MAKING A BEQUEST
A bequest is a gift arranged in your Will that makes a lasting legacy and can make a large impact when the organization of your choice receives it. Your estate can receive tax benefits and it makes a statement of your generosity and contribution to your community. Bequests often consist of cash savings, property, and/or appreciated investments that have increased in value since purchase (e.g. stocks, bonds and mutual funds). We are unable to deal with property bequests. If you choose to bequest a portion of your estate to us please notify us of your intention to include us in your Will. This will ensure your bequest is carried out in the way you intend as we can provide all the information (proper legal name, charitable registration number, CRA Business number, etc) and allows us to thank you for your support.
Residual bequest: You wish to leave a portion or share of your estate after all debts and specific bequests to loved ones are paid.
Specific bequest: You wish to leave a gift for a specific amount or percentage.
Contingent bequest: You wish to leave all or part of your estate only if other beneficiaries in your Will pass away before you.
