershed Legacy (or planned gift) to the Lake Simcoe conservation Foundation allows us to plan for the long-term health of our watershed. By making a planned gift you will support conservation projects forever!
It is a gift that is carefully planned through your financial or estate plan. It will require legal documentation and is made from your assets, not your income. It is arranged in the present to provide funds to the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation at some point in the future.
There are many different ways to Leave a Watershed Legacy and they can be tailored to your personal and financial circumstances;
- Charitable remainder trusts
- Life insurance policies
- Gift plus annuities
What are the benefits?
Besides the great personal feeling of doing something wonderful for the future of your children and grandchildren you will:
- Contribute to the future environmental health of the Lake Simcoe watershed
- Lessen current and future taxes
- Lessen estate taxes
- A lifetime income for you and/or your spouse
Before you Leave a Watershed Legacy, we strongly encourage you to seek independent, qualified advice from your accountant, estate planner or lawyer.
