Planned Giving

Leave a legacy of hope

You can help address housing needs in Toronto now and in the future by remembering us in your will or making another type of planned gift. Through our planned giving options, Habitat for Humanity Toronto can help you achieve your financial and philanthropic goals. Designate a fixed dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a particular piece of property. And, by applying investment principles to charitable giving, Habitat Toronto can ensure that your dollars have the greatest impact in transforming the lives of those living in need. There are so many reasons we would be glad you remembered us!


A bequest in your Will allows you to make a generous contribution to a charity that you may not have been able to afford during your lifetime. The amount of your bequest is 100% deductible against your income in the year of your death and can be credited against income in the year prior to death, thus reducing your estate's tax burden

Life Insurance

When you donate a life insurance policy, you are providing a substantial future gift for Habitat for Humanity Toronto. Your regular monthly payments toward a life insurance policy over several years can become a large financial contribution in the future!


A charitable gift Plus Annuity is a financially prudent way to support fighting poverty housing while taking care of your own financial needs.


Donate gifts of stock or marketable securities directly to Habitat for Humanity Toronto, now or through your estate, and realize impressive tax savings while supporting affordable home building initiatives in Toronto. You can download the stock transfer form here.

Retirement Plans (RRSP's/RRIF's)

Contributing the proceeds of a retirement fund provides you with an opportunity to make a significant gift to HFHT, receive a donation receipt for the full value of the proceeds and use the resulting tax credits to offset taxes payable by your assets.

Gifts of Property

Outright gifts of property such as real estate, artwork or jewelry are accepted 'in-kind' based on suitability. Donation receipts are issued for the fair market value of the gift.

"I found Habitat Toronto is a very friendly organization for low income families. No interest, no down payment, training for home ownership, the best thing is you can own a house even if you are on a low income.

We thank God and thank the staff of Habitat for Humanity Toronto who give us this opportunity. It's our dream; it's the goal of our life."
