Make A Tribute Gift

Make a donation to LSCF in honour of a family member, friend, colleague, or a special event like a wedding or graduation and we will email your designee a special personalised card with your message. The card will acknowledge that a donation has been made, but will keep the amount of your gift private. 

Planned Giving

Leaving a Watershed Legacy (or planned gift) 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;

  • Bequests
  • Securities
  • Endowments
  • 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.

Thanks to the Best Adirondack Chair Company for redesigning the famous Muskoka Chair using the “swoosh” of our logo to mimic the waves of Lake Simcoe.

These chairs are made from solid cedar, and fold for easy storage. They won’t blow off your deck or dock. Plain or stained, they are beautiful. These Canadian made chairs have a 10 year warranty.

For every Royal Lake Simcoe Chair they sell, a donation will be made by TheBestAdirondackChair.com to the LSCF to help protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed.

If you need to purchase some chairs this year, buy the Royal Lake Simcoe Chair! The next time you’re sitting on your dock or deck you’ll know you are helping to clean the air, land and water all around us.
