You can make a significant future gift by transferring assets into an irrevocable trust. Under the terms of the trust you can continue to enjoy the income for your lifetime or a specific duration. United Way Halifax would receive the remaining assets upon your passing.
You will also receive an immediate tax credit as a result of a donation receipt issued on set-up of the trust. The donation receipt represents the present value of the remainder trust to be received by United Way at a future time.
