Plan Your Gift, Leave a Legacy

If you are like us, you have a love for the community you live in and the family, friends and neighbours you share life with along the way. You want them to be well cared for in the years to come.

A Legacy or Planned Gift to Community Care left in your will is a gift to your loved ones and other residents in the community. It is a promise to provide support and services for their health and wellness, and improved quality of life for generations to come. You can be confident that long after you have passed, your thoughtfulness will remain a legacy through the long-lasting help you provided to our shared community.

Perhaps you can’t manage a significant gift to Community Care at the present time. But you can plan a gift that will make a great difference to many people’s lives in the future. In addition, there are considerable tax benefits to making a Legacy gift. We recommend that you discuss options with your financial advisor, lawyer and/or tax accountant.


Advise your lawyer that you wish to add a codicil to your will indicating a dollar amount or percentage of your estate be designated for the Community Care Foundation. You can designate a program that you would like to support, or indicate your legacy gift is to be used where needed the most.

Gifts in Kind/Securities

You can leave a “Gift in Kind” in your will (such as a car, house, securities, works of art or jewellery), to be sold at market value by Community Care. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt to offset estate taxes.

Gifts of Life Insurance

By making Community Care a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, you can leave a sizeable gift and benefit tax-wise. Annual insurance premium payments are tax deductible.
