Why Give

Why Planned Giving

For more than 50 years the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame has endeavoured to provide a self-sustaining, dynamic attraction designed to preserve, interpret, recognize, and honour the diverse sport history of the province. While much has been achieved to date, annual operating funds only provide limited support towards achieving our long-term strategic objectives and fulfilling our overarching vision.

Planned Giving offers the potential to:

  • Secure our future by decreasing our reliance on Saskatchewan Lotteries funding.
  • Pursue strategic initiatives such as 2016’s traveling exhibit trailer.
  • Achieve our mission on a provincial scale.
  • Commit to long-term programming initiatives or larger-scale projects beyond annual operating budget restrictions.
  • Capture and celebrate Saskatchewan’s sport history immediately as new accomplishments are realized instead of adhering to a restrictive timeline.
  • Achieve our vision.
Your Legacy is Our Future!

How To Give

Ways of Giving

A legacy gift will help the SSHF become a self-sustaining, dynamic attraction while preserving, interpreting, recognizing, and honouring Saskatchewan’s exciting sport history.

Choose the means of giving that works for you.

Wills & Bequests

Name the SSHF as a beneficiary in your will. This is the most common type of future gift.

What makes this type of giving so appealing? You can:
  • Plan for a future gift now without affecting your current cash flow.
  • Work with the SSHF to target your gift to the Legacy Support Focus area most important to you.
  • Have the flexibility to make changes to your will at any time if your personal or financial circumstances change.

There is no obligation to tell the SSHF about a future bequest gift. We are grateful for your future gift and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss our Legacy Support Focus areas with you. Should you share your plans with us, we can work together to ensure your gift is aligned to the focus area of choice in the future.

RRSPs & RRIFs

Name the SSHF, in whole or in part, as the beneficiary. A gift of retirement funds presents an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the SSHF, while enjoying beneficial tax savings.

What makes this type of giving so appealing? You can:
  • Plan for a future gift now while retaining full access to the funds for their lifetime and the donation passes to the SSHF tax free.
  • Work with the SSHF to target your gift to the Legacy Support Focus area most important to you.
  • Easily establish a RRSP/RRIF funds gift. Speak with your financial advisor or estate planner about changing or adding the SSHF as your beneficiary.

Monetary Gift

Make a cash gift to the SSHF through a lump sum, monthly, or annual contribution. Donations totaling $120 per year or more that are locked in for five years are eligible for the Sport Legacy Fund incentive program.

What makes this type of giving so appealing? You can:
  • Gift any form of cash or equivalent as a donation, including (but not limited to) cheques, money orders, bank drafts, currency or coins, cryptocurrency, and credit card payments.
  • Provide the SSHF with a gift to support the immediate needs of the organization.
  • Choose to lock in your donation for five years making it eligible for the Sport Legacy Fund incentive program and allowing you to back the Legacy Support Focus area most important to you.

Life Insurance

Life insurance allows you to leave a significant legacy gift to the SSHF at a low annual cost. Proceeds are paid directly to the SSHF so your gift is not reduced due to taxes or probate fees.

There are three ways to contribute:
  • Transfer ownership of an existing policy to the SSHF and designate the SSHF as the policy beneficiary.
  • Purchase a new policy and designate the SSHF as the owner and beneficiary.
  • Name the SSHF as a beneficiary of either a fixed dollar amount or a percentage from a pre-existing or new policy.
What makes this type of giving so appealing? You can:
  • Donate a larger gift than may otherwise be possible.
  • Work with the SSHF to target your gift to the Legacy Support Focus area most important to you.
  • Participate in the Sport Legacy Fund incentive program with your life insurance gift.

Testimonials

  • I became a planned giving donor in 1998. I continue to donate annually and, at some point in the future, the SSHF will be able to complete another amazing project because of my legacy gift – how cool is that! A small gesture now can have an incredible impact in the future!

    Bernadette McIntyre
  • Using life insurance to give a gift to the SSHF just made sense to me. It allowed me to give a much larger gift and one that will help the Hall in the future.

    Randy Lewis
  • Growing up…you learnt to deal with winning and losing without the maturity to realize the benefits of many life-lesson situations. With time you started to understand what sport did for you and recognize the value of sport for everyone. It made you realize that sport had a positive influence in your development and that you still should continue to donate your time, effort and money to create the same opportunities for youngsters growing up.
