How to participate in Giving Forward

Wills are the most common way of Giving Forward, but many people choose to use current assets to give today. This way, they see their donation in action while reducing personal taxes.

Giving Forward provides five tax-deductible ways to support CLWR now and in the future.

  1. Leave a portion of your estate as a bequest in your will
  2. Take out a life insurance policy making CLWR your beneficiary
  3. Donate RRSPs or Registered Retirement Income Funds
  4. Give a gift of property—real estate, jewellery, artwork, even a car!
  5. Donate appreciated securities

CLWR can provide the estate and gift planning information you need to participate in Giving Forward.
