A bequest is a gift of cash or property that you make in your will. A bequest to Highbanks Society can provide a tax benefit to your estate.
If you are thinking of including Highbanks Society in your will, we would like to meet with you or your lawyer to review the terms of the bequest, particularly if it is restricted, to ensure that we will be able to comply with your wishes.
Publicly Listed Securities
Tax incentives have made gifts of publicly listed securities an effective way to make a significant donation. You can eliminate capital gains tax and receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the shares by donating some of them directly to Highbanks Society.
An individual’s or family’s life insurance needs often change over the years. Rather than simply cancelling the insurance and losing the payments made into their policies, policy holders can make a significant gift in the future by naming Highbanks Society as the beneficiary.
We strongly encourage you to seek professional legal, estate planning and/or financial advice when making decisions about your gift to Highbanks.
