FAQs: How can I leave money to First-St. Andrew's?

Imagine the joy of knowing that some of the rewards from your life’s work will contribute in a meaningful way to First-St. Andrew’s future. There are a variety of ways that you may make your gift, including:

  • Bequests (donations through your will) in cash or in kind
  • Residual interest in estate value
  • Publically listed securities
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Gifts of property
  • Annuities
  • Residual value of retirement assets (RRSP or RRIF)   

All of these options provide a meaningful gift to perpetuate the mission and vision of the church and can be part of sound tax-planning as well.

When a bequest or other gift provided for in the last will and testament of the donor is received by First-St. Andrew’s United Church, a leaf, appropriately inscribed, will be added to the Proudfoot Legacy Tree in the church atrium recognizing the bequest or other testamentary gift. A notation will concurrently be made in the Memorials Book to recognize this gift.  The gift will be formalized and honoured at a special session after worship service, usually the first Sunday in May, to which friends and family will be invited.  

  • First, we urge you to work with your financial planner or legal advisor to ensure that your gift will be used to provide you with the most effective tax advantage possible.
  • If you’re interested in passing on a bequest to the church or have some questions, please contact the church office, 519-679-8182 or mail@fsaunited.com and ask to be put in touch with the chair of the Board of Trustees to discuss the matter of leaving a legacy to the church.
