Open a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
Our donors can open a Legacy Account with a gift of $25,000 or more. Subsequent donations may be lower amounts and are major gifting opportunities. Friends and family can also contribute. To learn more about DAF's please contact us.
Annual Grants from Your Legacy Account
Designating The Canadian Foundation for Animal-Assisted Support Services (CFAS) as your charity of choice or as one of your charities of choice will allocate your gifts to meet both immediate and long-term needs that support people, pets, and partners (other animals involved in the delivery of Animal-Assisted Human Services (AAHS).
We would be pleased to discuss how much will be distributed each year from your Legacy Account, or we can work with you to help you make informed decisions as to the disbursement of your gifts. Administration and reporting is seamless.
Leaving a Gift in Your Will
Leaving a charitable bequest in a will often enable individuals to make a generous gift to causes that matter to them and their families. There are also significant tax savings that can be realized for the estate. Donations made in both the year of death and under the individual’s will can be claimed and, if necessary, carried back to the preceding year. The 100% net income limitation applies to the year of death and the prior year. The donation credit also applies to gifts of RRSPs, RRIFs and life insurance proceeds.
Partnering with The Canadian Foundation for Animal-Assisted Support Services by naming us as the beneficiary of these legacies will ensure that your gifts will help not just one charity but people, pets, and partners (animals in service) and related charities across Canada.
