Ways to Give

ANNUAL FUND

The Wycliffe Annual Fund is the mainstay of the College’s ability to sustain and grow programs, services and bursary support. It also helps us quickly address areas of greatest need.

BURSARY FUND

For many, the cost of graduate level theological study can be prohibitive. This is why Wycliffe strives to extend bursary support to each and every student. You can directly encourage this year’s students and future classes with a gift to the bursary fund. To learn more about a specific bursary or to create a new one, please call the Development Office at 416-946-3535 or give@wycliffe.utoronto.ca.

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

STOCK & SECURITIES

Giving publicly listed stocks and securities is a way to give from your assets without paying tax on any capital gain. You will receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock or security you give. You can support Wycliffe’s Annual Fund, Bursary Fund or designate your gift to a special need that you are interested in. To learn more about how to make a gift of securities to Wycliffe and to find out about Wycliffe’s current needs and special projects, please call the Development Office at 416-946-3535 or  give@wycliffe.utoronto.ca.

BEQUEST

Providing for Wycliffe in your will is one of the easiest ways to make a lasting impact on the College’s ministries.

You can decide to leave a specific amount or a residual amount (a percentage) of your estate, once loved ones and other interests are taken care of.  Making a bequest is an effective way to reduce estate taxes also. A bequest is revocable so if your circumstances change, you can change your estate plan at any time.

Sample Bequest Language

I devise and bequeath to Wycliffe College ___% of the residue of my estate [or the sum of $____________.] This gift is to be used for such purposes and designs as deemed appropriate by Wycliffe College Board of Trustees.

Most commonly, bequests to Wycliffe become part of the College’s endowment which generates income in perpetuity. But if you wish to direct your own bequest to a specific purpose, please contact the Development office to discover more about Wycliffe College’s future needs and more detailed bequest language.

LIFE INSURANCE

You can make a very large impact with relatively smaller contributions through a gift of life insurance.

Donate an existing policy and receive charitable tax receipts for the surrender value and premiums paid thereafter. Or, name Wycliffe College as the beneficiary of an existing or workplace policy and your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt. Or, create a new policy and receive charitable tax receipts for subsequent premium payments.

REGISTERED RETIREMENT FUNDS

You can name Wycliffe College as the beneficiary of funds remaining in your Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs).

Doing this is simple, there is no cost and with a charitable tax receipt, it is an effective way to minimize final taxation on these assets.
