Ways To Give

Investing in education is one of the most important things you can do. Your gifts unleash the incredible power of our world’s most valuable natural resource – its people.

Monetary Gifts are assigned to their requested area, and are accepted in the form of cash, cheque, money order, electronic transfer, credit card, or by pre-authorized monthly withdrawal.

Annual contributions can be divided into 12 easy payments, working to meet your philanthropic goals, while managing your personal finances. Monthly donations can be charged to your credit card or withdrawn from your bank account. You will receive an annual charitable tax receipt at the beginning of the following year for your total annual contribution.

A wide range of non-cash donations, such as equipment and other tangible personal property are commonly referred to as ‘Gifts in Kind’. These gifts help to enhance our student’s educational experience. You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the appraised, fair market value determined on the day the gift is made. Gifts in Kind can be made during your lifetime, or through your estate by including instructions in your will.

Memorial Gifts provide an opportunity to commemorate a loved one lost. These gifts ensure a lasting legacy for the departed. Honorary Gifts pay tribute to a living friend, loved one or mentor that has played an integral role in your life.

Wills are a central pillar of estate planning. A gift by will, known as a bequest, provides you with the opportunity to support Cambrian College once your needs and those of your loved ones have been met. Gifts can be a specific dollar amount, an asset, or a percentage or residue of your estate. If you wish to direct your gift to a specific area or initiative please contact us. We want to ensure your gift is both appropriately recognized and directed to the area of your choosing.

Cambrian College can be named as a direct beneficiary of Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs).

You can donate a new policy to Cambrian without affecting other assets intended for family members. By making the College the owner and beneficiary of a new policy, the proceeds pass outside of your estate. Life insurance is not taxable when paid out as a death benefit. Payment to the charity is prompt and no probate fees are applicable.You receive an annual tax deduction for all premium payments. For example, with a donation of a $50,000 life insurance policy with a premium of $500 a year, you can claim the full $500 each year as a charitable donation.

A gift annuity combines your gift to Cambrian College with an annuity. The College purchases the annuity on your behalf through a licensed life insurance company. Your guaranteed annuity payments continue throughout your lifetime, unaffected by changes in the economy or interest rates.

Assets (money, securities, and real estate) are transferred into a trust to be managed by a trustee, such as a financial institution, a lawyer or another individual. The income generated from the capital is paid to the beneficiaries during their lifetime and Cambrian is named as the remainder beneficiary.

Donate securities directly to Cambrian College to avoid paying capital gains tax on your investments.

You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the shares when they are received, and you will not be required to declare any ensuing capital gains on income. Please fill out the Gift of Securities Donations Form and instruct your broker to transfer shares to:
