Legacy Giving

Planned giving is one of the most thoughtful ways to support Selkirk College. It allows you and your family to benefit from making a gift now and provides a lasting remembrance of your commitment to the students at Selkirk College.

Planned gifts

Many planned gifts are deferred gifts, such as bequests and life insurance policies.

  • Gifts of cash

  • Securities

  • Real estate

  • Other gifts, structured to reduce taxes payable by you/your estate


A bequest is a donation in your will.

  • Distributed by your estate after your death.

  • The Foundation will issue a donation receipt for the bequest.

  • Your estate will receive a tax credit for up to 100% of your taxable income in the year of death and the preceding year.
