Passing on freely the gifts that God has entrusted to us is a privilege. Many of us living here in North America have been blessed with an abundance of material goods, beyond even what we require to provide for our own needs, and so in God’s providence, we have been able to give to His kingdom – church, school, missions and more. If we have been able to give to various causes, we know the truth of Scripture that says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

No doubt our thoughts also go to the time when we must leave these accumulated resources behind. How can I leave a legacy behind that reflects my priorities and will provide maximum impact to God’s kingdom, even after I am gone? How can I wisely and most effectively release my assets and be a faithful steward? How can I best pass on my resources to the charities I love, by minimizing estate taxation and maximizing advantages? Can I give things besides money? There are a number of factors and possibilities to consider in the whole realm of Planned Giving.

Also, some of the information will not be pertinent to both Canadians and Americans alike.
