How You Can Help

You can participate in the Niagara Foundation for Catholic Education by making a donation, as follows:

  • Monetary Donations Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $10 and over.
  • Donations in memory of someone.
  • Gift-in-Kind (furniture, stocks, securities, real estate, etc.) Subject to independent evaluation.
  • Bequests
  • Life Insurance Proceeds

Making a bequest through a will is a common and straightforward way to arrange a planned gift and a donor may wish to provide a specific sum or percentage of an estate designated for the Niagara Foundation for Catholic Education. Another practical method of making a contribution is to make the NFCE a beneficiary of life insurance policy. A tax receipt can be issued for the full cash surrender value of the policy and if a donor chooses to take out a new policy naming the NFCE as a beneficiary; all premiums paid become tax deductible as donations. Tax receipts are also given for gifts of stock and bonds or of real or personal property. The NFCE can also be designated as a recipient of memorial gifts while making funeral arrangements. Upon the death of a loved one, families can request that memorial donations be made to the Niagara Foundation for Catholic Education. Special memorial cards are usually available in funeral homes for such donations.

The NFCE office will be pleased to assist in arranging for any information prospective donors may request and will also work with their professional advisors such as lawyer, investment advisors or insurance agents.
