Leave a long-lasting legacy in the future of end-of-life choice.
Support suffering Canadians with a gift to Dying With Dignity Canada in your will. It is an act that is generous, impactful, and simple, and allows you to leave a larger gift than would be possible during your lifetime, while retaining control of your assets.
You can leave cash, securities, or a percentage of your estate. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt that can lower or even eliminate estate taxes. Discuss it with your loved ones and lawyer about drafting or updating your will or adding a codicil.
Dying With Dignity Canada supporter Christie Bentham left a gift in her will that had an instrumental impact on our work to protect Canadians’ end-of-life rights. In tribute to her inspiring life and transformational gift, we created the Christie Bentham Legacy Society, a group of thoughtful donors committed to advancing Canadian’s end-of-life choice by making a bequest intention. By making your own bequest intention, you become part of this generous group. Read about Christie and Will Bentham’s remarkable legacy gift to Dying With Dignity Canada.
Please also inform us of your bequest and philanthropic intentions by filling out our legacy gift confirmation form. It enables us to thank you and, more importantly, to discuss what impact you aim to leave as your legacy. As always, we will respect your privacy and confidentiality. Every gift in every will makes a difference.
