How to participate in Giving Forward


Wills are the most common way of Giving Forward, but many people choose to use current assets to give today. This way, they see their donation in action while reducing personal taxes.

Giving Forward provides five creative ways to support CLWR now and in the future.

  1. Leave a portion of your estate as a bequest in your will.
  2. Take out a life insurance policy making CLWR its beneficiary.
  3. Donate RRSPs or Registered Retirement Income Funds.
  4. Give a gift of property—real estate, jewellery, artwork, even a car!
  5. Donate appreciated securities.

All forms of giving attract tax benefits.
