Estate Planning

Does your will incorporate your faith and values? Will the legacy you leave reflect the life you lived?

Focus on the Family Canada has partnered with ADVISORS with Purpose, a Christian financial planning group, to help you update your will or estate plan to ensure that it reflects your desires and fulfills your goals. Inadequate, outdated or non-existent wills can reduce an estate’s size through easily avoidable taxes. These taxes could thwart your wishes for how you want your estate’s proceeds to be distributed to your heirs, to fund ministries, or both.

ADVISORS with Purpose is an objective third party who wants to help you steward your resources in the best way — taking care of your family and the Kingdom — when you’re no longer here to take care of it on your own and to keep the tax burden low on your loved ones who are left to take care of your estate. Whether your estate is large or small, everyone can benefit from ADVISORS with Purpose estate and gift planning services.

If you’re interested in a complimentary consultation with an estate specialist or would like more information about ADVISORS with Purpose, please visit our Legacy Giving webpage.

Gift of Securities

A gift of securities is an ideal way to support the work God is doing through Focus on the Family Canada while avoiding the tax burden of capital gains. In the spring of 2006, the Canadian government eliminated the tax on capital gains when securities are donated to a private charity.

Under this new law, you are able to give securities direct to a charity, pay no taxes and receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities — either the closing value on the day of transfer or the proceeds of the sale, before commission and brokerage fees if sold on the day of transfer.
