The (LHF) is a not-for-profit organization and a registered charitable organization (863471520RR0001). Tax receipts are issued for donations. Here are some ways in which you can contribute to the healing process:
Outright gifts and pledges: may be made in cash, cheque or credit card. Contributions may be designated for a special program.
Gifts for the future: sometimes referred to as planned gifts because they materialize at some time in the future, these include charitable bequests designed by a will or life insurance.
Gifts of appreciated property: sometimes called gifts in kind, they can take many forms such as real estate, art collections, equipment, and books. Donors receive a receipt for the fair market value of the gift as assessed by qualified parties.
Gifts of security stocks, bonds and mutual funds: the receipt is based on the value of the security at the close of the business day on the day of transfer.
Gifts that give back - Life income plans: Some donors may wish to make a major donation to the LHF but require the income from their assets to live comfortably through retirement. Gifts like charitable remainder trusts, residual interest arrangements, and charitable gift annuities are life income plans that give donors the opportunity to support LHF by making a substantial donation while preserving the income for their own purposes.
