Bequests

What is a bequest? A bequest is a gift of cash, stock or personal property given to a person or organization through Will or trust. A written Will is an effective way to direct that your final wishes are respected.

Each year, thousands of Canadians designate a bequest to benefit their favourite charity. Gifts by Will enable individuals to make significant gifts that they may not have been able to make during their lifetime. After providing for the financial needs of your family and heirs, your Will allows you to help others. Your values and wishes will live on through your generosity.

Your gift to Ancoura will enable us to provide a nurturing and fulfilling environment for adults living with a mental illness, through stable, affordable housing and a supportive community.

What are the advantages to leaving a bequest?

  • First, you can make a meaningful contribution to a cause dear to you.
  • Second, you can inspire your family and close friends to follow your example, thus, multiplying the power of your action.
  • Third, on the practical side, your bequest amount may provide tax benefits to your estate.
  • Fourth, it is easy to arrange. Simply instruct your lawyer to include a gift to Ancoura in your Will. It can be a specific amount, a percentage of your estate or the residue of your estate (a gift after debts have been paid and other gifts have been distributed).

Other ways to leave a legacy gift in your Will include:

  • Gifts of Stocks & Securities
  • Gift of Life Insurance
  • Registered Assets (RRSP & RRIF)
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Specific piece of property, such as a home.
