Planned Gifts

A living legacy is more than a reflection of who we are.

It’s also how we see the world and the lasting impact we desire to make in it.

Combine your compassion for children waiting in foster care with your real-world tax, financial and estate planning interests by making a gift to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada. Planned gifts can be donated outright or deferred, and typically come from assets, not income. Those who make known their intentions to include the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption-Canada in their estate plans communicate their steadfast commitment to children in foster care and forever families. We would be privileged to recognize your generosity by naming you as a member (or members) of the Forever Home Society.


Our Planned Gift of Record Form can be used to share with us your intention to make a gift through:

  • Bequests
  • Life Insurance policies
  • Retirement plans
  • Trusts and annuities

Talk with your tax or legal advisor before making a planned gift to make sure it complements your overall financial goals. The best giving plan is one that fully balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family and your charitable interests. Once you have decided to include the Foundation in your estate plans, your advisor may ask you for some essential tax information.

DTFA Canada is a public foundation exempt from income tax by virtue of paragraph 149(1)(f) of the Income Tax Act (Canada). Its charity registration number is 876047804RR0001.
