Planning the future and an end to SIDS? Consider a gift of Life Insurance
You may have considered providing The Canadian Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths with a significant gift. You may also have a desire to find some tax relief as well.
A gift of Life Insurance may be the answer. One way to provide CFSID with a gift of life insurance is to name us as the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. This may apply to a new policy or existing policy. This gift will help you give a substantial gift to CFSID and will provide you with immediate tax relief. All you need to do is pay your premium on an on-going basis for which you would receive a charitable tax receipt (for the premium payments and the cash value of the policy if one exists).
CFSID would receive the proceeds of the policy upon your passing. You may also choose to name CFSID as the beneficiary (only, not as owner) of your new or existing insurance policy. In this case, you may name us as a primary beneficiary of all or a fraction of the proceeds of the policy or a contingent beneficiary if your primary beneficiaries predecease you. In this case, there will not be immediate tax relief but there will be a tax benefit to your estate for the portion of proceeds going to the Foundation.
