Plan Your Giving
Why is a will important?
To help get you started, call today for your free copy of Chalice's Will Planning Kit.
Please note: The purpose of this Will Planning Kit is to provide general information, not to render legal advice. We strongly recommend you consult your own lawyer or other professional advisor about the applicability to your situation.
What if I change my mind later on?
Does a charitable Will bequest have to be in cash?
How will my Will bequest be used?
It is important to remember when writing a bequest gift in your Will to avoid directing the gift to a specific individual or need (i.e., your sponsored child, AIDS medication) or activity (i.e., building houses). A gift to a specific individual is considered private benevolence, and does not qualify for a charitable tax receipt as it does not meet the Canada Revenue Agency's definition of 'gift'. More general language allows Chalice the flexibility to use your gift in many different ways should the needs of our Sponsor Sites change over time.
