What is a Planned Gift?

A planned gift is a significant gift that you plan to give now or in the future. A planned gift to the ALS Society of Manitoba shows both generosity and foresight. There are a few other ways that you can help so many people. We understand the importance of your gift and we will make sure that it is used wisely.

Planned giving benefits both the giver and the receiver. To maximize these benefits, the gift should be carefully arranged with the help of both the society and your financial, legal or tax advisor. This way you can determine what best suits your lifestyle, make the best use of your assets, and maximize your tax savings.
