Canadians have a strong history of giving to support their principles and beliefs. To meet the challenges facing our constitutional freedoms—from provincial law societies to campus censorship and speech codes—JCCF relies on this tradition. Since JCCF receives no government funding, we depend on the generosity of people like you and your dedication to the defence of our freedoms.

The JCCF is a registered charity (charitable registration number 817174865-RR0001) and issues official tax receipts to donors for donations of $50 or more.  The JCCF does not ask for, or accept, any government funding.  We rely entirely on the voluntary donations of Canadians who support our work in support of freedom and justice.

The Justice Centre accepts donations via E-Transfer. If you would like to send a secure E-Transfer to the Justice Centre, please email your gift to admin@jccf.ca, and be sure to provide us with the secure password of your choosing, by emailing admin@jccf.ca or phoning 403-475-3622.

If you would like to set up a monthly giving option, please contact admin@jccf.ca.

If you prefer to send a cheque, our mailing address is #253, 7620 Elbow Drive SW • Calgary, AB • T2V 1K2

Planned Giving

The JCCF works with donors to facilitate planned giving in support of its work defending the constitutional freedoms of Canadians.  Planning giving allows donors to prepare for the future while leaving their current finances intact. It’s the simplest way to leave a legacy without diminishing assets today.

 

 

Bequests

Canada’s tax laws encourage donations to charities by providing tax credits to donors that reduce the amount of tax their estate will have to pay.  We hope that you will consider amending your will to include a gift to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms.  This can be done in a way that allows you to leave a legacy without diminishing your assets today.

In your Will, you can designate a specific amount of money, a piece of property, a portion of your estate, or a portion of the “residue” (remainder) of your estate to the JCCF, thereby making a memorial contribution to defending the constitutional freedoms of Canadians.

Publicly traded securities (e.g. shares, bonds, mutual funds) can also be designated as your gift and are exempt from capital gains tax when bequeathed to the JCCF.

Bequests in your will are flexible, and may be tailored to your specific wishes. Consider these options:

Specific/Outright/Percentage bequests

The simplest way to leave a gift: you designate a specific asset, sum of money, or percentage of your estate as a gift to the JCCF in your Will.

Residual bequest

You specify that you want the JCCF to receive a portion or all the remainder of your estate after debts, taxes, administrative expenses, and other specific bequests have been settled.

Residual bequest subject to life interest

You specify a bequest following the death of certain other beneficiaries who receive the benefit of your estate for their lifetime.

Contingent bequest

You specify that you want the JCCF to receive a gift only in the event of the prior death of other beneficiaries.

Securities

Donations of publicly traded securities are now exempt from capital gains tax.

Securities may include stocks, bonds, bills, warrants, and futures traded on approved stock exchanges in Canada and certain other countries. They also include mutual funds and employee stock options.

Imagine making a significant philanthropic gift regardless of the size of your estate, and without any impact on the legacy you leave to your heirs.  Using life insurance as a charitable giving tool allows you to make a generous gift at relatively modest cost.

There are two ways to gift life insurance: You may name the JCCF as either the owner, or as the beneficiary, of a policy.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) involves the transfer of property (e.g. cash, securities, or real estate) to a registered charity.  Once established, a CRT will provide you with a guaranteed stream of income for your life, or for a fixed term, depending on what you set up with your lawyer, accountant or financial planner.  The JCCF would receive the transferred amount as a donation upon your passing.

RRSPs & RRIFs

RRSPs and RRIFs can significantly increase the income on your estate’s final tax return. Where a spouse is designated the beneficiary of these registered savings, they can be transferred free of tax liability to the spouse; however, if there is no surviving spouse (or disabled child), naming a charity as the beneficiary will offset taxes owing with donation tax credits.

You can make a legacy gift of RRSP and RRIF funds simply by naming the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms as the primary or alternate beneficiary of the plan.

To ensure that making a charitable gift of RRSPs RRIFs, or of any of the other options discussed above is right for you, we advise you to consult a tax professional.

 

Please take advantage of these new giving options and continue to support the work of the JCCF in 2017.  The JCCF proudly receives no government funding.  The JCCF is a registered charity (charitable registration number 817174865-RR0001) and issues official tax receipts to donors for donations of $50 or more.
