  1. Jack, do you have a list of Charities who might be willing to accept the Donation of an existing life policy and take over paying the future premiums if the numbers make sense?

    Have you heard of LifePoint Foundation Canada which was forced last August by FSCO to shut down its website http://www.lifepointfoundation.org for soliciting for the donation of unwanted life policies in Ontario?

    • Hi Daniel

      Sorry no. We don’t keep a list of charities for this purpose. In fact when it comes to charitable donations – it’s our client’s role to choose the charities that matter the most to them. Where appropriate, our role as financial advisors then is to use our additional expertise in philanthropy to offer solutions that will help to maximize the impact that can be achieved with all charitable donations such as cash, bequests, and donations of excess assets such as life policies, property etc.

      Best Regards
