Bequests and other planned giving
Planning a gift to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation is a way to do something significant for Quebec mothers and children. It’s a way to make your legacy more meaningful. Whatever the value of your estate, there are several ways for you to give. Make a bequest in your will or donate life insurance, securities or your RRSP, and leave a life-changing legacy.
Making a bequest to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation is a beautiful way to pass on your values to your family and the community. With a planned bequest, you’ll leave a lasting, optimistic impression as you support future generations. Help sow the seeds of hope for a healthier future for the mothers and children of Sainte-Justine.
Have you left something in your will to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation? Contact us so we can thank you and make sure that your philanthropic wishes can be fulfilled as you intend. Your promise of a donation will be kept confidential, if you like.
Life insurance donation
Naming the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy is a way to make a considerable donation by spending only a fraction of the amount. You pay the annual premiums, and on your death, the Foundation receives the insured capital. Tax credits are granted every year to you or to your estate on your death, depending on the method chosen:
- You remain the owner of the life insurance policy
- The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation becomes the owner of the life insurance policy
- You surrender an existing life insurance policy
Other planned giving
Do something today for tomorrow, something you’ll be extremely proud of. Planning a gift is one of the most powerful testimonies of hope there is.
Depending on your personal and family situation, there are other options:
• Donating an RRSP
• Donating securities
• Establishing a memorial fund
The Foundation has a team of specialized professionals to help you every step of the way as you plan your philanthropic gesture. We also recommend that you talk to a professional familiar with your personal and family situation (financial advisor, notary, accountant, etc.), in order to maximize the tax advantages associated with this type of donation. Please get in touch with us at 514-345-4710 if you have any questions.
