HCF combines our invested endowment funds with sister foundations in Toronto and Niagara Falls to allow for the best investment returns in today’s market.

    Planned Giving

    Many people want to help others but just don’t have the money to do so. Leaving a bequest in a will is the ideal solution. People who have been actively involved in their community like to leave something in their will for charity. It is a way of sharing one’s good fortune with those who have been less fortunate, or of repaying an organization that has made a difference to your life.

    Tax Planning

    Here is a way to create innovative, comprehensive financial plans that take care of your family and friends, help you avoid taxes, and reflect the values that are important in your life. You can realize personal as well as financial benefits by making charitable giving part of your financial plan. Charitable giving can generate significant tax benefits in both annual and estate tax situations. You may think that your resources are not sufficient to consider charitable giving… there are a number of creative ways to make a gift that is compatible with your personal and financial circumstances.
