Giving Options for Individuals

In Memoriam
Give a donation in memory of a loved one, or name United Way Alberta Northwest as a designated charity in lieu of flowers.

The Gift of Securities
This is the most tax-effective way to donate, because it removes the taxation of capital gains. You will receive a tax receipt for the market value of your donation.

Planned Giving
Whether giving today or planning for the future, we can help you and/or your financial advisor plan a gift that meets your charitable, financial and tax goals.

  • Bequest - Leave a portion of your estate to United Way in your will.
  • Life Insurance Policies - Name United Way as a beneficiary in an existing policy, or purchase a new policy in United Way’s name.
  • RRSPs - If a portion or the entire amount of an RRSP is donated upon death, most or all taxes owing can be eliminated through careful planning

You may also wish to consider the gift of your time by volunteering.
