Create a Legacy - Planned Giving
Ways to Donate
Kidney Cancer Canada wants our supporters to choose the method of giving that is best for them and their loved ones. For some of our supporters, that will mean single charitable donations done at any time, through the mail, online or by calling us toll free at 1.866.598.7166.
For other supporters the easiest way to support us is by making an ongoing commitment to Kidney Cancer Canada on a monthly basis, donating an affordable amount like $25 to us automatically each month through preauthorized credit card or bank debit.
For others still, the choice is to Create a Legacy of Giving that extends beyond the usual giving.
You may be familiar with the term “planned giving”. Some people call it “Legacy Giving”. Both terms refer to taking a planned approach to your charitable giving, now and for the future.
If kidney cancer or our charity has touched your life, we ask you to consider leaving a gift to us in your will. This is the most common way supporters choose to make a Legacy Gift. Deciding to leave a donation to KCC this way is as simple as including one line in your will: e.g., “I give $____ to Kidney Cancer Canada Association, Charitable Registration #82167 0155 RR0001”. All donations received will be used to help improve the lives of Canadians living with kidney cancer and fund research for a cure.
Other options include the donating of securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds), donating a life insurance policy or naming our charity as the beneficiary of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF). All of these items are generous gifts that often come with immediate and considerable tax savings to the donor.
If you are just beginning your journey to considering a Legacy Gift, we recommend that you explore the various donation methods with your financial advisor to ensure your future gift is as tax effective for you as possible and takes first and foremost your family’s needs into consideration. And please consult your legal advisor for any help in drafting or revising your will.
If you have already made the decision to make a Legacy Gift to Kidney Cancer Canada, we would love the opportunity to thank you for the commitment you have made and answer any questions you may have. Drop us a note or call us and we’ll be happy to talk to you.
