Legacy Funding

Your Legacy is a Lifeline
2am. The call goes out. Trained volunteers from all walks of life … rush out into the freezing wind and darkness to save someone they’ve never met.

A gift in your Will can help bring our brave volunteer crews home safely. Your legacy will be the protective gear they can count on, the training that keeps them safe, and the strong rescue vessel that ploughs through fierce winds and waves to reach people in distress

Legacy giving means making a charitable gift that maximizes your tax and financial benefits. You can decide if the gift is one-time, a series of payments or ongoing support.

While many donors make gifts through bequests in their Will, there are other estate planning options. By including charitable gifts in your estate planning, you may eliminate significant taxes payable upon your death.

A gift in your will is one of the most powerful gifts you can make. You can make a specific cash gift or leave a portion of your estate to Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 34. Whatever form your donation takes, it will have the same effect: saving lives on the water for years to come.

Your estate will receive a tax receipt for the full value of your charitable gifts. This can minimize, or in some cases eliminate, taxes payable by your estate.

The most common types of bequests include:

Specific bequest: This is a gift of a specific amount of cash or piece of property, such as real estate, stocks, bonds, or works of art.
Residual bequest: What remains in your estate once all specific gifts, bills, and taxes are paid, is called the residue. You may choose to leave all, or a percentage, of your residue to Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 34.
