Leaving a gift in your will is the most common form of planned giving. You retain full control of your assets and your estate receives a donation receipt that can be used to reduce income tax payable by the estate.
Gifts of Real Estate or Other Assets
Real estate or other assets, such as privately-held companies or works of art, may also be given to the Ontario 4-H Foundation. A donation receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the gift.
Gifts of Residual Interest
