About Giving | St. Clair College

The St. Clair College Advancement office is committed to assisting donors in structuring their gifts to meet their personal objectives. Planned giving, because of its flexibility and tax advantages, is increasingly the giving option of choice. The College welcomes and encourages donations of all kinds.

Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash can be designated for a specific program or project, or they can be unrestricted. Donations without restrictions allow the college to respond quickly to new ideas, initiatives and needs.


These gifts take many forms ~ equipment, art, books, real estate, stocks and bonds.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are generally gifts from one's assets that occur on death. They are also flexible arrangements and can be designed to provide a lifelong income to donors while generating gift receipts and significant income tax benefits now. Planned gifts range from bequests of appreciated property to balances of RRSP's or RRIF's.


Often referred to as "deferred gifts" or estate gifts, bequests are specified in a donor's will.

Charitable Life Insurance

A life insurance policy naming St. Clair as the owner and beneficiary allows the donor to make a significant future gift to the college for only pennies on the dollar and provides substantial tax benefits.
