Planned Giving

Some of our donors have asked us if there are other ways to support the Foundation’s programs both now and in the future. In fact, there are many different ways to make a planned gift to the Canadian Liver Foundation. Our Planned Giving program allows you to support our programs in a way that best suits your financial situation while at the same time it can bring you and your family tax benefits.

The most common type of planned gift is a charitable bequest in a person's Will. However, more and more Canadians are realizing the benefits of giving through methods such as gifts of publicly traded stocks, mutual funds and life insurance policies.

Planned gifts are easy to set up and they can provide you with:

  • Current and future income tax savings.
  • Estate tax savings and planning benefits.
  • A lifetime income for you and/or your spouse.
  • Philanthropic satisfaction.
  • A commitment to making a difference to the millions of Canadians affected by liver disease.

If you would like, we can arrange for a volunteer of the Canadian Liver Foundation with gift-planning expertise to speak with you to ensure your gift fits your desires, financial objectives, family needs, tax situation and our funding objectives. We can answer any of your questions about the Canadian Liver Foundation’s liver research, education and prevention programs. Please be assured that any discussion is confidential and will not obligate you to make a gift.
