Legacy Giving

Consider leaving a bequest to Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation in your will. In some circumstances, leaving a gift/bequest to a charity may reduce the amount of inheritance tax on your estate.

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift made in your will. It is a way to support causes that matter most to you throughout your lifetime. A bequest can be a specific amount or a percentage of an estate and can also name specific property, such as a home or artwork. Your estate is eligible for a tax receipt for the entire amount donated.

How do I include a gift in my will?

Contact your existing lawyer, or get professional assistance from a legal advisor experienced in preparing wills.

Please use our legal and registered name in your will

As many charities have similar names, changing even one word in the name (ex. using “society” instead of “foundation”) could result in costs to your estate, or your difficulties fulfilling your wishes. To avoid this, when planning your gift, please ensure you use our full legal name.
