Gifts of Residual Interest • give now but enjoy your gift for life

Many people don’t realize that they can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift to NLSF without touching their income or investments. Residual Interest gifts usually involve a principal residence or other personal real estate, such as a cottage or rental property, and are often given by those who plan to leave a bequest to NLSF but would like to reduce income tax now, without any changes in their living arrangements. You receive a tax receipt for the appraised value of the property.

Benefits to you

  • Tax Advantage - you receive a charitable tax receipt, thereby increasing after-tax income.
  • Fee Reduction - your asset has been removed from your estate, thereby decreasing probate fees upon death.
  • Control - you have made a significant contribution without loss of enjoyment of your asset.
  • Recognition - you and your gift can be honoured during your lifetime.
