OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
In addition to donations, there are many other ways in which you can give to the school.
Wills & Living Trusts:
Make a generous contribution to The Banff School without reducing your current income by including the school in your will or living trust.
Life Insurance: Name
The Banff School as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, and combine charitable objectives with tax advantages. As tax laws regarding gifts of life insurance policies are complex, please contact your insurance provider for more information.
Consider using the assets held in an IRA or other retirement plan to make a significant contribution to The Banff School. By designating a tax exempt entity as a beneficiary, you can help save your loved ones costly income and estate taxes.
Charitable Lead Trusts:
Utilize this philanthropic vehicle to provide substantial support to The Banff School now, and later pass assets on to heirs with a minimum of gift or estate taxes. The benefits of a charitable lead trust, including possible estate tax, gift tax, and income tax benefits will vary depending on your financial situation.
Charitable Remainder Trusts:
Take advantage of a charitable remainder trust to fulfill your giving needs while receiving income for you and those you love.
Always consult with a professional financial advisor before making these types of gifts.
