Legacy Giving

Leave a Legacy

Until all people – even those hidden in the shadows – have heard of Christ’s saving grace, we will continue to go. You have an opportunity to keep partnering with us even after God has called you home.

When you remember Pioneers Canada in your Will, you enable us to follow God’s lead regardless of where He calls us to go. You help us respond with flexibility to the ever-changing needs on the local and global scale, and help us grow and be ever more fruitful in our work of sending more missionaries.

Share your own passion for God beyond your lifetime and help us obey God’s call to teach, baptize and disciple… consider a legacy gift to Pioneers today.

What is a Legacy Gift?

A legacy gift is a bequest to Pioneers Canada in your

Will or Revocable Trust
Retirement Assets
Life Insurance policy

What are the benefits of a Legacy Gift?

  • Maintain control of your assets during your lifetime
  • Have the flexibility to modify your bequest if your circumstances change
  • Reduce your taxable estate by the amount given to Pioneers Canada
  • Make a significant gift to Pioneers Canada and designate how it should be used
  • Experience the satisfaction of knowing you can continue to help share Christ around the world beyond your lifetime

Will or Revocable Trust

Make arrangements through your investment advisor and designate Pioneers as the beneficiary in your Will.

Retirement Assets

Make arrangements by contacting your investment advisor and designating Pioneers as the beneficiary of your RRSP/RRIF.

If you have a spouse, name Pioneers as the secondary beneficiary, since all registered funds can be transferred to a spouse without triggering taxation.

Additionally we recommend leaving instructions in your will to arrange for the bequest only if your spouse predeceases you and you have no dependent children. You can choose to donate all or a portion of the proceeds.

Life Insurance

This can be done by transferring or naming Pioneers as the owner and beneficiary on an existing policy or when applying for a new policy. Then simply pay the premiums directly to Pioneers Canada and we will issue a charitable donation receipt for the full value of the policy plus any premiums.

Or you may wish to maintain ownership of an existing policy and simply change the name of the beneficiary to Pioneers. Your estate will then receive a charitable donation receipt for the full death benefit.

Advantages of donating life insurance:

  1. You receive satisfaction in knowing that a large gift to God’s work is guaranteed and will make an eternal impact in the lives of the unreached.
  2. It’s an affordable way to make a larger contribution than would normally be possible.
  3. The insurance policy is not subject to probate fees.
  4. The donation receipt may be used by your estate to offset taxes.
  5. If you are interested in making a donation of securities or desire to know more about it, please contact your financial advisor. Please contact our financial staff by emailing finance@pioneers.ca for more information or call 1 866 268 8778.

Note: Securities must be publicly-traded to qualify, and would include shares, mutual funds, segregated funds, bonds and a few other specific securities. The donation must be in the form of securities and be given directly to Pioneers. Securities that are cashed and then gifted will not be eligible for the preferred capital gains treatment.
