Other Ways to Give:

A Gift in Your Will

Leaving a gift in your will to Glenwood Cemetery is one of the most meaningful acts that you make in your lifetime to support Glenwood's history and to continue your legacy. Leaving a bequest or another planned gift in your will might also lower taxes owing after your passing which increases that value of what you choose to leave to your family or loved ones. Glenwood is not able to provide legal or financial advice, so we encourage you to discuss this decision with your loved ones and consult a professional for further support. 

Sample wording for leaving a gift in your will to Glenwood:

Corporate Sponsorship

You can show the community for years to come that your company cares about honouring the past, and preserving a sacred space for generations to come.  Please contact us today if you want to discuss further sponsorship opportunities. 

Some ways we are able to recognize your corporate support:

  • Commemorative plaques in Glenwood's historic Stone Chapel

  • Engraved plaques on a bench, tree plaque, or monument

  • Event sponsorship recognition (e.g., concerts, lectures, workshops)

  • Website and/or social media recognition

We are flexible and open to ideas that can make our partnership strong and long-lasting. If you have ideas or just want to brainstorm, please don't hesitate to reach out. 

Gifts of Stocks or Securities

By donating stocks or transferring a publicly traded security directly to Glenwood, you could potentially gain significant savings on capital gains taxes that would otherwise be applied. Charitable gift receipts are issued for the value of the asset at the time of transfer. 

If you are considering a gift of this type to Glenwood, we encourage you to discuss this with your financial advisor and broker. When you are ready to give, contact us to request our brokerage details and any other information that your broker may have to complete the transfer.
