There are two primary ways in which gifts may be made to the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum Foundation: by  giving a gift of money or securities as a Gift (Inter Vivos) i.e. a gift NOW, or by making provision in your Will for the giving of a gift to the Foundation.  Remember, a Will "speaks" as from the date of death, since Wills are revocable and thus any Tax Benefits of a gift to the Foundation, through a Will, cannot be realized until one dies.  A gift (Inter Vivos)  does benefit from a reduced rate of Income Tax.  So don't wait for Spring - DO IT NOW!

 Bequests made by Will
In your Will, you may leave a lump sum bequest or a bequest of a specified percentage of the remainder of your estate, or a bequest specified as 'the rest and residue of you estate" to the Foundation.  You may also make a gift of  property or securities (bonds, GIC'S, stocks, T bills) to the Foundation by means of a provision in your Will.

Income Tax Benefits
A bequest made by your Will confers an important advantage to your estate when the bequest is made to a  Charitable organization such as the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum Foundation.  Your lawyer or financial advisor can advise you on such advantages and the implications or limitations of such bequests.

Bequest of Life Insurance
The gift of a life insurance policy can be an effective way of offering a benefit to the Foundation on your death. You may either give an existing policy which you may no longer need or a new policy obtained specifically for the purpose of making a donation to the Foundation.  In both cases, the Income Tax benefits of such gifts can be very   important to the Foundation and to you.  Consult with your Insurance Agent re the specifics of such benefits.
