Plan a legacy

Individuals like you are our main source of funding for research and services to families.

Through our Gift Planning Program, you can plan your charitable gift to provide the greatest benefit to you, your family and the Alzheimer Society. You may choose to make your gift during your lifetime or through your estate. You can also join together with a group of family and friends to create a named fund to honour or memorialize a loved one.

Learn more in this section about the options for planned giving:

  • Bequests
  • Life insurance
  • Registered plans (RRSPs and RRIFs)
  • Charitable annuities
  • Charitable trusts
  • Securities and mutual funds
  • Named funds (expendable and endowed)

Note: Information about these options is not intended as specific financial planning or legal advice. You should always consult your legal advisors, financial planners and family members when considering a planned gift.
