Legacy Partners are making a holistic transformation in our world a part of their lasting impact.
By making a future gift to Partners International, you are helping to ensure that our work of building the church and transforming communities in the name of Jesus will continue on in to the future.
Ways to make a Legacy Gift
Planned gifts can occur immediately or at times, decades in the future. The first two gift options below are options that you plan for now for end of life. The latter four options are gifts you can plan for and choose to give at any point in life.
The most common Legacy Gift is done by making a bequest in your will. You can leave a specific amount or a percentage of your estate in your will to Partners International and receive a charitable tax receipt for the full amount.
You can choose to make Partners a beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. This is a great way to make a substantial donation for a relatively low monthly cost and also receive a tax receipt.
A gift annuity is like a pension. When you donate a capital sum to Link Charity, Link Charity in turn guarantees you regular payments at an attractive rate for life.
A charitable gift annuity offers the unique ability to provide individuals or couples with a notable investment income stream while also providing a significant gift to Partners International’s work. A Charitable Gift Annuity allows individuals and couples with a higher than average investment income, to support a cause that is near and dear to their heart, while paying them back for life!
As the most highly taxed asset in your estate, it is worth considering making a donation to Partners International from your RRSP or RRIF. Canadians can receive tax credits which can help to decrease overall estate taxes.
Making a gift of stocks, mutual funds or other marketable securities to Partners International eliminates all capital gains taxes. Speak with your financial advisor to see if this option is available to you.
A Donor Advised Fund allows the donor to set up an investment fund that makes regular gifts to your favourite charities for a set period of time – or generations to come!
Our partners at Link Charity make it possible for a donor to give a large amount now, and continue to maintain control over the gift for a number of years into the future. This is accomplished by giving the gift amount to Link Charity, then when you are ready to distribute you simply give Link your instructions.
Donor-Advised Funds are worth considering for those looking for a low-admin alternative to a family foundation.

This allows the organization to apply the funds to the most pressing needs at the time of funding. The Partners International gift policy can be found here.
