Planned Giving - Leaving A Legacy
How would you like to be remembered?
Planned gifts, such as charitable annuity gifts or legacy gifts, can help you accomplish your financial goals and, at the same time, leave a philanthropic legacy in support of human and linguistic rights, research and education. We will be happy to discuss with you the details of how you would like your gift to be used, including the possibility of a named endowment or other personal legacy.
You can build your legacy contribution with ESF in a number of ways, including:
- Making a bequest in your will for a specific sum or a portion of your estate;
- Naming The Esperantic Studies Foundation as a beneficiary of your RRSP, RRIF or pension (for the U.S. residents).
- Giving A Gift of Property or Publicly-Listed Securities (Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds)
The Esperantic Studies Foundation would welcome any gifts or bequests of property or securities. The latter, in particular, may offer considerable tax benefits (for U.S. residents) and can be easily handled through electronic transfers or by delivery.
Please contact Wallace G. Du Temple, Donations Advisor (1-250-656-1767)

We would welcome donations of personal collections.
