For 75 years, this institution has relied on the faithful and generous support of many individuals, families and churches as it seeks to fulfill its mission. Now, more than ever, Taylor welcomes your continued partnership in the mission to which we have been called.
Taylor College and Seminary is a registered charitable organization in both Canada (11905-8907-RR0001) and in the United States of America (EIN-30-0193723), and tax-deductible receipts are issued for gifts received.
You can support Taylor in several key ways:

SECURITIES: As gifts to Taylor, publicly traded securities are ideal and also confer excellent tax advantages to the donor in both Canada and the United States. Your gift is receipted at the closing market value of the securities on the date of the ownership transfer is completed. Current income tax rules provide for very favorable tax treatment of capital gains on securities donated to charities. For more details on the tax treatment of gifts of negotiable securities, contact the Development Office at 1-800-567-4988 (toll free) or 431-5200 (local).
ESTATE PLANNING: We encourage you to include Taylor in your estate planning. To explore the options available for planned giving, we invite you to contact Becky Hilbich, our Director of Development, Church and Alumni Relations at 780-431-5276 ([email protected]) or President David Williams at 780-431-5207 ([email protected]).
Specifically, you can discuss such options as:
♦ INSURANCE POLICIES: Make a significant and lasting gift to Taylor with a small cash investment: consider an insurance policy, naming the school as the beneficiary! Your gift could take the form of the transfer of ownership of an existing life policy or the purchase of a new policy. You can receive a tax receipt for all premium payments as well as for the value of the cash surrender at the time of transfer. At the time of your death, the proceeds of the life policy go to Taylor and the project or fund that you designated.
♦ BEQUESTS: Choose to include the school in your estate plans by making a specific bequest to Taylor. There are some excellent tax planning benefits available by making a bequest through your estate. This can take the form of a specified dollar amount or the bequest of specific assets, making a significant gift that serves as a legacy for you and your family.
♦ CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITIES: Through the purchase of a charitable gift annuity, you can realize above market income returns over your lifetime, make a sizeable charitable gift, and receive favorable tax treatment on the income from the annuity. A gift annuity is a financial agreement in which you make an irrevocable gift to Taylor and for which you receive a guaranteed income for life.
