This morning, Lance Wiebe, Financial Planner and member of Rotary of Fonthill, gave an interesting lecture on how to multiply  your money, when considering Charitable Givings.  

Without magic, but by making use of improved government regulations,  he demonstrated how one dollar can be turned into $5.60, when it comes to charitable givings, via tax credits.   Tax credits on charitable givings can be claimed five years into the future. 

Lance went into details on how this can be done, but I won't even attempt to explain it here.    That explanation is best left for Lance - he is the expert.   I might mention though, that Lance promoted the importance of having a will.   Everyone should have one...

Great presentation, Lance.   I hope people with a little extra cash on hand will seek your advice.   It is a win, win situation for both donor and charitable organization.
