Most people are interested in how they will be remembered. Of course, the prime determinant of that personal legacy is how we lived each day; however, how we deal with our assets, after our last day, is also an important part of the equation.
What is a legacy gift?
A legacy gift, or a planned gift, is a donation to the College arranged in the present to be made available for use in the future. Legacy gifts normally pass through your estate and can help offset taxes.
Why make a legacy gift?
The main reason for these donations is the inherent satisfaction of knowing the gift you designate in your lifetime will make a difference to something you care deeply about long after you have passed.
Where does my legacy gift go?
Every legacy gift will be retained with the Upper Canada College Foundation and, unless specified, will be added to the endowment, with capital preservation as the first priority. Your gift will live on in perpetuity, honouring your memory, philanthropic wishes and experiences at UCC.
