Planned Gifts - Make A Will Month
Over 50% of Canadians do not have a Will. By taking action and creating or updating your Will and Powers of Attorney, you will protect your family, your assets, save taxes and help in the fight against dementia. Your planned gift could be a bequest, gift of securities, gift of life insurance, major gift or other assets.
Benefits of Planned Giving include:
- Save on taxes
- Customized giving based on personal and financial circumstances
- Donation is made from assets, not current income
- Gifts are planned today for future distribution
- Planned giving is easy to arrange with help from your financial or estate advisor

Monthly giving is an easy and convenient way to support the work we do, every month!
Your dependable monthly gift allows us to plan ahead, so that any gift, large or small, makes an ongoing difference in the lives of those living with dementia. We will mail you a tax receipt at the end of the year for your cumulative donations. Monthly giving allows for a bigger impact than single time giving as it is able to help us plan for the future, save money and ensure sustainability within ASSL.

Special Occasion Giving
Celebrate the moments that bring us closer together by using a celebratory event to help support people living with dementia and their families. Many of our supporters choose to give to ASSL in lieu of favours, gifts or flowers at special occasions. If you can’t think of the right gift for that special someone, why not pay tribute to them with a gift to ASSL? Would you prefer your family and friends to make a donation to a cause close to your heart rather than giving you a gift? Or would you like to make a donation on behalf of your wedding guests in lieu of favours? Our team can offer you a unique way to help celebrate your special day or event. Whether it be a wedding, birthday, anniversary or retirement, your day will be memorable, meaningful and make a difference to the community.
To find out more about how we can help celebrate your special day, please contact Marie Marcie-Smids, Fund Development and Communications Coordinator:
