A bequest is a relatively uncomplicated way to make a gift to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

No matter how much money you have, you can leave something to charity through a will or trust. You can leave a specific amount, specific percentage, or the remainder of your estate after other bequests and debts have been paid.

Sample wording

The following is sample wording for your Will:

Percentage Gift

“I direct my trustees to pay or transfer to the Canadian Diabetes Association ___ % of my estate.”

Residual Gift

After paying debts and other bequests: “I direct my trustees to pay or transfer to the Canadian Diabetes Association the whole (or ____ %) of the residue of my estate.”

Specific Gift

“I direct my trustees to pay or transfer to the Canadian Diabetes Association the sum of $________

(OR) I direct my trustees to transfer to the Canadian Diabetes Association (identify the personal property to be given, for example 500 shares of XYZ stock).”
