What is Planned Giving?

Simply put, planned giving is a way for you to leave a legacy, to use a gift of funds, life insurance or another asset to ensure that your favourite charities can continue to reach their goals well into the future. Through working with a lawyer, financial advisor, or other planning professional, you can designate Easter Seals NL as a beneficiary in your plans. 

What Forms Can a Planned Gift Take?

Planned gifts are most often given in the form of a bequest after you have passed away. However, there are other, more immediate options such as gifts of life insurance or other avenues. Talk to your financial planning advisor to find out more.  

What Will A Planned Gift Do?

Many people are concerned about leaving a legacy- They want to make sure that their generous gift is used in a way that reflects them best. Our Planned Giving Co-Ordinator, Ashley Martin-Hanlon, and our Director of Corporate Affairs and Communications, Trevor Hickey, can help assure that your plan is as unique as you are.

Through careful discussion and consultation we will craft the way to best tell your story. Maybe your heart lies with one of our programs, or in Career Services- or in something entirely new. The possibilities are endless.
