Special Giving Options
Through careful planning and by talking with your family and financial advisor, it is often possible to provide a gift much larger than you ever thought possible.
1) Gift of Securities: A gift of appreciated securities or mutual funds will help you reduce or eliminate your capital gains tax while providing support to the individuals and communities we support.
2) Estate Planning: A bequest allows you to make a significant and meaningful gift today, while preserving your assets during your lifetime. Through your will, you can specify that a portion of your assets are donated to Operation Eyesight.
3) Life Insurance: When you give a gift of a new or existing insurance policy naming Operation Eyesight as beneficiary, you receive peace of mind in building a sizable gift for the future with small premiums now. You will enjoy tax credits during your lifetime or your estate benefits. You can also make Operation Eyesight the beneficiary of your RRSP with the same benefits.
4) Charitable Gift Annuities: These gift types, whether cash, securities or real estate, benefit both you, the donor, and Operation Eyesight. The annuity gift provides you with an annual income for life (or a guaranteed payment period) while providing a current gift to us. The amount of income received is determined by the value of the gift and the annuity rate.
5) Gifts in Kind: If you choose to provide a gift in kind, Operation Eyesight will provide a tax receipt for the monetary value of the usable tangible property. Values can vary.
