Planned Giving

When you think about making the world a better place, we tend to think about the things we can do in our lifetime. But what about the difference we can make after?

Forge Your Life Legacy

Help us bring hope to generations of families in housing need. Through your support, you make it possible for Habitat for Humanity Okanagan to reach families in your community who need a hand up. By giving through your estate or long-term financial plans, you forge a life legacy and ensure that later generations have access to decent, safe and affordable housing.

Anyone may make a planned gift in support of Habitat for Humanity Okanagan – all it requires is careful consideration of your personal needs and choosing a planned giving vehicle that works for you.

Bequests – Maximizing Your Gift

Leaving a planned gift through bequests is the most efficient way to make a generous and significant contribution to a charity above and beyond contributions made during your lifetime and ease your future estate burden, without having to sacrifice your standard of living. The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate’s tax burden.

Gifts of life insurance, securities or RRSPs to Habitat for Humanity Okanagan are possible to meet your estate planning needs.
