A bequest of cash or property through your will to the Burnaby Hospice Society can be a tangible expression of appreciation for the services the we offer and a gesture that might not be financially possible during your working or retirement years. There are several ways to make a bequest to the Burnaby Hospice Society:
- Special bequest: a fixed amount of cash or a particular asset or property
- Percentage share: a percentage share of the whole estate
- Contingent bequest: will only take effect in the event of the prior death of other beneficiaries
If you are planning to have a will drafted for the first time, or are considering making changes to your current will, your financial advisor can include a bequest to Burnaby Hospice Society.
Charitable gifts made in a will are deemed made in the year of death. Therefore, the charitable tax receipt is issued to the estate and can offset any tax owing from it. The information you provide is kept strictly confidential. You are not obligated to maintain your bequest should your circumstances or intentions change. A bequest is a revocable gift and you can modify or amend your will at any time.
To help us plan for the future, please let us know if you have already made a bequest to the Society. We would welcome the opportunity to thank you for your legacy.
