Planning a Legacy Gift
When you plan a gift to the Kawartha Land Trust you are helping to protect the land you love and ensuring long-term conservation of land in the Kawarthas.
Your planned gift can honour a loved one, recognize your family or stand as a living monument to your own personal passion for the environment and love of the Kawarthas’ natural heritage.
Planned gifts allow you to:
- Gain valuable credits on your final estate income tax return
- Enjoy current tax savings and secure a lifetime income for yourself and/or your spouse
- Establish a memorial fund in the name of a loved one
- Provide a significant legacy with a small current contribution
- Leave something truly meaningful for people to remember you by
- Planned gifts are tailored to your personal circumstances. You will need to consult with your lawyer and other estate planners and financial advisors before making a gift of this nature.
Please contact us to discuss making a Planned Gift.
Bequests / Gifts in Your Will
Charitable bequests are gifts made through your will. You can choose to leave KLT a pre-determined sum of money or a percentage of your estate.
Life Insurance Policies
Giving through life insurance is a low cost way to give. You can give a new policy, an existing policy or simply name the KLT as the beneficiary.
Christie Bentham’s Legacy
Christie had a vision of protection for those special places on the lake, and to ensure an abundance of species would thrive into the future.
Christie was pragmatic. She worked tirelessly on many causes and left her mark. Christie chose to make a substantial contribution to achieve her vision, facilitated through the sale of her beloved boat and in her will, representing the greatest financial gift to Kawartha Land Trust to date.
Christie’s gifts build upon the momentum of many other families and individuals who have chosen to help protect the lake they love; through gifts of land, gifts of conservation agreements, gifts of financial support and gifts of time.
