Legacy Giving

A legacy or planned gift is a charitable gift made from your estate and a commitment to the future. These deferred gifts can help you make the most of your assets while, at the same time, sustain your passion for Environmental Education by making a powerful impact on the lives of children for future generations.

Making a legacy gift can be as simple as considering the people and causes that are important to you now and making arrangements to continue supporting them in the future by:

  • Leaving a Bequest (a gift in your will)
  • Naming Camp Kawartha as a beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy or RRSP
  • Creating an Endowment at Camp Kawartha

Your support will also enhance existing programs and help in developing new initiatives that will contribute to the environmental education that Camp Kawartha is known for.

Camp Kawartha encourages all donors who are planning a significant gift to seek independent legal and/or financial planning advice.

Stocks and Securities

If your shares are publicly traded on a Canadian Stock Exchange, the attached direction will enable your broker to transfer the shares to the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough’s account at RBC Dominion Securities.
The Community Foundation will issue a tax receipt for the value based on the share price at the close of business, the day that the shares are deposited to the Foundation’s account. The shares are then sold and brokerage fees and any commissions, currency exchange fees, etc. are deducted by RBC before funds realized on the sale are transferred to the Foundation. A 1% Philanthropic Advisory Service Fee on the total value of the donation will be retained by the Foundation and the balance of funds received will flow through as a grant to Camp Kawartha.
