After making sure his or her family and loved ones are well taken care of, a donor may opt to inscribe a significant donation to the Gatineau Health Foundation into his or her will. In the event of major life changes, the donor can always modify the will according to his or her situation.
Gifts by will reduce the taxes payable upon death and confer non-refundable tax credits worth nearly 50% of the value of the donation. The liquidator will be able to use the receipt obtained for this donation to cover up to 100% of the net income for the year of death and the year prior, if there is a surplus. Au moment de l’inclusion d’un don dans votre testament, assurez-vous d’en nommer le bénéficiaire de façon précise.
Here are some examples of testamentary provisions:
I bequeath $100,000 to the Gatineau Health Foundation to support its mission OR
I bequeath my entire estate to the Gatineau Health Foundation, after payment of debts and specific legacies OR
I bequeath all of my movable and immovable property to the Gatineau Health Foundation, after payment of debts and specific legacies OR I bequeath all of my movable and immovable property to the Gatineau Health Foundation.
