A bequest is a donation made through a will. Gifts from donor estates represent more than 80 per cent of planned gifts to canadian charities. A carefully prepared will can help make sure all reasonable provisions have been made for your dependants. Your will can be a convenient way to make a charitable gift to an organization you have supported all your life. A will also helps minimize taxes at the time of death.
By remembering The Lupus Society of Manitoba in your estate planning, you can help to ensure that our programs helping those living with lupus continue and enable our organization to continue supporting both local and national researchers.
Drafting your will to include a charitable bequest is an easy process and should always involve the proper legal assistance. A well-drafted will is an invaluable document and relatively inexpensive. If you already have a will, you can easily add a codicil making a bequest to The Lupus Society of Manitoba by contacting your legal counsel.
Donors can direct a specific amount of money in a legacy or a percentage of the estate to The Lupus Society of Manitoba. A tax receipt for the bequest goes to the donor’s estate.
Your legal council and accountant are the best people for you to work with in making an important decision such as making a bequest.
