We're pleased to offer donors the option to make a monthly gift and provide you with the convenient choice of debiting your bank account or credit card on the same date each month. It's so easy! Your gift can automatically be deducted from your account, and there are no fees. The beauty of monthly giving is that it allows Calgary Queer Arts Society to budget for the year ahead knowing that ongoing donor support can be counted on.
A planned gift to Calgary Queer Arts Society can take many forms – making a meaningful contribution to your community and the people you love, and helping you address a variety of personal financial goals at the same time. You might want to make a significant gift during your lifetime, or as part of your estate. We can work with you and your advisors to create a gift plan.
A Bequest in Your Will
You may choose to bequest a portion of your estate to a specific Calgary Queer Arts Society program, or to the general operating of the organization. Bequests allow you to maintain control over your estate throughout your lifetime and beyond.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of publicly traded securities have increased considerably since the Federal Government decreased the tax on capital gains.
Gifts of Life Insurance Policies
You can make a very significant gift to Calgary Queer Arts Society without great expense by donating a new insurance policy or an existing policy that you no longer need.
Gifts of Property
Gifts of real estate, works of art and other tangible assets may be made as a current donation or through your will. You may also decide that you or your beneficiaries retain use of that particular asset for your or their lifetimes.
Charitable Gift Annuities
You may purchase an annuity, whereby you or a beneficiary realizes a guaranteed income payment for life and a portion is donated to Calgary Queer Arts Society.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Transfer cash or other assets to a trust, and receive or designate a fixed payment or interest income. Following your death, the assets in the trust become the property of Calgary Queer Arts Society.
We recommend that you consult with your financial advisor concerning an arrangement for a planned gift.
