How to get started
No matter the eventual size of a gift, you will find deep satisfaction when you think through what you want to achieve with your gifts. First, determine your motivation and your capacity to give. Then match these with the innovative gift options listed in the next box. You may already have a recipient organization in mind. If not, then choose an organization by searching in the third box for the group(s) that are working on your priority interests.
In this section learn about:
- your motivation to give
- the different types of environmental organizations in Canada
- the easy steps to making a gift
- your rights as a donor
Please talk with your advisors (lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, notaries, etc.) and your family about your dreams for an environmentally safe future and your current and future situations. You will be surprised to learn how easy it is to create a meaningful gift(s) now and/or later through your estate (*).
(* Gifts through your estate are also called deferred giving.)
