Wills and Charitable Bequests
Leaving a gift in your will (bequest) to New Visions Toronto is a powerful act of generosity. You can realize the dream of providing for the future of NVT in a way that may not have been possible during your lifetime.
Leaving a gift in your will is simple. You can provide cash, securities, property or set aside a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Discuss it with your family and consult with your professional advisors about the options that best suit your goals and circumstances.
The benefits of giving through your will:
- A gift in your will allows you to make a gift in the future without impacting your assets today
- Your estate receives a charitable tax credit that can significantly offset taxes owed
- A gift in your will is revocable and you may change your plans at any time
Be sure to inform us of your intentions and your wishes. It will give us the opportunity to thank you and, more importantly, to discuss what your gift will help to accomplish at New Visions Toronto for generations to come.

Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance is an inexpensive way to create a significant legacy for New Visions Toronto.
There are a number of ways to donate and plan your gift using life insurance:
- Consider making New Visions Toronto the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy for tax savings in your Estate
- Transfer the ownership of an existing policy to New Visions Toronto and you will get charitable tax receipts for the remaining premium payments
- If you have a fully paid policy that you no longer need, you can donate it and possibly get a larger charitable tax receipt to use right now
- Purchase a new policy and make New Visions Toronto the owner and beneficiary and receive a charitable tax receipt for your premium payments. The income tax refund you receive will make the premiums cost much less
Consult with your professional advisors to assess which options are best for your goals, stage of life, and financial circumstances.
Gifts of RRSPs and RRIF Funds

Gifts made through registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) and registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) are a popular way to offset taxes owing on funds at the time of death. When you name New Visions Toronto directly as beneficiary, your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount transferred.
