Planned Giving Webinar Series 2021

ELFEC and the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa are pleased to  present a series of free webinars in 2021 highlighting different aspects of Planned Giving.  Explore different avenues of leaving a gift (or gifts!) to the charities of your choice.

Join us at our next webinar offering:
Beyond Bequests:  Exploring Giving Vehicle Options
Date:  March 23, 2021
Time:  12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (Eastern Time Zone)
To register:  click here
We will be answering:
  • What are some of the options for leaving a gift to a charity?
  • Can I leave the proceeds of a life insurance policy to a charity?
  • What is a Donor Advised Fund and how does it work?
  • Can I name my church as a beneficiary on my RRSP or RRIF?
  • What is a Charitable Remainder Trust?
  • Who do I speak with?

Life Insurance, Annuities, proceeds from an RRSP or RRIF, Charitable Remainder Trust, Donor Advised Funds - these are all options available to people who wish to meet their philanthropic goal by leaving a gift to their local congregation, the wider church, or another charity.  While each person’s situation is unique, these are some of the common ways people provide a charitable gift beyond a bequest in a Will. 

After the presentation, there will be a time for people to ask questions.  As well, anyone who registers will receive a recorded copy of the presentation.
