Charitable Giving

Lawyers at Horne Coupar have extensive experience in the charities law field, acting as counsel for a number of charities and public foundations with respect to obtaining charitable status, addressing board governance matters, and dealing with donation policies and related matters.

We provide advice to individual donors with respect to the establishment of private foundations, the settlement of charitable remainder trusts, and tax effective gift planning generally including donations of appreciated securities. With the new tax rules in the Income Tax Act that came into force on January 1, 2015, it is more important than ever to ensure that tax credits are not lost, and our lawyers have the knowledge to guide you.

Horne Coupar will work with you to help you realize your philanthropic objectives while ensuring that your gift program maximizes the tax savings available.
