Planned Giving


-A A +A

Planned giving allows you to provide future support for the organizations that are of the greatest importance to you — and can often allow you to  make a larger contribution than you might have thought possible. These gifts ultimately provide a meaningful legacy in your name for the C.D. Howe Institute.

While the various planned gift vehicles provide the donor with definite tax advantages, it is the philanthropic commitment of the donor and his/her relationship with the C.D. Howe Institute that leads to a planned gift. Consistent with other forms of fundraising, planned giving can only be successful if the organization has a focus on building strong, engaging relationships with our donors and prospects.

Significant gifts, such as bequests, require considered planning. Timing and tax considerations are crucial. We’ll work with you, your family and advisers on a confidential basis to ensure your philanthropic goals are met.

Types of Planned Giving:


Charitable Gift Annuities

Life Insurance

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)

Gift of Residual Interest (GRI)
