Leave a gift in your will
Leaving a gift in your will creates a legacy of support. Many people chose to make add CFSC to their will when they wish to make a major gift while retaining their assets during their lifetime.
The simplest way to do this is through a “specific bequest”, which is a clause in your will that leaves a specified asset or amount of funds to the Canadian Friends Service Committee.
Another option is a “residual bequest”, what is left after specific items, fees, and taxes have been paid. A residual bequest can be a percentage of the amount left in the estate or the entire amount.
A “residual bequest subject to life interest” is when the Canadian Friends Service Committee is the ultimate beneficiary after other beneficiaries have had use of the income from the estate during their lifetime.
“Contingency bequests” specify that the Canadian Friends Service Committee will be a beneficiary in the event of a prior death of other beneficiaries.
This information is very general. We encourage you to consult with a lawyer in the preparation of your Will and for specific wording that meets your intentions with regards to making a bequest.
