Planned Giving

'Leave a Legacy' Donations and Estate Planning

 

“How will I be remembered?” Helping and inspiring future generations.

 

When we review our life journey, we often search for what has left a lasting impact on others. Planning a gift in a Will that will help future generations can bring a sense of peace and joy to these contemplations. A legacy gift is one of the most significant and lasting contributions you can make to the cause of humanity.

 

Gifts For Tomorrow

 

Leaving a gift for tomorrow provides you with the opportunity to create lasting impact and long-term solutions by helping future generations in our community.

  • Bequests: Designate a specific gift or a portion of your estate to CADDAC and your estate will receive an official tax receipt.
  • Life Insurance: Life insurance is an affordable option that allows you to make an extraordinary gift to your community. You can transfer ownership of a new or existing policy, or you can make The Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada a full or partial beneficiary of a policy you continue to own.
  • Retirement Plans: You can designate CADDAC as a beneficiary of your RRSPs or RRIFs, or even a TFSA. Your gift qualifies for an official tax receipt and can offset tax payable on other assets of your estate.

 

There are a few simple ways to plan a gift in your will for the Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada. Planning for the future does not require depriving your family and loved ones to accommodate your desire to leave a charitable bequest, nor does it mean putting a strain you as you put your affairs in order.

 

Often, people choose to make “residual gifts.” This type of gift constitutes the balance of an individual’s wealth once his/her fixed obligations are met. For example, you could provide a determined amount of money to your children and grandchildren and leave a percentage of the remaining funds to CADDAC.

 

It is also possible to leave a specific percentage of your estate to the Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada. For example, you may choose to divide your estate into equal portions amongst your children and grandchildren and donate the final portion.

 

If you have any questions or to discuss legacy giving, please contact Christine Lynch at  Christine.lynch@CADDAC.ca

 

The most effective way to contribute to the future of individuals and families affected by ADHD across Canada is through planned giving, also known as granting a legacy or making a bequest. It is up to you to decide how your gift will be used; however, a general gift allows CADDAC to direct the monies received to the areas of greatest need.

 

To establish a legacy gift, please instruct your lawyer to include the following statement to your will:
