When you name Abundance Canada to receive a bequest in your will, the distribution recommendations you leave with Abundance Canada can be changed without charge at any time. If you decide to change a charity in your will, you will likely incur additional legal costs. And if the charity you identify under your will is no longer operating when you die, a gift to that charity is void. But a bequest to Abundance Canada with your recommendation for the benefit of that charity means that we will, in consultation with your family where that is appropriate, find a similar charity to benefit from your gift.
A charitable bequest in your will can provide a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or a gift of residue from the estate. The following sample will clause provides a few options on doing a gift in will through Abundance Canada. However, there are numerous ways that your giving goals may be structured. Please contact Abundance Canada to explore these options.
“ I give ($____/ ____%/ the residue) of my estate to Abundance Canada, charitable registration #12925-3308-RR0001.”
