The support you can bring to premises that allow for philosophical, theological and pastoral reflexions like the Dominican University College place your engagement at the heart of the transmission of our religious and cultural legacy for future generations

Benoît Lacroix, O.P.

We invite you to acquaint yourself with the different types of planned giving :

Donations of eligible stocks (stocks on the financial market and other eligible stocks)

The donation of stocks on the financial market, bonds, units of a mutual fund and other similar stocks are free from income tax on capital gains, which makes this one of the most advantageous ways to help the Foundation. A receipt for tax purposes will be given to you for the market value of the stocks donated.

  • Donation of a registered plan (RRSP or RRIF)

You can donate your registered plan to the Dominican University College Foundation by indicating it in your will.

  • Charitable Annuities

A charitable annuity allows you to make a generous contribution to the Fondation and at the same time improve your liquidities. A charitable annuity is an irrevocable donation made to the Fondation in exchange of a fix annual income secured for the rest of your life.

  • Legacy gift

Designating the Dominican University College Foundation in your will is a simple way to leave some of your possessions to an honourable mission. Choosing to make a legacy donation in your will is also a way to transmit to your inheritors the values you cherished throughout your life and to make sure that they will be transmitted to the future generations.

  • Donation of a life insurance policy

By transferring a life insurance policy you currently hold to the Foundation or by subscribing to a new life insurance policy and designating the Foundation as the beneficiary.

  • Donation of real estate

You can donate a family residence to the Foundation while you still continue using it for the rest of your days. You will receive a receipt for tax purposes corresponding to the estimated value of your possession at the time of the donation.
