Home Donors Ways to Give Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

A century of history stands behind SAIT and a new century of possibilities stretches before us.

If SAIT has great personal meaning to you, a legacy gift is an extraordinary way to ensure your memory lives on and will make a profound difference in the lives of future generations of SAIT students.

Terrance Malkinson, Legacy Giving donor

"I know it's difficult for students to make ends meet these days. I thought for a long time about how I could support them, then it dawned on me that a legacy gift was the way to go and I just decided, 'I'm going to do this."

Legacy Gifts to SAIT

Legacy gifts from generous donors provide students the best education possible. Financial gifts to SAIT help us remain current and relevant by providing instructors and students with the latest technology and educational resources. They provide scholarships, bursaries and emergency assistance to help ensure financial need is not a barrier to graduation.

When considering a Legacy Gift, you have many options:

  • Bequest in a will
  • Gift in kind (equipment, real estate)
  • Publicly traded securities (form)
  • RRSP, RRIF or TFSA
  • Life insurance
  • Charitable annuity
Connie McEgan, Legacy Giving donor "I began looking for a way that I could make a difference - a way to leave a legacy. I wanted to leave some money behind to something that mattered to me, and I wanted it to make a difference. That is why I named SAIT as a beneficiary in my will."
