Leaving a legacy gift to SalvAide is a great way to honour your lifetime values and make a difference in the world while reducing your tax burden now and into the future.

Leave A Legacy™ is a program of the Canadian Association of Gift Planners.


When you write your will, you can make a bequest in the form of cash or property by including SalvAide as a beneficiary. You may also make a residual bequest to SalvAide; a residual bequest is a gift of all or a fraction of whatever remains after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests are paid. Here is an example of what you can write:

"I give to SalvAide, the sum of $_______ (or ________% of my estate) to be used in support of its general charitable purposes."

Life Insurance Policy

You can name SalvAide as the owner and beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. A gift of life insurance is separate from your estate and has no effect on its assets. Please consult a financial advisor or lawyer for more information.

Donating Assets-stocks, bonds, mutual funds

If you own stocks, bonds, or mutual funds shares that are traded on certain stock exchanges, you can donate them to SalvAide. The impact on your taxes is substantial. Please consult a financial advisor for more information on how to go about making this kind of donation.

Retirement Funds

You may also give a gift of RSP or RIF funds by naming your estate as the beneficiary and then providing an equivalent bequest to SalvAide.  Please speak to your financial advisor for more information.
