PLAN YOUR LEGACY GIFT

Updating your will? Or maybe you’re creating your first will? Either way, if you are reading this chances are you are also considering adding a charitable gift to your estate plans.

Planned gifts are an excellent way to make a gift and you don’t need have a lot of means to have a great impact. Your gift creates a lasting legacy that helps the Cancer Foundation ensure that local cancer patients have access to the very latest treatments and support that they really need. Your future gift inspires our researchers to work harder to find the best treatments, and your gift also gives hope to those facing cancer.

Adding a charitable gift to your will is very straightforward and we can help answer any questions you have about the process and how to create the legacy you want. While we can’t give you any legal advice about how to structure your will, we would be happy to speak to you about your options and how your donation will give hope to those affected by cancer in the future.

If you have questions or would like to discuss your options for making a planned gift, you can call Marianne Loken at 613-247-3527 ext. 263 or email her at mloken@ottawacancer.ca. She’d be happy to speak with you.

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, THINKING ABOUT OTHER WAYS TO GIVE, BUT NOT READY TO CALL?

We’ve put together some helpful informationabout leaving a gift through your estate or just adding a codicil to your existing will. After reading through the information, we suggest that you speak with your lawyer or financial advisor about a gift that would best suit your situation.

Once you’ve made your planned gift, please let us know. We want to thank you and recognize your contribution by inviting you to join the Visionary Circle. Just contact Marianne Loken at 613-247-3527 ext. 263 or email her at mloken@ottawacancer.ca.

AS A MEMBER OF THE VISIONARY CIRCLE, YOU WILL RECEIVE:
  • Recognition of your gift on our donor wall at the Cancer Foundation’s Maplesoft Centre (of course, if you wish for your gift to remain anonymous, we will ensure that you are only thanked privately.)
  • Regular updates about how your support is changing cancer care in our community.
  • Invitations to events with other members of the Circle.
