How it works:

Transfer the gifted securities from your brokerage account to Abundance Canada in-kind instead of selling. This reduces the capital gains from 50% to zero, which generates greater tax savings than donating cash proceeds.  Abundance Canada sells those securities and distributes the cash to the Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. Abundance Canada provides you with a charitable receipt for fair market value.

  • Please note: It is always a good idea to seek professional advice from your own tax or financial advisor. Remember, even in a down market capital losses in Canada can be carried back 3 years and forward indefinitely to offset capital gains.

An up-to-date Will ensures that your family will be provided for and that the Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. will be supported. If you intend to leave a gift in your Will you can do this by making your gift a lump sum payment, a specific percentage of the residual amount of your estate, or a specific asset.

Benefit: your estate will receive a charitable receipt for the amount of the gift thus reducing or eliminating final taxes.

  • Please note: It is always a good idea to seek professional advice from your own lawyer who will provide the proper Will language to ensure your wishes are met.

Give an existing life insurance policy
You can designate Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. (our legal name) as the owner and beneficiary of an existing policy that you no longer need and receive a charitable receipt for its cash surrender value.  If further payments are required on the policy, you will receive a charitable donation receipt for all payments made after the policy is assigned to us.

Donate a new policy
You can purchase a new life insurance policy and designate Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc.  as the owner and beneficiary. In doing so, you will receive a charitable donation receipt for the full amount of all annual premiums paid.

Name Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. as beneficiary of a policy
Any death benefits paid directly to Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. under the policy will entitle your estate to a donation receipt.  As death benefits are paid directly to Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc., probate taxes can be avoided and the risk of creditor claims against the estate can be minimized.

You can name Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. as the direct beneficiary of a RRSP, RRIF or TFSA and your estate is then entitled to a donation receipt for the amount paid out on death. As this asset passes directly to the Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc. account at Abundance Canada Foundation, probate taxes can be avoided and the risk of creditor claims can be minimized.

 All you need to do is visit your financial advisor or financial institution and ask them to change the beneficiary designation to Mennonite Nursing Homes Inc.

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the nonprofit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  •  To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  • To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  • To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
  • To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  • To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
  • To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  • To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  • To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  • To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  • To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits
