Making Giving Easy: Designating your support to what’s important to you

Our donors are special people.  They have a real appreciation for the performing arts and the NAC’s role in bringing the best of music, theatre and dance to our stages.

Many of our supporters have a special passion.  For some it’s the NAC Orchestra.  For others it’s theatre or dance.  Still other donors are committed to sharing their love for the performing arts with future generations.  At the NAC Foundation, we recognize that every person is different with their own unique interests.  As a result, we are proud to offer those who are considering a charitable gift in their Will the opportunity to designate your gift.

For example, you can designate your gift to the National Youth and Education Trust to benefit emerging artists and students, or to music, theatre or dance. You can also direct your gift to highest priority needs where it will be used wherever it’s needed most.  All we ask is that you make your designated gift as broad as possible so we can put it to the best use.

Designating your gift is a choice you make as is leaving a charitable gift in your Will.  You can turn your money over to the government through taxes or you can give it to a cause that means a lot to you.  By making a gift in your Will to the NAC Foundation, you’ll receive a tax receipt and offset some of the estate taxes, potentially leaving more for your loved ones and the organizations you care about.  Please talk to your lawyer or financial advisor about planning ahead and making a bequest.

At the NAC Foundation, we deeply appreciate all legacy gifts made by our generous supporters.  If you decide to make a designated gift of your own, we promise to use it as requested and as effectively as you would want and expect from your National Arts Centre. 

For more information about making a designated gift in your Will to the NAC Foundation please contact Barry Bloom at 613 947-7000 ext. 314.
