Building and Special Projects
Providing care from the ground up
Tabor Home Society is grateful for all donations for building and special projects. The Tabor Home Society will be replacing the Tabor Home facility in the coming years, and while some government participation may be available, the Society must fund the remaining infrastructure and special features related to its community service, spiritual goals, and homey decor.
To inquire about donations to our endowment fund administered by the Abbotsford Community Foundation, or other projects, please contact us at 604-859-8718.
Health and Lifestyle
Do your part to improve the health of seniors
Help us meet the goal to deliver excellence in care to residents and their families.
Consider the following opportunities to help our elderly of today and of tomorrow.
Perpetual Giving Opportunities include:
- Life Insurance
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Establishing a Family Endowment Fund
- Giving to an Endowment Fund
- Gift in Kind
- Canada Savings Bond
Life insurance may be an excellent way to fund your donation without diluting your estate or depriving your loved ones. At the end of the donor’s lifetime, the insurance proceeds are paid directly to Tabor Village as the beneficiary of the policy.
Plans can be funded from new or existing policies. A tax receipt is issued by the Foundation for the amount of the premiums paid each year. Alternately, the plan can be set up so that a receipt is issued for the total insurance proceeds when paid.
A charitable gift annuity allows a donor to give cash to a charity and in return receive periodic income in the form of an annuity. The amount of the periodic payment depends upon the amount gifted and the age of the donor. Couples can purchase joint and last survivor annuities that will continue the periodic payments until the last spouse dies.
Charitable Remainder Trust
You can create an irrevocable trust funded by assets such as cash or securities and receive a receipt for income tax purposes that may be put to immediate use.
You or a designated beneficiary would receive the income earned from the trust, either for life or a specified period of years. When the trust terminates, the balance of the principal and the remainder interest will pass to the Tabor Village.
Establishing a Family Endowment Fund
In an effort to continue funding the essential needs of the Tabor Village, a Family Endowment Fund is available as a perpetual reminder to the community of a family‘s commitment to excellence at the Tabor Village. A family fund can honour a member or loved one and will live on for generations providing much needed income to Tabor Village on a regular basis.
The minimum level of commitment is $10,000 with $2,000 upon enrolment and the balance payable at $1,000 per year.
Establishing a Family Endowment Fund
An endowment is a capital gift held by the Abbotsford Foundation in perpetuity and invested to provide a steady source of income. The Endowment Fund was established as a long-term strategy to provide financial assistance to the residents for their programs and services.
A gift to the fund provides a dependable source of funding for today and tomorrow. You can contribute to these endowment funds with Tabor Village during your lifetime and receive tax benefits for donations made.
There is no minimum level of participation for this fund. Gift in Kind
A gift in kind includes tangible property other than cash, such as real estate, vehicle, jewelry or works of art.
Items are appraised and a tax receipt is issued by the Tabor Village. In some cases, you may be able to continue to have the use of property for the rest of your life.
Your RRSP or RRIF funds can name the Tabor Village as the beneficiary. Tabor Village will receive the plan proceeds and a donation receipt will be issued to your estate eliminating tax on the RRSP or RRIF.
