A gift today to the Hamilton Jewish Federation Legacy Endowment Fund of Hamilton, under the management of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto, will allow you to be there for your family, your community, and the Jewish people whenever help is needed. There are many wonderful and easy ways to make a gift for the future.
A Charitable Bequest is a simple and thoughtful way to leave a legacy. Whether it is a set dollar amount or a percentage of your estate, a bequest in your will can allow you to make a meaningful legacy gift.
GIFT OF CASH OR ASSETS
An outright gift of cash or appreciated assets like stocks or bonds is the easiest way.
GIFT OF LIFE INSURANCE
Life insurance is an advantageous way to fund an endowment at a modest current cost. You may purchase a new policy designating the Legacy Endowment Fund as owner and beneficiary, or transfer an existing policy to the Legacy Endowment Fund.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES
Benefit from a tax deduction on the current market value of appreciated securities or stock options and eliminate capital gains tax. Enjoy the fruits of your charitable dollars now, during your lifetime.
GIFTS OF RRSPs and RRIFs
Pension plans can be subject to high taxes when left in your estate. This makes them ideal for transfer in whole or in part to a charity.
CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUST
A Charitable Remainder Trust is an effective way to provide you with income during your lifetime. After your lifetime, the property remaining in the trust will be invested in the Hamilton Legacy Endowment Fund.
CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY
A Charitable Gift Annuity is an easy option that provides you and/or your spouse or beneficiary a fixed sum each year for life, while leaving a permanent legacy after death.
A Designated Fund is an endowment that provides a permanent source of income to sustain a program, project or agency that is most important to you.
With a Perpetual Annual Campaign Endowment (PACE) you can endow your gift to the UJA Federation of Hamilton Annual Campaign and guarantee future support for critical programs and services in the Jewish community. With a PACE, your generous annual gift will be there forever.
DONOR ADVISED FUND
A Donor Advised Fund allows you to manage your charitable giving. You can recommend charitable distributions to your choice of a large number of qualified charitable organizations using the income from your fund.
BAR AND BAT MITZVAH
The Bar or Bat Mitzvah program gives teens first-hand experience in the joy of charitable giving. Making a difference in the world around us helps to empower young men and women as they take their place in the community as responsible adults.
LION OF JUDAH ENDOWMENT (LOJE)
A Lion of Judah Endowment (LOJE) is a permanent fund dedicated to endowing a woman's Lion of Judah gift to the UJA Federation Annual Campaign.
